I’ve mentioned Spry Literary JournalÂ briefly on the blog (in my monthly updates or goals’ posts), but I really haven’t explained what it is or my involvement in it.
Well folks, earlier in 2012, my colleague Linsey and I decided that we wanted to create a literary journal once we completed our graduate program. She and I were both readers and editors for Mason’s Road Literary and Arts JournalÂ and have a strong appreciation for good,Â conciseÂ writing. We also have both studied experimental and cross-genre writing, and in our critical projects for graduate school, we studied writing in the short form.
We envision Spry as an onlineÂ literary journal that features undiscovered and established writers’ concise, experimental, hybrid, modern, vintage or just plain vulnerable writing. We see this as a place for people who excel at taking risks, who thrive under pressure – for people whose words and rhythms areÂ spry.
The inaugural issue of Spry is set to be published in December 2012. We are currently accepting submissions of poetry, nonfiction, fiction and flash literature. We read work blindly and accept simultaneous submissions. The full guidelines can be read at our submissions manager.
Please consider submitting your writing. Email email@example.comÂ with any questions. Follow us on Twitter @sprylit
That’s awesome!! Good luck putting together your first issue! I’m sure it will be the first of many 🙂
Thank you so much! Please spread the word if you know anyone who is a writer.
I’m a writer and I’m interested!
