If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the shot of confidence that comes from hearing your work will be published, you’ll want to know about the new regional publication launching from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Continuing Studies Department.
I received the following message about the launch–
Midwest Prairie Review, an anthology featuring the works of writers and artists tied to the unique environs of Wisconsin’s rolling hills and other Midwest prairies.
We are calling for submissions of thoughtful and thought-provoking written and visual art that interprets and redefines notions of living, working and writing within the Midwestern heartland.
Submission deadline is October 12, 2012. Genres that will be considered are fiction, creative nonfiction, scriptwriting, poetry, short stories and visual art (including photography).
The first volume of Midwest Prairie Review will be available at the 24th annual Writers’ Institute conference, scheduled for April 12-13, 2013.
Questions? Contact Laurie Scheer, managing editor of Midwest Prairie Review, at firstname.lastname@example.org 608-265-3972.
Me again. I’m really excited about this news. There’s something special about Wisconsin’s landscape; the roll of the land, its interplay of wildness and domestication, its people who heed the call to go back to the land or the call to join the creative ferment of our cities (and sometimes both at once). Let’s try to capture that something special on the page. Then…
Let’s flood Midwest Prairie Review with “true stories well told” by readers of this blog.
October 12. That’s your deadline. More submission guidelines here.
