The Common Fall 2021 Issue

DEADLINE:30 November 2020

Note: There is a submission fee of $3.00 USD

Did you grow up in the GCC countries? If so, The Common, in collaboration with guest co-editor Noor Naga, wants your work for its Fall 2021 Issue, which will feature a portfolio on migration, disorientation, and complicated relationships to “place” in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Oman.


Fiction, poetry, and essays in English on themes of millennial nomadism, civic detachment, pliable identities, and other themes, as made possible by the Gulf. While this issue will focus on migrants to the region, The Common is also accepting pieces that speak to local and indigenous perspectives.


All submissions will be considered both for the special portfolio and for the magazine more broadly.
