Whether you are new to Crow River Ink or you have been lurking in the shadows for some time, I am happy to announce that the Fall Submission period opens on September 22, 2017. (The Fall Equinox!)
During these last few months of inactivity, I have been brainstorming ideas on how to reach a larger audience for this publication website. My love for local Midwest/Minnesota writing and media arts has only grown in these few months. Thus, I am excited to explore the ideas and visions of those around me through their submissions.
Now, I’d like to address some questions that are long overdue for answers:
- Why has Crow River Ink been inactive?
There are a few reasons, the most prominent being that there was a lack of submissions for the first launch. I also realized I was not reaching a wide enough audience and thus began to brainstorm ideas on how to further my reach. I know there are a lot of amazing and undiscovered writers and artists that are looking to be published.
- Where were you?
After launching Crow River Ink in April, life started to catch up with me. I graduated, moved, got engaged, and brought home a new puppy. The summer was a whirlwind, but just as the leaves settle in the Autumn – my life is doing the same. So, here I am as a one-woman operation, ready to take on this project with full force.
- What is next?
Submission! Publications! Beautiful works of literature and media! If all goes well, an online literary and arts journal! But, for all of this to happen, I need your help. I need people to submit and share their creations. Together, let’s make something beautiful.
Remember, you can send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
