BOOK REVIEWS: Around 1,000 words on an academic text that deals with the theme of Food in some respect. This would preferably be interdisciplinary, but we will accept reviews of subject specific texts.

CREATIVE WRITING PIECES: Original poetry (up to 3 short or 1 long) or short stories of up to 4,000 words.

All submissions should be sent to by 1st July 2014 for articles and 31st August 2014 for Creative Writing and Reviews.

Feasts, ceremonial/ritual foods
