Today we are happy to share a reminder about the upcoming submission deadline for the Tempe Community Writing Contest.
Monday, February 19, 2018 is the last day to submit. Now is the time to make sure your final edits are in and to submit if you plan to participate.
The contest is open to Tempe residents, Tempe Public Library cardholders, high school students and ASU students. Winners will have their work published in the Tempe Writers Forum v. 4.
For more details on the contest you can visit the prior write up on the blog, “#ArtLitPhx: Tempe Community Writing and Cover Design Contest 2018″. Visit the Tempe Community Writing Contest’s page for full details and submission guidelines.
We are happy to share news that Iron City Magazine is currently accepting submissions for their third issue.
Iron City Magazine is, as put by Jessica Fletcher — former Superstition Review Intern and Iron City Magazine’s fiction editor — a “journal devoted entirely to writing and art from the prison world.” The journal publishes these works to help show that prisoners are not solely defined by their crimes, but are human also. Submissions are limited to current and former inmates, prison volunteers, and staff.
The submission deadline is April 15th, 2018.
Iron City Magazine can also be supported through donation here.
For greater detail about Iron City Magazine’s mission and submission guidelines visit the Iron City Magazine’s website.

Featured Partner: Berkeley Fiction Review
The Berkeley Fiction Review is one of several descendants of UC Berkeley’s Occident literary journal, which was published from 1881 to the 1960s. Established in 1981, it is now UC Berkeley’s oldest prose journal. We strive to publish short fiction that challenges the concept of the short story through unique prose, curious concepts, and engrossing narratives. We’d love for you to be a part of our literary tradition. Send your creative works to firstname.lastname@example.org!
“When you read a short story, you come out a little more aware and a little more in love with the world around you.” – George Saunders
Featured Partner: North American Review
Submissions are open for the North American Review‘s third annual Torch Memorial Prize for Creative Nonfiction. First Prize: $500. You may submit only one piece of creative nonfiction, no longer than 30 pages in a Word document. All contact information should be entered in your cover letter. No names or addresses should appear on manuscripts, please. All submissions will be read blind. Deadline: April 1, 2017
Featured Partner: Witness
The new issue of Witness is about chaos, which very old references describe as a void, an absence, a state before creation. But more recent scientific use implies that randomness and disorder would make sense if we could just get a vast enough perspective.
We’ve strived toward that goal with new fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, in print and online at WitnessMag.org.
From life-changing events that take place in the womb to unexpected shifts at the end of a life, these pieces contemplate the control we work to exert or the lack of control that we endure within individual lives.
