An icy day is the perfect time to announce that submissions are open to Sigma Tau's literary journal, Potpourri! Use your day off to dust off and edit some stories, poems, photos, essays, lyrics, and 2-D art so you can submit them to #Potpourri2017.
Since 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we hope to engage a bit with the ongoing recognitions by working under the aegis of a theme – “Form and Reform” – a binary of ideas that intersects both with the historical anniversary and with literary craft.
Do you have a poem or a story that directly addresses the idea of Reformation or anything related? Or, perhaps even more likely, do you have poems or stories that work with or against a particular sense of form? Whether you already have something at hand or not, how about in these first weeks, even months, of classes, you try to write something (or a dozen somethings), and see if somethings sticks? Also, Potpourri 2017 offers a particularly great opportunity for creative nonfiction. Lyrical or reflective essays on our theme, considered in diverse ways, would especially be of interest.
Submit up to three pieces of your stories, poems, essays, lyrics, music, and 2-D art! There is a 2,000 word limit per piece. Send submissions to cunesigmatau @gmail.com in Word document or rtf files--no PDFs please!Submissions are due March 14.
