Fellow bloggers, as most of you are aware I’m sure, Spring is a time for new beginnings. For me Spring is also all about recovery, blinking in the light, taking flight, embracing change and perseverance.
As a young writer who is slowly establishing herself in the literary world I am no longer content with just writing. Words are like a drug that I just need more of. I can never get enough.
Due to this I have decided to take on a project unlike any other I have ever attempted. Going on four years now I have managed this blog, through all of its ups and downs and many changes as I groped along in the dark attempting to get a grip within the literary world and finally within the last year I found it in poetry.
I will always enjoy trying my hand at short-stories and essays but poetry is where my heart lies, for writing purposes at least.
I’m head over heels in love with literature in general. This is why, as an undergraduate project, I have decided to attempt to establish my own online literary journal with a little help from a professor friend of mine.
I will continue to blog my own poetry here but I’m hungry for words from others and I’m looking to get my feet wet in the world of editing and publishing. After all, that is what I’m going to school for.
This is why I have created The Auchumpkee Creek Review. Click the link and it will take you to the “magazine,” also run here on WordPress. If any of you might be interested in submitting, please, follow the submissions guidelines and send us your best work. If you know of anyone, have a sister whose brother-in-law’s second cousin who likes to write, or have a blog of your own/just like to write, help me spread the word about this exciting new ezine!
It’s not often that I ask for help and I hope I’m not asking too much. If you visit the site and have any suggestions feel free to leave a comment on this post.
It’s an undergraduate project but it’s something I truly love with all my heart and intend to devote every bit of my being too. Heck, it may completely flop and I may never receive even one submission for The Auchumpkee Creek Review, should that day ever come though, I can hold my head high and say I gave it a shot. Thank you all so much.
