Winter 2021—Publication and Submission Deadline Extension

We will be pushing back the publication date of our Winter 2021 issue from December 10th to late January/early February. 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 Winter 2021 issue will now remain open until December 10th.

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!
