Call for Essay Submissions: Longridge Review (up to 6,500 words)
Deadline: April 1, 2017 (Issue #7, Spring 2017)
Our emphasis is on literature that explores the mysteries of childhood experience, the wonder of adult reflection, and how the two connect over a lifespan.
We are committed to publishing narratives steeped in reverence for childhood experience and perceptions, but we seek essays that stretch beyond the clichés of childhood as simple, angelic, or easy. We want to feature writing that layers the events of the writer’s early years with a sense of wisdom or learning accumulated in adult life.
We welcome diverse creative nonfiction pieces that demonstrate perceptive and revealing moments about the human condition.
Please visit our online magazine for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
