Link Corral: Reboot Your Brain; Submit to Redux; Residency Opportunity in Nebraska

Noel Miller, one of the wonderful Converse low-res MFA fiction students, posted a great piece in the South85 lit journal’s blog:  “Rebooting Your Brain”:

“Sometimes you have to get out of your routine to awaken your imagination and stimulate brain activity. Think of it as shaking-up a bottle of orange juice that’s been sitting a while. Once you turn it over, the pulp starts moving and the juice becomes whole and fresh again (sorry if you don’t like pulp in your orange juice).”


Don’t forget to send your best previously published work to Redux during the open reading period.  Deadline is February 15; please follow these submission guidelines.

Basically, we’re looking for work (stories/poems/essays) that has been previously published in a literary journal that is not available elsewhere online.  This is a great new way to bring a new audience to your work!


I very much enjoyed my stay at the KHN Center several years ago, so I’m pleased to share the announcement of their upcoming deadline for residency applications:

The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska City, NE offers 2- to 8-week residencies year-round for writers, visual artists, and music composers. Housing, studio space, $100/week stipend are provided.

Approximately 50 residencies are awarded per year. Two deadlines each year, March 1 for the following July through December; or September 1 for the following January through June.
