May 2023

  • Welcome to our new website.
  • The Spring 2023 Edition is hot off the press and available on Amazon. On May 2, 2023, we mailed the contributors with a USPS address their copies.  It takes at least two weeks (sometimes three) because it’s a bulk mail and book rate through USPS. International contributors, please see our guidelines.
  • There are currently no open calls or contests open. All of our contests closed May 1. Over the summer, we will continue reading works submitted before May 1; if your work is labeled as In progress in Submittable, please know that it might take us until August to finish those. We received far more submissions in every genre this spring than we have ever received.
  • The Open Calls for fiction & nonfiction will re-open August 1.
  • The Joy Bale Boone Poetry Prize will re-open August 1, 2023.
  • We are out of the office and will return August 1, but we will check email periodically.
