Editorial Focus

Dislocate is a Minnesota journal rooted in the local literary scene & attached to the University of Minnesota’s MFA program (ranked in the top 10 by P&W). dislocate benefits from contact with and access to nationally-acclaimed writers who visit the U of M, but we generally solicit & prioritize the innovative work of excellent local writers & artists, both well-known and lesser-known.

Tips From the Editor

dislocate usually accepts open submissions each fall. We are especially interested in works from writers and artists who have been connected with Minnesota or the region in some way, though the work itself does not explicitly need to be geographically related. Some issues have a chosen theme, so check our submissions guidelines for details. Recent themes have included Atlas of the Midwest and Erase/Disclose. Submit your work via Submittable. Questions? Direct them to dislocate.magazine@gmail.com
