Dear Fellow Spooksters,
First of all, I would like to thank you all so much for supporting us as we venture forth as a literary journal into uncharted waters. It means the world and the moon to us that you have supported our contributors, our work, and most importantly, our mission to bring tales of otherness to the forefront. We were blessed to publish some first time writers and artists and share that work with the world and that is a type of gift that we are eternally grateful to have been able to share with you all.
As we move into January 2017 and as we reflect on the tiring time that was and still is 2016, we are pleased to announce that we are opening our doors for submissions in a range of categories: Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Comics (Memoir/Personal). Like last year, we will also be hosting two contests for our artists: a Cover Art Contest (strictly for Boston Artists) and also a Short Story Contest. This issue’s short story contest will be of the theme: BENEATH THE CITY. We are most excited for this category as we are looking forward to hearing what tales you weave that dissects, examines, and exclaims what happens in and hidden from the mainstream culture. What beats in the heart and beneath the heart of the city? What rises up? What falls? All submissions will be open this year from January 1st, 2017 until May. We can’t wait to read what you send to us.
It is important now more than ever that we persist to tell our tales and share our shadows. It is important more so now than it was before to find the shadows that are covering other people’s experiences and to shed light onto them. Share the work with us and work to share with us. We are what we do and the stories we choose to tell.
