There is less than one week to submit your manuscript to Publishing Genius’s 2014 reading period. There have been lots of great writers submitting lots of great manuscripts. As of right now, we are only committed to one book in 2015, so I’m looking forward to finding some great works of poetry and fiction in the “slush pile.”
"Slush pile" is a terrible word and publishers should never use it.
I’m looking forward to finding some great works of poetry and fiction in the Genius File. (Okay, not that either. Or maybe.)
In July, you will be able to submit chapbooks for the Chris Toll Prize.
Good news — two stories from Everyday Genius made their way onto Wigleaf’s Top 50. Check ‘em out:
Check out the whole list here! There are lots of great writers and journals listed. Thanks to Wigleaf, and the contest editors Erin Fitzgerald and Ben Loory.
Chris Toll emailed me after he read with what he called professors. He was frustrated.
memo to the universe: poems are NOT words and line breaks. their poems were “about” lightning - if i may toot my own horn for a moment, my poems “are” lightning. i can say no more! when you’re a writer, it is good to be humble and focus on the work.
We are going to announce submissions for the second Chris Toll Prize soon.
