Submission Opportunity and Open Mic - Mid Rivers Review

Today's forecast for St. Peters: Partly cloudy, high 30 degrees, with a chance of flurries tonight.

This submission opportunity is a regional one, but one worth sharing.

The Mid Rivers Review is the literary journal of St. Charles Community College and is published annually by the English Department. The journal contains poetry, prose, and artwork contributed by students, staff, faculty, and area residents.

Three of my short stories have appeared in previous years' issues, and the English Department did an excellent job editing and publishing each one. It was a very exciting feeling when I received my two complimentary copies in the mail.

The next deadline for submissions is January 31. Their submission guidelines are fairly specific, so visit their website and follow the guidelines carefully.

Here's the link.

While you're visiting the website, you'll notice their Coffeehouse announcement. If you're in the metro-St. Louis or St. Charles area, I recommend attending one of these. They're done in an open-mic format where writers can share their original poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction, skits or song lyrics with an appreciative audience. Microphone time limited to 7 minutes. Complimentary refreshments served.

Here's the Coffeehouse schedule posted on the website for early 2009. Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009 and Friday, April 3, 2009. The events are held in the Social Sciences Building Auditorium. For more information, call 636-922-8407. Before you go, call the number on the website in case there's a change.
