We’re featuring a prompt-based writing contest for Issue 2 of Midwestern Gothic (due date: May 13). Check out details here.
I’m excited to announce a new project I’ve been tinkering with for quite some time: Midwestern Gothic. Midwestern Gothic is a quarterly literary journal dedicated to featuring work about or inspired by the Midwest, by writers who live or have lived here. Midwestern Gothic aims to collect the very best in Midwestern fiction writing in a way that has never been done before, cataloging the oeuvre of an often-overlooked region of the United States ripe with its own mythologies and tall tales.
Whew, a mouthful. A teaser site is now up (here), and the full site should be up sometime in early January. I’ll have a call for submissions around that time, and I expect the first issue to print in March 2011.
If you have any questions, send me a message. More details to come.
