Call for submissions: NEW PLAINS REVIEW
The NEW PLAINS REVIEW seeks writing on the theme of “Service” for its spring 2009 issue. We invite you to interpret “service” broadly: military and community service, school service requirements, jury duty, all forms of volunteering, religious services, food service, customer service, serving a subpoena or tennis ball, etc. We’re interested in poetry, fiction, essays and creative nonfiction that is thoughtful and compelling, and we’ll reprint previously published work (provided the author owns the copyright). NEW PLAINS will also run a “letters” column of short, informal pieces relating experiences of “service.” The editors are looking for detail, honesty and brevity in these letters. Deadline is February 16, 2009.
Online Journal Seeks Current Events Poetry
THE NEW VERSE NEWS covers the news and public affairs with poems on issues, large and small, international and local. It relies on the submission of poems (especially those of a politically progressive bent) by writers from all over the world. The editors update the website every day or two with the best work received.
Graduate Student Spotlight Submissions Needed
The Honey Land Review, an online journal of poetry and photography, is now accepting submissions for its upcoming spring issue which will continue to include our Graduate Student Spotlight. This feature is dedicated to the poetry of current MA and MFA students and provides for the opportunity to showcase the many creative writing programs available to writers today. I'd ask that you please forward this announcement to your graduate poetry students and encourage them to submit their work to our spotlight. Submission guidelines and further information can be found at: http://www.thehoneylandreview.com
