Calling for Fall Submissions

  Deadline: Sept 15, 22


I am searching for autumn word painters—writers who can calm someone with words, writers who can soak the reader’s mind with tranquil thoughts. More than any other season, autumn colours instil quietness. 

Check out http://www.words-to-use.com/words/fall/ for a helpful website with autumn keywords to get inspired. 

If you are up to the challenge, please submit poems, short stories, haiku, essays, studies, favourite autumn recipes, or any other form. It can relate to autumn or peaceful concepts. 

I look forward to the colourful calm.

Perspectives is Returning!

Good news! I am resurrecting my first love and publication: Perspectives Magazine. The first issue was created in July 2006. This magazine was dedicated to inanimate objects having their say, describing their environment. I will provide a link when the guidelines are ready.

Calling for Cool Wintry Submissions

 



The winter issue (24) is online

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 looking forward to publishing this magical issue.

The deadline is Dec 10, 2021
