Our February issue is officially full. Those of you that have submitted and haven’t got a response will be considered for the April issue. Some of the contributors for Issue One will be included in the “best of” print in June. We’ll be contacting those poets as formatting for the February online issue progresses. We’re also looking for photos/artwork with an “emerge” theme for the February and April online issues. So, if you got something, send it over. Would love to break up some beautiful writing with beautiful artwork!
We’ve been really successful over the past few weeks. We are up to 8 contributors with a total of 23 poems between them! There’s still time to be a part of the inaugural issue of Emerge Literary Journal. Submissions are open until January 15th for the inaugural issue. All other submissions will be considered for our April electronic publication. As always, and poem accepted for publication is eligible for selection in our June print journal. Step right up and check us out. So many new voices ready to be heard. It’s so exciting!
It has been an exciting time here at Emerge Literary Journal! Our recent call for submissions with NewPages has been very successful, and the submissions keep rolling in.
