call for submissions from writers in Oklahoma
- Oklahoma Writing @ Sugar Mule Call for Submissions
Announcing a Special Issue of Sugar Mule
Writing Oklahoma into the 21st Century
We invite all writers currently living in Oklahoma to submit to this
special issue of Sugar Mule; all genres are solicited. Only writers who
are current residents of Oklahoma may submit. While the editor does not
require that Oklahoma is topic or theme of the writing (the editor
wishes to encourage experimental submissions), she will admit to a bias
for stories, poems, and essays that capture the near-ineffable oddness
and beauty and pain of living in the State. All work submitted will be
considered for the Sugar Mule Oklahoma Special Edition (February 2009);
Mongrel Empire Press, in partnership with Sugar Mule, is also planning
an expanded, print edition and all submissions will be considered for
the print edition as well.
three to five poems (no more than 15 pages)
