91st Meridian is an electronic publication of the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City (41° 38' N /91° 33' W). It appears intermittently, and aims to contribute to general reading beyond the (national, linguistic, cultural) borders of the Anglophone sphere.
We consider submissions of fiction, poetry, essays, non-fiction and book reviews as long as the material reflects, in some way, the world as a space of literary transit and translation.
Hind SHOUFANI, the co-writer and editor of the Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated short The Present, in which a Palestinian father and daughter try to cross Israeli checkpoints, speaks about the project here. On Netflix through April 2021.
