Our call for mss for WordCity Literary Journal’s January 2022 issue comes from our consulting editor, Lori Roadhouse!
WRITE TOWARDS THE LIGHT
“But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?” – William Shakespeare
In the northern hemisphere, we are in the darkest days, the longest nights, of the year. How do you find inspiration and hope in the gloom? Does your writing take on a darker tone in these cold months? After the winter solstice, the days begin to brighten, a minute or two more light each day. Does your mood lighten too?
In this issue we are asking you to write towards the light. Show us hope from the shadows, show us inspiration as the days lengthen.
We leave this wide open to creative interpretation. Please see our Submission Guidelines for specific requirements.
