Outlook Springs is offering women an opportunity to cut the submissions line and submit directly to an editor, Emily. She describes her reasons in the website linked above: a deluge of male submissions and wanting women to be heard and valued. You still need to follow guidelines.

The call is for poems, fiction and non-fiction. When you get to the website, towards the bottom of the post you can click on the hyperlink “Submissions Guidelines”. They state they enjoy, and seek,  submissions  with “the strange”, “humor”, and “heartbreak”.

So that is what we are doing: Between January 4th and January 20th, women writers can submit their work to Outlook Springs and get it directly to an editor’s inbox. Email your fiction, non-fiction, or poetry submissions directly to me at EmilyInOutlookSprings@gmail.com between January 4th and 20th to qualify.

Some things Don’t Change

Mark Twain wrote:

“The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterday’s bear date with the moderate antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combined.”
