MockingHeart Friends! It’s been a while. I hope you’re well, and that you’ve been able to take some time for self-care in this latter part of our difficult year.
Just to pass you a note–our Winter 2021 issue will be open for submissions from December 1-31, 2020, with a planned February 1, 2021 publication date! Take a bit of time to reflect and create–we’d love to see your work this reading period!
Our Winter 2021 theme is Recovery.
As I write this, COVID-19 has taken some 258,000 lives in the United States alone. The hardships are many. But with recent news of multiple vaccines under development, recovery may finally be on the horizon. As the country strives to get the pandemic under control, consider that recovery means different things too–social, personal, or political healing, for instance. Winter is often conceptualized as a time of recovery. Think on these ideas, and when you’re ready, send your creations to MockingHeart Review!
And please pass the word along! If you know an artist or writer who’s been considering the brave act (for it is a brave act) of putting their work out into the world, we’d be thrilled to hear from them.
Finally: If you haven’t yet taken a peek at our splendid Fall 2020 issue, please do! Several excellent pieces await you therein. You’ll come away feeling inspired!
Thanks again! Keep up your excellent work in the world, and we’ll see you soon.
Tyler Robert Sheldon, Editor-in-Chief
