BRW Invites VWC Members to Participate in Upcoming Publication
Blue Ridge Writers publishes a quarterly journal. This is our 4th year. As we are a small club, we scramble at times for submissions. Our editorial board discussed this and believes it appropriate to expand our publication so that other chapters and writers can use the publication as a tool to enhance membership. Most of you know me (John Nicolay), but our associate editor is taking the lead on facilitating submissions, corresponding wi9th authors. We want to build a publication for fresh voices. The title of the journal will shift to embrace a broader view of our intent. First things first.
Interested in being part of the birth? You'll be famous. Submit work to this email. Krysta is the associate editor. We plan to publish in early April. The deadline for Spring is March 15, 2022. Poetry up to six pieces, or six pages (depending on the number of submissions). Prose up to 3500 words in angle or multiple pieces. Include your name and chapter and mailing address in the title space of your submission. We may ask for authors to purchase their own copies, but this is a discussion we will have later. You may get another invitation from the organization coordinators.
Authors retain all rights. Journals are illustrated with author approval. We do this to avoid bleeding a few lines onto the last page leaving a too obvious mostly blank page. Poetry is not illustrated unless the poet would like this addition.
BRW has an editorial board of four. We are also planning the publication of a poetry collection this summer. We have considerable interest in this.
