Calling for Wintry Submissions





The winter issue will be online December 31. Stay tuned!

The following quotes express my sentiments about winter.

"As winter approaches - bringing cold weather and family drama - we crave page-turners, books made for long nights and tryptophan-induced sloth." ~Sarah MacLean

"I love the scents of winter! For me, it's all about the feeling you get when you smell pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and spruce." ~Taylor Swift

Winter is the year's finale. It's a time of books and page-turners, snowflakes and fireplaces, gifts and Christmas sentiments. Whether you submit poetry, haiku, fiction, nonfiction, or recipes, show me specifics. Fill the submission with the season's senses.

I am searching for autumn word painters—writers who can calm and quiet someone with words. Writers who can soak the reader’s mind with tranquil thoughts. More than any other season, autumn colors instill calmness.

Calling for spring submissions



Warm your mind up from the polar vortex that has frozen the world and think spring, warmth, new beginnings... Let the reader smell the freshness of an April rain or inhale the intoxicating scent of lilacs. Any form of poetry, short story, essay or first-person manuscript is acceptable. Spring-related or conceptual content is acceptable like new beginnings, growth, inspiration, birth/rebirth and so on. I'm always on the lookout for haiku, photography, or favorite recipes connected with the spring, too. I look forward to your budding submissions!
