Grenade Magazine is finally accepting submissions! This is a bi-monthly, online publication, featuring the artistic creations of military members and their families. It’s my hope that I’ll be able to add a yearly print anthology.
This project is the culmination of my MFA publishing capstone in Creative Writing at Wilkes University. When I chose to create a mockup business plan for a literary journal, I didn’t want it to be merely a “mockup.” I wanted to create something lasting; something different. After a bit of research, I settled on a literary journal featuring the artistic and literary creations of service members and their families. Being the daughter of a Vietnam Veteran who gave me the love of reading and writing at an early age, I wanted to give something back. I’m also related to and acquainted with many more artistic service members, including my mentor and advisory board member, retired naval captain and novelist David Poyer.
If you haven’t checked out the site yet, head on over and take a look. And if you’re a member of the military, former member, or family of a service member, please feel free to submit something (guidelines available at the site)!
