We are pleased to bring you our small but mighty Issue 7!


03/28/2016

As we gear up for AWP in Los Angeles, we'd like to remind you all of a few things:

1) Our bookfair booth is space 1132. We'll be there with Blue Mesa Review & Orange Monkey Publishing, selling/giving away T-Shirts.

2) Our offsite reading is a collaboration with Cactus Heart Magazine and will feature Issue 6 contributors Peter Schuler, Matt Hart, and California Book Award winner, Isabel Quintero! We hope to see you Friday, April 1st, 7PM @ Barrel Down Beer Hall (Approx. 1 mile from the Convention Center).

3) The food in Boston, Seattle, and Minneapolis was trash compared to Los Angeles. #GetThatMexicanFood

It has come to our attention that a contributor from Issue 3 does not represent the vision of The Great American Lit Mag. Thus, this contributor's work has been retracted. We apologize to anyone who may have been negatively affected by our oversight.

AWP15 in Minneapolis was a success! We are excited to be back home and diving right back into submissions for our micro fiction contest!

Today's the day. Issue 1 appropriately launches on Halloween as it's filled with tricks and treats! See our "Current Issue" section to find it or click HERE. In addition to our launch, we are re-opening immediately for submissions toward Issue 2 starting now and running through the end of the year. Starting with Issue 2, we will also be accepting poetics essay submissions. Please visit our "Submissions" page to learn more.

Do not fret! Though we are officially closed for submissions during the month of October as we finalize and launch our inaugural issue, we will re-open in November for submissions toward our second issue. You can expect that to be the standard haymaker following the many sharp jabs of issue one!

 

09/22/2014

 

There is just over a week left to get those submissions in for our inaugural issue! Tell your friends! Tell your mom! (unless she's anything like DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince's mom because sometimes parents just don't understand)

It is nearly impossible to believe the incredible submissions we are receiving. Issue 1 is shaping up to be a doozy! The only thing missing is your work. Writers to expect in Issue 1 include: Grand Rapids Poet Laureate, L.S. Klatt and H_NGM_N founder and editor, Nate Pritts! Keep those submissions coming!
