Indiana Writers Center to Launch Flying Island Online Literary Journal
Breaking news from Barb Shoup, Executive Director of the Indiana Writers Center:
Every writer needs a place to start and, over the years, the Indiana Writers Center has provided that place to many writers, including myself, by offering classes taught by some of Indiana’s best writers, the opportunity for constructive criticism, and the camaraderie and support of fellow writers on the path. One of the pleasures of my job as director of the Center is discovering and nurturing talented writers of all ages and backgrounds, and I know that many of you feel the same way.
This fall the Indiana Writers Center will launch “Flying Island,” an online literary magazine to publish emerging Indiana writers. The magazine will have rolling submissions through September 2014 and, at the end of that time, the IWC will publish an anthology that includes the best of the year’s submissions. The publication will be celebrated with a public reading the evening before our annual Gathering of Writers.
In addition, each month the “Flying Island” will showcase the work of an accomplished Indiana writers…like you.
I’m hoping that you’ll let all your friends and fellow writers know about “Flying Island” and encourage the best of them to submit their work. Also that you might be willing to make a modest donation to help us fully fund this exciting initiative.
