Summer 2021—Publication and Submission Deadline Extension

Due to unprecedented workloads, obligations, and other complications, we will be pushing back the publication date of our Summer 2021 issue from May 10th to July 10th. Since we are asking for more time to share your writing and art with the world, we will also give everyone more time to send in submissions. Submissions for our Summer 2021 issue will now remain open until May 10th.

An announcement regarding adjusted timeframes for our Winter 2021 issue’s submission period will be made at a later date.

Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding. This is a lot of work for a two person team and we appreciate your support more than words could ever describe.

Keep writing and creating art. We look forward to seeing your submissions!
