New Resources and New Markets for Writers

There are good things brewing, literarily speaking, in Logansport, Louisiana.

The Cahaba River Literary Journal is now under new ownership. They publish prose between 1,000-2,000 words and poetry up to thirty lines. It’s only $35 a year to subscribe (six issues), and now through June 1, every subscriber gets a free edit or critique of one manuscript with each subscription!

(For the mathematically challenged, that means you get a free critique plus a year-long subscription for less than it would cost to receive a standard critique!)

To subscribe to Cahaba River Literary Journal and claim your free critique, click here.

For more informationa about their submission policy, click here. They’re open for submissions year ’round.

Owens Publishing Group also has two new titles coming out this year.

The first issue of Writer’s Bi-Monthly Review is scheduled to drop on June 1. Published twice a month, every issue will offer articles on writing, other writing news, and a writing contest. Like a “beacon in the dark,” Writer’s Bi-Monthly Review is “dedicated to helping creative writers learn to be better writers and learn the ropes of becoming published authors. [The] magazine will inspire, motivate, and encourage writers from page one to the very end.”

$25 gets you twelve issues; as with Cahaba River Literary Journal, every subscription gets a free manuscript critique.

Finally, Mothering with Imagination is a new publication for “mothers/parents of all ages.” The first issue drops in May.

They too are looking for writers of advice pieces and creative ideas from mothers who have “been there, done that.”

Topics may include shopping, eating, food kids like, schooling, discipline – and more. We are looking for literary pieces that focus on raising children creatively. We need humor stories, heart warming and touching pieces about loosing a child or raising a handicapped child.

They’ll also publish one short story a month, book reviews, and a poem up to 35 lines.

Subscriptions are a reasonable $25 a year for six issues.
