"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

Summer 2018 Workshop at The Porches! Writing (Extra)Ordinary Grace

Writing (Extra)Ordinary Grace

August 10-12, 2018

at the fabulous Porches Writers Retreat

Poetry, for me, is one of the ways I pray. But cooking, sewing, gardening, walking my dogs, teaching–these too are all, for me, ways of praying. I learned to recognize and honor Grace in the Everyday from my mama, and this workshop would focus on writing into the Grace in those beautiful, too-often-unrecognized, ordinary moments filling all of our days. Prompts will explore observation & recognition of those personal moments of Grace, using imagery and sensory work to surround & articulate them, capturing the awe & emotional veracity, the role of specificity, subtext and surface narrative,as means to create universality, all in celebration of Ordinary Grace.

$275 for the weekend, includes full weekend’s workshop, tons of prompts and exercises to energize your writing in exciting new ways, take-home printed materials, supper Friday night, light breakfast food for Sat and Sun, and private room lodging.

Please be mindful that last minute cancellations result in empty rooms and lost opportunity for our gracious hostess, herself a writer making her creative and fiscal way through the world. Any cancellation twenty-one days or less before the workshop will require payment in full.

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 Barking Sycamores

Barking Sycamores

Seeking Submissions on the theme of The Undiscovered Country  

Deadline: January 31, 2018.

From their website:

“Barking Sycamores is a literary journal entirely edited and operated by queer, neurodivergent people of color. We seek poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction,hybrid genre works (8,500 words or less), and art by neurodivergent writers and artists for our Issue 16. SUBMISSION PERIOD: December 1, 2017 – January 31, 2018.

Our theme for Issue 16 is “The Undiscovered Country.” We took our inspiration from the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, but you might also remember that the phrase “the undiscovered country” appears in Shakespeare’s Hamlet as the title character speaks of death: “from whose bourn no traveler returns.”

So, don’t limit yourselves to works that depict space exploration. We’re looking for creative pieces that explore themes of venturing into unknown lands, new ways of thinking, new interpersonal relationships, building new civilizations and cultures…you get the idea. We’re especially interested in works about journeys from which one does not expect to return unchanged, if one returns at all. We invite contributors to submit work that fits the theme as broadly or as narrowly as desired.

We also seek essays on the impact of neurodivergence on the creation of literary works (8,500 words or less) and book reviews (1,000 words or less).

The philosophy of our journal is unique, so we ask that interested creatives consult our submission guidelines before sending any work to us. Our guidelines are available on our Submittable page and on our general guidelines page.”
