Calls for submissions

I wanted to take a moment and post some information regarding some journals looking for submissions.

First, a local journal, Word Fountain, edited by my friend Rachael Goetzke, is currently seeking submissions for its spring/summer, music-themed issue.  If you are interested in submitting, here is the contact info:

This is a music-themed issue, any genre, 1,000 words or less. Can be emailed to: or sent to:

Word Fountain Staff
c/o Osterhout Free Library
71 S. Franklin Street
Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701

Word Fountain is also run out of Wilkes-Barre’s Osterhout Free Library, and it has a print edition and an online edition.

In addition, I have been asked to serve as a first-round editor for a new journal starting entitled East Meets West, American Writers Review.  Right now, we are working on the guidelines for submissions, but we are hoping to take submissions from mid-April-mid-June.

When I have more info about the guidelines/submissions, I will post them here.

Now, I need to get back to writing an article for another blog regarding National Poetry Month.

Happy writing/reading!

  1. Dear Brian,

    Thanks. This is great! I look forward to your reading with Dawn on the 2nd there as well!

  2. I’m looking forward to the reading with Dawn, too, and I’m especially excited about the Bouncing Souls!
    This will probably be the 7th or 8th time I’ve seen them, and I always love them live.

  3. Just sent in one of my pieces for Word Fountain. Thanks for the heads up.
