South85, a brand-new, online literary journal, will begin accepting submissions September 12, 2011 through April 30, 2012. Fiction, poetry, and non-fiction submissions are welcome. Submission guidelines are available on the journal website: www.south85journal.com. South85’s premiere issue will be published in Spring 2012, with a second issue to follow in Fall 2012.
This online publication was founded by Rick Mulkey and Sarah Gray, with Gray serving as editor. The editorial staff includes Kathleen Nalley, Noel Miller, Kyler Campbell, Nick Hinton, and Austin Turner. Stephen Gray handles website design and administration. The journal website also features a weekly blog that discusses the writing life.
