After spending these dreary months keeping warm and reading through all of your submissions, we have made our decisions and are happy to tell you that Forest for the Trees No. 2 is nearly ready! Once our behind the scenes magic does its work, we will have a shiny new book to show you!
This year we received nearly 150 submissions, and from them we chose two dozen talented young writers of fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. Congratulations to all of our contributors, and stay tuned for stay tuned for an incoming post letting you know more about who they are and what makes their fingers itch with creativity.
In other news, we’d like to draw your attention to our new submissions policy. We are sincerely grateful to Green Submissions for offering a submissions manager funded completely by grants, which makes it accessible to small, volunteer run journals like Forest for the Trees. We will only be accepting submissions through this manager from now on, so we won’t be considering any new submissions that come into our email inbox. (If you have already submitted to our email, no worries. We’ll still get to you.) Click here to go to our new submissions page and have a look around!
Finally, because we are a volunteer-run journal with extremely limited resources, we are sorry to say that we won’t be able to send our No. 3 contributors free contributors copies as we have done in the past. Instead, we will send our future contributors a link to purchase the issue in which their work appears at a heavily discounted rate. We think that is still pretty cool, and thank you for understanding what it takes to keep small journals like us afloat.
Happy April, and keep your eye out for FFTT No. 2, coming soon!
