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. Over the past 24 hours, we have added three new contributors and accepted four new poems for our inaugural issue, which is slated to electronically appear in February 2012. Please check out our Upcoming Contributors page and welcome our contributors. While your at it, check out our Submission Guidelines to see how you can become a contributor for our upcoming issue. The sample poem up at The Journal is a taste of what we’ve accepted and what we’re looking for.
