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: http://www.otherherald.com
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 fifth contest on Writers' Cafe. There are others currently running for coming themed issues. The Summer Writing Contest last year was a hit. Thanks for all the great participation!
THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO YOUR POEMS ONLY (5-8 LINES OR LESS) IN HONOR OF NATIONAL POETRY MONTH (APRIL)!
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 explicit references or do not submit such pieces. Indirect references are sometimes allowed. We will contact you if we need to edit in any manner before publication. Thank you in advance for your help with this. We want to spend our (very limited, working on TOH is not our full time jobs) free time reading appropriate submissions, rather than ones that will not be appropriate for all readers. We trust this explains our needs, but contact us if you have questions, please: firstname.lastname@example.org or as a convo to TFRice on Writers' Cafe.
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!!
Looking forward to reading your short poems, on just about any topic!!
