From our friends at Rose Metal Press:
AUGUST OPEN READING PERIOD
From August 1 through August 31, we will be having an open reading period for full-length hybrid and cross-genre manuscripts. We are interested in short short, flash, and micro-fiction; prose poetry; novels-in-verse or book-length linked narrative poems; flash nonfiction or book-length memoirs-in-shorts; fragmentary works and book-length lyric essays; image and text collaborations and other collaborative work; and other literary works that move beyond traditional genres to find new forms of expression. The best way to see what we mean by hybrid is to take a look at our catalog. We welcome submissions in all styles and on all subjects, and encourage a broad and expansive interpretation of hybridity. Surprise us with your innovation! Manuscripts selected from this reading period will be published by Rose Metal Press in 2019 and beyond.
Manuscripts should be 48 pages or longer…

For real, I've got two business pages and my author's page on Facebook. I'll be using those for promotions, advertising events, and just general expansion of my reach [...]

I'm beginning to think my Morning Pages routine has usurped my Blog in terms of where I go to process my life. Used to be I'd post my inner ramblings (edited of course) here whenever the words demanded release, or I needed to "think". Since entering the 8th month of daily Morning Pages, I've noticed [...]
