Call for Submissions - August 2014

Each month, the Ashland MFA Program receives calls for submissions and contest deadlines, which it publicizes in its monthly newsletter.  We've been busy with our 2014 Summer Residency program, but now we're back in action! Listed below are this month's calls for submissions. 

Red Wolf Journal seeking poetry on theme "celebration and ritual" Red Wolf Journal is an online international poetry journal that is published quarterly. They are inviting emerging and established poets to submit their work for publication in the Fall 2014 issue, which has the general theme of "celebration and ritual." Feel free to follow this theme as broadly or specifically as you wish. Our intention is to spread poetry as far as it can travel. Please join us on the journey. Deadline for submissions is September 25, 2014.  More information and a link to our submission guidelines can be found here:
