Need Some Fresh Air? “The Great Outdoors” Issue is Live!

Ready for Love Gone Awry? Our latest issue is live!

Ready for Love Gone Awry? Our latest issue is live!

Although we yearn for the perfect romantic relationships, sometimes we’re left disappointed. Most of us have faced romantic disillusionment at some point in our lives, and in this latest issue of Montana Mouthful, some very talented writers, artists, and poets give us their takes on “Romance Gone Wrong.”

We’d like to thank our contributors for sharing these compelling variations on love gone awry. Some of the included pieces are sad, some are funny, some are downright frightening, but all of them are beautifully executed. We encourage you to check out the Biography pages to learn more about the individuals who contributed to this issue.

We’re also pleased to announce two new items. The first is a new feature called “Editors’ Enclosure,” a space where one of the editors may share a story, poem, or artwork. In this issue, Jasmine Swaney Lamb contributes a nonfiction piece about romance gone wrong with parts of herself.

Secondly, at the end of the issue, you’ll notice a page with some advertising information. If you’d like to include an ad in an upcoming issue, please read that page and get in touch with us.

Without further ado, here is the link to Our Current Issue web page where you’ll find a link to read the issue for free online, and a link where you may purchase digital and print-on-demand copies.

Thanks again to our contributors and thank you to all of our readers. Your continued support means so much to us!

We hope you enjoy this latest issue!

Hello Montana Mouthful community! In Helena, we’re welcoming warm weather after a rather cool spring, but behind the scenes, things have been heating up since we received our 501(c)3 nonprofit status. We’ve been pulling together ideas for fundraisers, events, and workshops, so we can continue […]

Call for Submissions for our “Schooling” Issue

Call for Submissions for our “Schooling” Issue

Classes might be out for summer, but Montana Mouthful is open for submissions for our fifth issue, and the theme is “schooling” (or some variation on “school”). Of course, with such a theme, we expect to receive stories, poems, and images about formal education, ranging from elementary school to the post graduate level. However, some of the best “schooling” is dished out in circumstances far removed from the classroom. Perhaps you were “schooled” by a job, a best friend, or any number of unexpected situations. Let your imagination run wild. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Submissions are open from June 16, 2019 – August 12, 2019. We aim to publish the “Schooling” Issue on September 23, 2019, when the majority of folks are in “back to school” mode. Please review our submission guidelines carefully. We do not accept any prose over 2,000 words nor poetry over 1,000 words.

Submissions are read and judged blindly, so please DO NOT put your name on the piece itself.

You are encouraged to submit a short biography. Bios must be written in third person and should be no longer than 3-5 sentences. You are also encouraged to share your personal websites and/or social media pages, so we can help promote your work.

Here is a link to our Submittable page. Good luck from the Montana Mouthful team!
