The fall brings many things: crisp air, sneezing, new presidents and turkey. It also ushers in new ideas, which is just what we want for our upcoming Fall issue of the journal.
In case you haven’t noticed the nifty new tab above labeled Submit & Contest, it’s that time of the year again. We’ve grown a little restless here at Glass Mountain, so we need some kind of pick-me-up. That’s where you come in. So, to kick off this fall season, Glass Mountain would like to announce its open call for submissions. From now until Thursday, November 22, the journal will be accepting submissions in fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, as well as artwork. We accept submissions in all standard formats. Those interested in submitting their work can do so using Submittable: glassmountain.submittable.com.
And if that’s not enough motivation, Glass Mountain will be sponsoring its First Annual Prose and Poetry Contest. The concept is fairly straightforward: submit your work by Tuesday, December 25, and if your entry is selected, you receive 250 big ones (American dolla, dollas). To enter the contest, just follow these easy steps:
1) Take some time to look into the mirror and ask yourself this question: Am I an undergraduate student? If you answer Yes, proceed to step 2.
2) Submit a work of prose (4,000 word limit) or 10 pages of poetry, along with a $5 entry fee.
3) Take a deep breath, cross your fingers, and don’t stress over that syntax error in your cover letter.
To those who take us up on these offers, we wish you the very best of luck.
