O-Dark-Thirty, the literary journal of The Veterans Writing Project, is pleased to call for submissions from women veterans who write for an upcoming (February 2016) themed issue of O-Dark-Thirty/The Review: Women Veterans’ Writing.
Guidelines: The editors will consider short stories (up to 5,000 words; 3,500 and under is better), creative nonfiction/essay (same word limit), poems, and short plays. Excerpts from memoirs and novels are acceptable if the excerpt stands alone as a story in its own right. Please limit submissions to one prose piece or a batch of up to three poems. Work is not required to be on a military theme!
Deadline: The submission deadline is October 31. Earlier is better. Please submit work through our online submissions manager.
I’m keeping a watch for interesting submissions from women veterans already, but it would help my aging eyes if you note in your cover letter that you’re submitting work to be considered for the 2016 themed issue.
If you’re a woman veteran and you write, I hope you’ll consider submitting work to us. I’ll be reading all the submissions for this issue personally, and I look forward to reading anything you send!
