My name is Anthony Moll.
I’m a writer and educator here in Maryland, and I’m the guest editor for the Winter 2019 issue of Little Patuxent Review. I’ve been looking forward to working with this celebrated journal since Editor Steven Leyva first approached me with the idea, and I’m excited to announce that submissions are officially open for the issue. Our submission deadline is October 24.
Here’s the plan:
Half of the issue will be the usual thoughtful, well-curated selections chosen by the editors of LPR. They’re a group of talented writers and readers with a variety of interests and tastes. They’re building an unthemed issue for Winter 2019, so if you’ve been holding onto smart, fully-realized work that’s perfect for LPR, now is the time to submit.
Also, I’ll be curating a folio of work from LGBTQI+ writers from Maryland for the issue. Here too, the call for submissions has no specific theme, and the work will still be reviewed by the LPR team. I really want to show off both the talent and the diversity of voices that Maryland’s LGBTQI+ communities offer. I’ll be soliciting writers and poets with whose work I’m already familiar, but I also want to encourage LGBTQI+ writers whose work I haven’t yet heard (including those who have yet to publish any work) to send us your best writing.
If you identify with any of those letters (or SGL, two-spirit, or anything found in the ‘+’), feel free to let us know in your cover letter. It’ll be helpful for us when it comes time to organize the issue.
Here’s where you can submit. All the details about guidelines, rights and so on are listed there.:
