With summer just around the corner, Bird’s Thumb, a new online literary journal dedicated to emerging writers, is preparing itself for its upcoming June publication.
The journal is actively seeking student writers and has already featured work of students from various universities, such as Antioch University, Columbia College, Emerson College, Purdue University, University of Notre Dame, and University of California, Los Angeles.
Bird’s Thumb publishes poetry, short stories and essays; and publishes three issues per year (February, June, and October). The journal accepts unsolicited work and the respective deadlines are as follows:
- December 1st
- April 1st
- August 1st
Remember, a great deal can be accomplished in two weeks time. So, prepare your submission(s) now for the April 1st deadline. Still, if you miss that one, there is always August 1st, to which you can look forward!
