Call for Submissions for POOL Issue No. 7: Float

To float is to be still. To float is to displace. To float is to decontextualize. To float is to voyage. To float is to survive. To float is to escape. To float is to relinquish a desire. To float is to exist apart from, to be outside of. To float is to venture the possibility of a thought. To float is to suspend disbelief. To float toes the line between desire and necessity.

The 2021-2022 Editorial Team is pleased to announce the call for submissions for POOL Issue No. 7: Float.

By engaging with the conditions in which we float, sink, and continually re-emerge to the surface for air, POOL invites you to imagine a future that necessitates different modes of being, living, thinking, and interacting with ourselves and each other. A future that dwells in the displacement, flows, and unbounded intimacies of life and matter that unmoor us from stable foundations and solid ground into which we plant ourselves.

For more details, please see the attached complete call, or visit us online at

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.
