Great Falls Literary Guild

Launches Literary Journal

The MSU GF Literary Guild today announced plans to begin publishing an annual literary journal, beginning in January 2006. MO: Writings from the River will be published annually, and will feature quality poetry, short fiction, creative nonfiction and essays as well as original artwork and photography.

In addition to publishing the work of local artists, editors hope to attract submissions from authors nationwide. The journal’s editorial staff has announced a call for submissions of original work and has posted guidelines on the literary guild’s web page Submission deadline for the first issue is 30 November.

Locally the first issue of the literary journal will be distributed free of charge through local booksellers and other outlets, and will be available nationwide by subscription.

Plans for future issues include an annual contest for fiction and poetry with a cash prize that promises to attract exceptional quality writing from all over the world.
