Very excited to announce that my short story Somnus and the March Hare has been published by Spark: A Creative Anthology!
Spark‘s second issue has just been released and subs are open for three right now. Possibly my favourite thing about the journal is that it features such a wide range of poetry, fiction and artwork. It’s got variety and quality – what else do we want as readers?
Here’s what founder Brian Lewis has to say about Spark:
My goal was to establish a high-quality, paying market where emerging authors and poets can gain professional experience being published alongside respected instructors and older creative writing alumni who are now established authors. While Spark encourages submissions from alumni of the California State Summer School for the Arts, we are looking for quality writing and artwork from any source. We set the bar high in order to encourage young writers to continue to excel and develop their talents, and to maintain a publication to which established professionals are excited to submit.
I think this is a fantastic goal and really appreciate the opportunity that Brian, Spark (and all publications like Spark) offer writers. I’m also really excited, because the challenge of short fiction is pretty new to me and the support of Spark means a lot.
To get an idea of the contents, visit George Wells, whose fantastic story Patron Saint of the Lowlands also features in Spark or another of my critique partners, C.J. Jessop, who has a fantastic post on Issue I, where she interviews a lot of the writers – have a look right here.
