Journal Discovery: Memoir (and)

While poking around, I came across the journal Memoir (and) which looks pretty interesting, both reading-wise and submission-wise. I like the mission statement:

“Our mission is to publish traditional as well as nontraditional forms of nonfiction allied with memoir. This includes, but is not limited to, autobiography, diary, personal and critical essay, reportage, autobiographical fiction, alternative histories, “flash memoir,” narrative poetry or “poemoir” (it’s okay to groan, we did) and graphic memoir.”

And I found this statement in the submission section to be oddly comforting:

“No submission is too unusual or traditional to be considered for publication.”
