BorderSenses is actively seeking submissions for Volume 15, a themed issue on double identity. We are seeking works in poetry, fiction, nonfiction and photography, in both Spanish and English languages. Translations, provided all rights and permissions have been granted, are also considered by our editors.

The chimera, a mythological fire-breathing animal composed of multiple parts, is said to have had the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. In human beings, the chimeric phenomenon manifests as a person with two genetically different types of cells. For this issue, we propose the chimera as a metaphor for the creature of the border, for which two different forms of blood can exist in one body.

BorderSenses would like to use the chimera as a metaphor for our next thematic issue, which seeks work that negotiates a duplicity of being. For more details, please visit
