Hello GS fans! We have a lot going on right now:
Submissions open December 1st– what? Wait, what? That’s in less than 24 hours. OH MY! OH WOW! OH YAY!
Sunday, December 2nd, we have a StorySlam Contest/Fundraiser in NYC, benefitting the Ali Forney Center. Come one, come all! If you’d like to read, there may still be a slot open, so contact us ASAP. All finalists get a prize pack from The Museum of Sex and the grand prize winner gets $100. Score! There will also be raffles throughout the night so that everyone can be a winner. Ariel Sinclair, our advertised intermission act, unfortunately won’t be able to make it, but rest assured, this event is the best way to spend your post-brunch Sunday afternoon!
Our 4.1 issue is in the design process currently– we really can’t wait to get it off to the printer and onto your doorsteps. Have you ordered a subscription yet to assure to prompt arrival of our next issues? Pick one up for your favorite writer-friend as a holiday gift while you’re at it.
We’ve added three new pieces from past issues to our archives! Read Nathanael Green’s “Where the Authority Lies“, Michelle Cheever’s “Strange Places I Have Woken Up“, and Kimberly Grey’s “Saudade“. We also have provided a link to Ken Taylor’s “first the trees, now this“, which has been republished online on the site “And Other Poems”.
