Call for September Mss: 100 Thousand Poets (and writers) for Change

For our September issue, WordCity Literary Journal is joining the 100 Thousand Poets for Change movement, and seeking poetry, fiction, memoir, essays and book reviews that address change.

We hope to see writing that brings awareness of issues that require change, of changes that are already in progress, of initiatives and ideas for change.

The change you wish to address is entirely up to you, the writer, and may cover the intimacy of the family and home, to broader matters contained with institutions such as political or religious, or be global in scope.

Our deadline is August 21st, and our general guidelines can be found here.

Thank you, as always, for your interest in and support of WordCity Literary Journal.

With gratitude and anticipation,

Darcie Friesen Hossack (Managing Editor) and the editorial team

Darcie Friesen Hossack is a graduate of the Humber School for Writers. Her short story collection, Mennonites Don’t Dance, was a runner-up for the Danuta Gleed Award, shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize and the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading Evergreen Award for Adult Fiction. Citing irreverence, the book was banned by the LaCrete Public Library in Northern Alberta. Having mentored with Giller finalists Sandra Birdsell (The Russlander) and Gail Anderson Dargatz (Spawning Grounds, The Cure for Death by Lightening), Darcie's first novel, Stillwater, will be released in the spring of 2023. Darcie is also a four time judge of the Whistler Independent Book Awards, and a career food writer. She lives in Northern Alberta, Canada, with her husband, international award-winning chef, Dean Hossack.
