Call for Submissions…Out of The Ordinary: Winter


Those of you who have been with us since before the change over to the new format will remember we used to put together Summer and Winter anthologies of poetry and flash fiction. (If you’re interested, these are free to read and can be found here). Although we don’t feel a return to the anthologies is possible at this time, we have decided to introduce special calls for submissions dedicated to the seasons for Whispers and Echoes.  Hence the “Out of The Ordinary” in the title above because the journal usually has no set theme.
