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!
