The Submissions window for Hidden Timber Books’ anthology on Family Narratives has closed, and boy-oh-boy are you in for some excellent reading when this book hits the shelves. But while one door closes, several remain open. This month’s roundup lists three places where Literary folk, near and far, are waiting to read your work. Get clicking!
A Picture and a Thousand Words: Ten Writers on Ten Photos
This is a call for a local (Milwaukee) event where chosen writers will read their pieces at The Sugar Maple in Bay View, WI.
Writers are often inspired by other arts, including photos. From the photo album on this page, choose the photo (or photos) that inspire you, for any reason at all, and write a thousand words. Your piece can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, in other words any style, any genre. You are invited to write inside, outside, or all around the box!
You don’t have to be from Milwaukee in order to enter your submission, but you must be available to read in town on November 10th. And we’re a pretty great place to visit. Check out the Picture and a Thousand Words Facebook Page for guidelines and photos. Deadline to submit is October 1, 2016!

“We’d Like to Make a Request….”
Hippocampus Magazine Press is now seeking essays inspired by radio for a forthcoming anthology entitled Air.
We’re looking for behind-the-scene stories about small town radio stations. We’re seeking personal stories about die-hard radio fans. We want to hear from (current/former) jocks, from program directors, from engineers, from the sales team, from ancillary characters like record reps and concert promoters—tales from every corner of the radio station and from everyone radio ever reached.
Hippocampus regularly publishes essays in their online magazine, but this is a new and exciting venture, the first of many publications in print! Deadline to submit is February 15, 2017!

The window for this one is short, but as they are accepting unsolicited submissions and reading work from emerging as well as established writers, it may be worth the effort.
Tin House is currently accepting unsolicited submissions for our next THREE issues: Spring 2017 Rehab, Summer 2017 Open, non-themed, Fall 2017 True Crime. We consider each submission for all upcoming issues regardless of theme. If you wish to be considered for a particular theme, please make a note in your cover letter.
