C. J. Laity of ChicagoPoetry.com is doing another anthology: JOMP 19: Poetry of Protest. Here are the details. Deadline is 2/28/16.
Measure, Cleave, Silver — these are the three elements needed in your submissions to be considered for the Spring issue (#10) of 3Elements Review. Submission guidelines are here.
Poetry has an open submission period; details on how to submit to it are here.
Polish those short stories now. Don’t let the deadline for the Chicago Tribune’s Nelson Algren Literary Award contest sneak up on you. Deadline is February 1. The details are here.
Now for news on contributors to Solace in So Many Words, Ellen Bass has a poem “Taking My Old Dog Out To Pee Before Bed” in the most recent issue of The Sun.
Congrats to Wally Swist. His chapbook Things I Know I Love: Odes to Food came out earlier this year from Finishing Line Press. Now the press has nominated a poem from that chapbook “A Holiday Menu: Respite and Cheer,” for a Pushcart Prize. Fingers crossed, Wally.
Write on, my friends. And submit too.
Peace, love, and solace
P.S. Don’t forget Solace in So Many Words makes a great gift.
