Zona de Carga/Loading Zone is a literary journal published annually. It is a continuing collaborative effort of graduate students in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


Zona de Carga/Loading Zone publishes fiction, poetic prose and poetry in English, Spanish, Portuguese or any combination of these languages.


We are especially interested in works that explore, question and invigorate the cultural tradition of Spanish America, Spain, Portuguese-speaking countries and the Caribbean, as well as their diasporas.



Interested in being part of Zona de Carga/Loading Zone?


Zona de Carga/Loading Zone is a creative writing journal which not only depends upon the contributions of writers but also the creative input and work of those who bring all of these writings together. There are numerous responsibilities that are equally important in the production of the journal, such as:


-collection and selection of texts to be included,


-editing, formatting, and electronic preparation of documents,


-administrative details: organization of meetings, fund seeking and solicitation, etc.


If you are interested in getting involved in the production of the journal, you are just what we are looking for, and we encourage you to do so. Contact any of the editors as a first step.
