THEMA WRITING SUBMISSIONS

THEMA is a literary magazine that requests submissions every four months with target themes.  July 1, 2013 is the due date for short stories, essays, poems, photographs, and art that relate to Ten Minutes is a LONG time!

Requirements:  The premise must be an integral part of the plot, not necessarily the central theme but not merely incidental. They prefer fewer than 20 double-spaced pages. The website is themaliterarysocietydotcom. No readers fee and no e-mailed submissions.

Arleen Eagling, one of the members of my critique group and a member of the Dublin Polish Your Fiction class, had a story accepted for the newest issue with the theme, A Week and a Day. Her story is called “Half a Good Chance”. The outstanding cover illustration is by Suzanne Stuhaug.

California Writers Club Literary Review

My story “Fried Chicken Talks” is published in the 2013 issue of “The California Writers Club Literary Review”.  This publication is one of the perks of being in the club. The Review is delivered to all members, and we have the opportunity to enter our work every year. This time, editor David Lewis LaRoche said, “One-hundred fifty-two submissions were reviewed and graded, each by three different editors using common genre-specific criteria for making assessments. What you see is the best.”

I feel honored that my story was one of the twenty-seven selected.
