New Literary Journal: Dislocate

Just passing this new literary journal along to those who might be interested.

Dislocate was founded as a new media journal of the arts in 2001 by students in the MFA program in Creative Writing at the University of Minnesota. In the spring of 2003, a group of new students got together to brainstorm ways they could develop a high-quality print journal on campus. They spoke with faculty, staff, and students past and present. The former editors of Dislocate were interested in handing their journal off to new energy. In the fall of 2004, the newly reinvigorated Dislocate completed its first web issue. The first print issue of Dislocate is due out in spring 2005. Dislocate is committed to publishing high-quality work in many different styles and forms. We publish both established and emerging writers in each of the three genres — fiction, nonfiction, and poetry — in which University of Minnesota students specialize. Each issue publishes an interview with a featured writer who has recently visited our campus, alongside a selection of his or her work.

I looked but didn't find any copyright information anywhere on the journal. It should be obvious that I hope they'll offer authors the option of licensing their work under a Creative Commons license.

Which reminds me, I haven't yet blogged about how pleasantly gobsmacked I still am about the fact that not one, not two, not three, but four journals in my discipline are letting authors choose CC licenses 8): Kairos, Computers & Composition Online, The Writing Instructor, and Lore (if you ask).
