Big News: Our Experimental Year One Annual

Hey Everyone,

We’re in denial about summer coming to a close, so we’re postponing it! Or, at least we’re postponing the closing of our Annual submissions. We’re extending the deadline to our September Reading, Tuesday, September 8! If you didn’t get a packet yet, you still can. We’ll use our Facebook page to tell you what literary events you can catch us at to either pick up or submit your packet, so stay tuned. If you have any questions, or want to mail the packet instead, email us at writersandwords@gmail.com.

See you in September!
