Irreantum: Come Make Ripples in the "Many Waters"

For any in my abundant readership interested in publishing some poetry, here's your chance. Angela Hallstrom, co-editor of Irreantum recently posted this call for submissions on the Association for Mormon Letters (AML) online forum (link to it here):

I’m in the process of putting together the November issue of Irreantum. We have a lot of great stuff ready to go, but this issue needs more poetry and possibly one more critical essay. If you or anyone you know might be interested in submitting, please visit http://www.mormonletters.org/irreantum/submissions.html for guidelines and send us your work. (Of course, you can also submit fiction and creative nonfiction, but it will be considered for later issues.) All poetry and critical essay submissions must be received by July 15 in order to be considered for the November issue.

We also need a few more proofreaders. For those of you who would like to get some solid editing experience on your resume, Irreantum is a great place to start. Elizabeth Petty Bentley heads up our team of proofreaders and does an excellent job. If you’re interested in being a part of that team, please email us at irreantum@mormonletters.org . A short message detailing any experience you’ve had in editing, publishing, and/or writing would be very helpful.

Thank you!
Angela Hallstrom
co-editor, Irreantum

I'll be submitting some of my poetry and I'm hopeful that I can at least get a few more poems published.

Hope to "see" you there!
