Who are we?
The Other Herald is published monthly. We "herald" good writing and art, and offer articles, writing exercises/prompts, etc. of interest to writers.

Find out more about TOH on the web site:
including how to get a free sample issue. Inform yourself so you can feel comfortable that we are a valid publication. We've published twenty-four issues so far...

This is TOH's second contest on Writers' Cafe. The Summer Writing Contest last year was a hit.

PLEASE keep the work clean because this publication is read by all ages, however, primarily our readers are adults. Nothing against your adult content but, for this contest, please remove references or do not submit such pieces. Thank you.

Writers whose work appears in TOH will receive five free copies of the issue their work appears in. Subscribing is in no way required, however, we encourage it; we are a steal at 50 cents per issue cover price! A little gem to brighten up your day! Small enough to be read on a lunch break or while waiting in line, so it will never sit in a pile of unread magazines...(hey, I have one of those piles at MY house.) Treat yourself!!

Best of all, let's keep this contest's submissions ON TOPIC and less than 20 lines. Being a small publication, we absolutely love short poems. Enter the contest with your best poems on the theme of "ICE"!

Note about theme:
The "ICE" theme is to be loosely interpreted, so it may mean... frozen body of water, winter weather, cubes in your tea, an ice rink, a frozen heart, in general the emotional condition of iciness, diamonds if referred to as ice in the poem, etc. Use your imagination! Looking forward to reading your poems!!


Publication of your poem in January 2009 issue of THE OTHER HERALD, and five free copies of the issue your work appears in.
