Today’s post is a call for submissions. As most of you know by now, I’m an associate editor with Saddlebag Dispatches and Imprint Coordinator for Oghma Creative Media. We are looking for quality short stories, articles, poems and profiles which fit our western theme. This is part of the official Submission Guidelines:
“We are now taking submissions for our Spring/Summer, 2018 issue, due out in mid-June, 2018
“Deadline is February 1, 2018
“Galway Press is Oghma Creative Media’s western imprint, and Saddlebag Dispatches is our semi-annual flagship publication. We are looking for short stories, serial novels, poetry, and non-fiction articles about the west. These will have themes of open country, unforgiving nature, struggles to survive and settle the land, freedom from authority, cooperation with fellow adventurers, and other experiences that human beings encounter on the frontier. Traditional westerns are set left of the Mississippi River and between the end of the American Civil War and the turn of the twentieth century. But the western is not limited to that time. The essence, though, is openness and struggle. These are happening now as much as they were in the years gone by.”
I might add, that we would like to see more stories and articles with a modern rodeo theme.
