Call for Submissions: Special Issue on "Biophilia"


The Dalhousie Review solicits submissions of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction for an upcoming special issue on the theme of “biophilia” or the love of non-human life (i.e. ecosystems, wilderness, environments, etc.). We are particularly looking for submissions that push the boundaries of what love for non-human life can mean in this moment of ecological precarity and threatened plenitude, challenging both the doom-and-gloom discourse of climate crisis and the Romantic tradition of nature praising. Submissons should be sent to guest editor David Huebert ( by no later than July 1, 2020. Decisions will be made by September, with publication to follow in the autumn 2020 issue.
