Zona de Carga/Loading Zone is an annual journal of literary creation sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese as well as the LACIS program at the University of Wisconsin Madison, in addition to support received from private donations.

We are particularly 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.

If you wish to collaborate in our next publication, please keep in mind the following:

-Prose: Send up to 6 pages of fiction or poetic prose, double-spaced.

-Poetry: Send a minimum of 3 poems and a maximum of 6, with no more than 6 pages in total.

-Texts may be written in Spanish, English, Portuguese or any combination of these languages.

-The texts must be original versions not previously published elsewhere, including digital publications. Nor can they be submissions pending publication or have publishing/reproduction rights ceded to third parties.

-Please send texts to the following e-mail address: zdecarga@gmail.com, accompanied by a brief biographical description of the author.

-The deadline for submissions is February 1.

Selected texts will be printed in the annual publication of Zona de Carga/Loading Zone and in the online version of the journal. All rights are retained by the authors. Published authors will receive a printed copy of the journal in compensation. For further information, e-mail any one of the editors.
