The Ilanot Review

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The theme of our Winter 2020 edition is:



“Home is where I work, and I work everywhere.” —Alfred Nobel

Many of us spend almost all our time at home or at work, and for some of us, the two are one and the same. 

What is the nature of home?  What constitutes work? How and when do we inhabit these two sometimes conflicting domains? Is there a resolution between them?

For our HOME/WORK issue (winter 2020),  we welcome your stories, essays, poetry, graphic art, and genres that have no name. 

Here are just a few examples of themes we would be happy to see:

  • Work done inside the home, or for the benefit of the home (or homeland), including domestic labor, emotional labor, the work of building a home, or even freelancing/telecommuting from home
  • Conflict or balance between the home and the workplace
  • Finding a home at work
  • Our Earth as home, and our stewardship of the land. 
  • We’re also open to pieces that deal with just home or just work. And if you’ve got a great piece about actual homework, send that along as well!

Submission period:  September 1 2019 – December 15 2019
