An invitation from WordCity Monthly’s Editorial Board
We’re planning to publish two special holiday issues, one in December and the next in April, to celebrate world religions. Christmas and Hanukah are first on the calendar, and we welcome poetry, fiction, flash fiction, essays, memoir and book reviews that pull on the threads of both religion and/or culture and traditions surrounding this time of year. Submissions need not be religious in theme, but must relate to fall and winter holidays. Writers and poets are welcome to submit a related recipe.
In addition to Hanukah and Christmas, we especially also welcome writers of Pagan faith, their cultures and traditions, along with any others celebrating or noting holy days that take place in or near winter.
We’ll put out a call closer to April, asking for work and reflections on the month of Ramadan, as well as the culture and traditions of holy days/months that take place in the spring and summer. We very much look forward to this issue, as well!
Our submission guidelines may be found here: https://miombopublishing.org/wordcity-monthly/ Please submit by mid-November for consideration.
