Willawaw Journal Fall 2018–Submissions Deadline: September 1
I hope you will be inspired by Washington Poet Laureate Samuel Greene’s Grandmother, Cleaning Rabbits. Find more about the poet laureate, his Poem Prompt, and the editors’response here.
In addition to Samuel Green’s poem, I am inviting potential contributors to address, in a poem or artwork, the author with whom they would most like to have a conversation.
You know how a book can live with you for years? Maybe a character talks to you in your head off and on? Well, take this opportunity to talk back!
Share the impact of the author’s work or the character’s psyche on how you think, write, and move in the world. (As always, feel free to subvert the prompt.)
Regular submissions are always welcome! There are NO READING FEES.
How to Submit?
