"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Daily Prompt Love <3 Honoring

13 November 2017

Today is my late husband’s birthday, and the anniversary of my baby brother walking on to the next life. So to celebrate them, today, I launched a new literary magazine, K’in. 

They filled my life with so much beauty and humor and wisdom and joy. It only seems right to honor them by creating something beautiful. 

Make art about honoring the dead.

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 HeartWood, General Submissions & Broadside Contest

HeartWood, a literary magazine in association with the low-res MFA at West Virginia Wesleyan College, is accepting submissions for the October issue. Seeking poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.

Guidelines for journal here: http://www.heartwoodlitmag.com/submit/

HeartWood also hosts an annual broadside competition, open for reading now. 

A writing practice requires us to slow down, reflect, attend. HeartWood Literary Magazine & West Virginia Wesleyan’s MFA Program seek to honor this practice with an annual broadside series and contest. Partnering with West Virginia letterpress company Base Camp Printing, we print the winning entry (poetry or flash prose) on a limited-edition letterpress broadside featuring an original image inspired by the text. The annual broadside serves as artifact companion to the fall issue of the digital magazine. Both the handmade and the electronic HeartWood venues aim to showcase work that gets to the heart of the matter.

2017 Contest Judge: MAGGIE ANDERSON is the author of five books of poems most recently Dear All, (Four Way Books, 2017) and five edited or co-edited volumes of poetry. She was the founding director of the Wick Poetry Center and founder and editor of the Wick Poetry Series of the Kent State University Press. Anderson was also the Director of the Northeast Ohio MFA in creative writing from 2006-2009 and is the recipient of two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts as well as grants from the Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania Councils on the Arts. Maggie Anderson is Professor Emerita in English of Kent State University and currently lives in Asheville, NC.

  • $15 entry fee (includes a mailed copy of the winning broadside)
  • Contest opens April 1, 2017. The submission deadline for the prize is midnight June 1, 2017.
  • Submit one poem (of any form) or flash prose piece (fiction or nonfiction) per entry; regardless of genre, the entry must be 200 words or less. There is no limit on the number of entries per person.
  • $500 cash prize + 25 copies of limited-edition letterpress broadside will be awarded to the winner.
  • All entries will also be considered for publication in HeartWood
