The upcoming cool months of autumn are a time of change and celebration. The leaves are turning from green to gold, Jack Frost comes to visit, and pumpkins ripen on their vines. Let the autumn season’s shifting colors inspire you! Yes, after months of anticipation Artful Dodge is eager to “leaf through” your work.
October 1st –December 1st we will be accepting poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, art, and translation on Submittable. While we are thrilled with everything you send us, please be patient and give us six months before you inquire about the status of your submission. We have a small staff of editors and want to give every piece our careful attention. We are in fact still working through our current backlog of submissions, and hope to get decisions back to those writers soon.
So, before the snow begins to fall, we hope you’ll send us your stories, your poems, your essays!
But that’s not all. The unveiling of our new issue, Artful Dodge 54/55, will take place November 30th at Lakeland Literary Festival, at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio! Our new issue, among other voices, includes interviews with and new poems by Khaled Mattawa and Marge Piercy.
