Happy 2016!

Felicitations, dear reader!

There’s always something happening at Glass Mountain Magazine and, as 2015 draws to a close, we wanted to get you all updated on a few things.

First of all, our Poetry and Prose Contest is still going on. If you’re planning on submitting, you have until January 9th, so make those final edits and get those fiction, nonfiction, and poetry pieces in! If you’ve already submitted some work, thank you! We’ll be contacting and announcing the winners some time in February.

Secondly, we wanted to throw in a reminder that our next issue, Volume 16, will be themed. (Issues of Volume 15 are out now and available to order here.) We are looking for work – poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, reviews – that pertains in some way to the idea of growth. As we mentioned previously, this theme can be interpreted as loosely or literally as you choose. We’re just excited to see what you come up with!

Finally, another year brings another Boldface Writer’s Conference. Hurrah! Early bird registration will open tomorrow, January 1st. The lowest price on registration ($100, our special price at the launch party) has unfortunately passed, but you can still save money on your entry to this one-of-a-kind writing conference the earlier you get it. The registration rates will change as follows:

January 1 – March 23: $195 for students, $295 for community
March 24 – May 15: $295 for students, $395 for community
May 16 – day of conference: $395 for students, $495 for community

So get those registrations in ASAP! Quick tip, if you have any friends or family who are aspiring writers and you still haven’t gotten them a present, a Boldface registration would be well-received. Get more information on the conference here. We’re looking forward to a great turnout at the 2016 conference.

As always, thank you for your support. Keep checking back here for more events and updates.

Have a happy 2016!
