Palimpsest is a biannual print publication edited by graduate and professional students at Yale University, featuring fiction, poetry, visual art, nonfiction, and media related to architecture and music.

We are pleased to announce the call for submissions for our upcoming issue, Volume IX: TRANS [       ].

Across. Beyond. Between. TRANS [       ] bridges what once was discrete or disparate—even as it sets itself apart. Rather than merely breaking old, inflexible rules, TRANS [       ] inaugurates brand new ones, evincing an openness to fluidity and flux. TRANS [       ]  alerts us to those possibilities that exist on the other side, rendering what is knowable into an open field of our own making.

Submissions approaching this topic from a variety of perspectives, genres, and media, including sound and video, are welcome. For this issue, we are interested particularly in submissions produced by trans, genderqueer, non-binary, and two-spirit writers and artists—whether or not their work explores the experience of identifying as and being trans explicitly.

Visit for submission guidelines and information regarding our past issues. Please send submissions to by midnight November 30, 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact We look forward to reviewing your work!
