We at The Reverie Journal are trying to create a community where we help each other. Each week, we give you a prompt for writing, we try to highlight one of you (if you’d like to be in the spotlight on Wednesday learn more here) and on Thursdays we post a publishing opportunity. Of course, we’d like for you to publish with us, but as poets we realize that publishing can be a tough part of this journey. We try to help with the burden.
In this week’s publishing opportunity we have Hunger Mountain, which is out of the Vermont College of Fine Arts. They accept high quality work from unknown, emerging or successful poets. No genre fiction, drama, or academic articles.
Our mission is to cultivate engagement with and conversation about the arts by publishing high-quality, innovative literary and visual art by both established and emerging artists, and by offering opportunities for interactivity and discourse.
Every month I interview an indie author for my PenPaperPad Talks Books segment on my YouTube channel. This week, I interviewed Laura A. Lord, one of our esteemed editors. We discuss her poetry, self-esteem, and The Reverie Journal and our submissions.
One thing we didn’t mention in this interview that we’ve been talking about recently is the possibility of accepting spoken word pieces for our “Write for Us” and our Anthology submissions. With each year, we’d like to stretch ourselves. Push ourselves into trying something new. That’s the new addition to our 2016 submission process. We haven’t finalized the exact type of files that will work best for us, but when we do, we’ll update the submission page according.
Here we are in all of our awkward glory. If you have any questions or comments, definitely leave them down in the comments. I’ll meet you there!
*Next week, things will be to our normal schedule. Thanks for your patience.*
The key to getting published is at once simple and painful…You have to put yourself out there. Keep submitting your work and sharing it with the world. Remember that you can always submit to our Write for Us segment and that our magazine submissions are now open for the year.
Big Pulp “defines pulp-fiction very broadly: it’s lively, challenging, thought-provoking, thrilling, and fun…” They are looking more for character and story elements than genre specific themes.
The Spring tends to be the height of submissions season. It is a time to polish up those pieces and figure out exactly where you should send them for potential publication. While we hope you’ll consider us, we want to share other opportunities as well.
Hotel Amerika will be accepting submissions until May 1st! They are looking for exceptional poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.
Some of the publishing opportunities we share with you are very specialized magazines and journals. This one is a very interesting look at poetry that makes me think along the lines of micropoetry. Remember that you can always submit to our Write for Us segment and that our magazine submissions are now open for the year.
Hoot is a postcard review of mini poetry and prose. Every month they publish one piece of poetry with artwork on a postcard. They look for surprising, brief, stand-on-its-own poetry.
