End of March News


                                                              Issue 3

The Number 3 with Red BackgroundSubmissions for Issue 3 are open until May 1st, and we’re still looking for poetry, short fiction, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. Send us your best work! We’re especially interested in seeing more voices from the LGBTQ literary community, POC, and particularly WOC. We look forward to reading your submissions and will get back to you as soon as possible. (In this case, sooner rather than later since the issue goes live on June 1, 2018.)

                                                                        Check our submissions page for more info.


March Donation Round Up: nonprofits against gun violence

Sign reads "Cutting Gun Deaths in Half by 2025" and is ripped in half.
Brady Campaign Sign

As the end of March wraps up, we’ll also be tallying the donations all of our generous submitters have made to the Brady Center and other non-profits against gun violence, such as March for Our Lives. You have until March 31st to send us proof of donation with your submission. We’re matching up to $250, which hasn’t been met yet, so get on it! We’ll email each participant with a receipt of our donation in the beginning of April. If you couldn’t donate but still want to help, go here for 30 (free!) gun control actions you can take now: Take Action.


               Issue 4

The Number 4 with red backgroundAfter Issue 3, we’ll be taking a small break while we discuss the direction of Issue 4 and the possibility of a print anthology at the end of the year. Don’t worry; we’ll still be accepting submissions, and Issue 4 is still slated to drop in the fall. Our responses might take a little longer is all—closer to 12 weeks instead of the usual 2-4 week period.

That’s it for now, guys. As always, thank you for supporting our little swamp journal. Keep writing, keep submitting, and keep being kind.
