Hi, MockingHeart friends!
I hope you’re faring well, and to those who have just weathered Hurricane Ida, our thoughts are especially with you today. I hope that you have access to your usual utilities, and that your homes and lives haven’t incurred any damage.
I just wanted to pass you a few notes! First: as of today, submissions to our Fall 2021 issue are CLOSED. We’ll reopen to subs (for our Winter 2022 issue) in December.
ALSO–today marks MHR‘s sixth birthday! We’re so glad to be in the world as a journal of poetry and art, and wanted to say thank you very much! to you, our readers and past, present, and future contributors, for helping make this fantastic journey possible! We look forward to bringing you more excellent issues in the years to come–and remember that our Fall 2021 issue will be published on October 1st.
If you’re in the mood to celebrate with us, take a look through our blog, Beats, to revisit some of the wonderful moments we’ve shared with writers and artists including you! Also have a look through our previous issues, if you have the time–they’re all available to read for free! The fantastic work of MHR‘s past continues to inform the shape of our future.
Have a relaxing week, MHR friends, and thank you again for your excellent work in the world.
Tyler Robert Sheldon, Editor-in-Chief
