Dearest DDR followers, readers, writers, and lovely creatures all around,
So it’s that time again. Time to take a break so we can get our sh*t together.
And though we won’t be publishing anything new on the site till the end of the summer we will still be reading submissions for fall so please, keep sending us all your goodies! Ladies send us your flash, poetry, art, photography… Send it all.
Also, on a super happy note, we are going to start accepting creative nonfiction! More on that shortly but to give you an idea the guidelines will be the same as flash fiction. Send us up to 3 creative nonfiction stories, each story no more than 1000 words.
We aren’t disappearing. We will be around reading all your fine submissions. And as always, previous contributors, let us know if you have anything going on. A book reading, a forthcoming chapbook, etc. We would love to share the news!
Happy writing & reading friends!
We are super excited to announce our nominations for this year’s Pushcart Prize! They are…
Congratulations to Joan and Carrie! Be sure to read their work by clicking on the links above!
In lieu of a poem, story or art this week, we want to give you a sneak peak of the Summer 2017 ebook cover! Featuring artwork by the talented Ashley Parker Owens.
The Summer 2017 edition will be coming out August 1, so stay tuned on how to snag yourself a copy.
Here we are. The year is coming to an end. And it has been a wonderful year for us, here at Dying Dahlia Review.
I am so grateful for you. All of you. The contributors, those who submitted work to us and of course, the readers.
To those who submitted and weren’t accepted, we know your work will find a perfect home. Don’t stop writing and don’t stop submitting. The world needs more writers. Probably more now than ever.
To those who contributed, we are honored to have showcased your work on our site and in the ebook. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey.
And to the readers, thank you for subscribing and following along to great work every week. Without you, there would be no reason to keep going.
We have big plans for 2017, so please, stay tuned. And keep those submissions coming. We are taking a break this month (December) from posting any work. If you haven’t heard already, we published our first ebook collection, the Winter 2017 edition of Dying Dahlia Review. Click here to find out how to get yourself a copy. We are really proud to be featuring such great work by some very talented ladies. We know you’ll like it. So buy a copy for yourself. And perhaps another one for a literary lover. 🙂
So from all of us here at Dying Dahlia Review, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a very happy New Year. Please join us next year as we continue to grow and feature great work by women writers and artists.
Hello dearest readers!
We are back after our month long vacation AKA drinking pumpkin spice lattes while eating pumpkin spice bread with a scoop of pumpkin spice ice cream and shopping for pumpkin decorations while wearing pumpkin themed shirts.
Just kidding. Kind of. Continue reading “A Note from the Editor”
