The Best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2015, which will feature my piece called ‘October’, will be published on 1st December 2015 and is available to pre-order now! It will be the last time that Vine Leaves Literary Journal will be publishing an annual anthology of their best work, so make sure you grab one whilst you can.
I had some wicked news this morning: my vignette ‘October’ has been selected for The Best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2015. I’m so thrilled! ‘October’ was originally published in Issue #15 in July of this year, and I’m surprised and delighted that it has been selected to be considered as one of the best pieces of writing to have been published by Vine Leaves Literary Journal this year! It’ll also be their last Best of anthology that they’ll be publishing, which is sad, but it feels good to have made the cut!
I’ll post more information once it has been published, though in the meantime you should check out their submission guidelines and submit to their next issue when submissions are open, and you can check out previous issues online too. You can do all this by visiting their website here.
Issue #15 of Vine Leaves Journal is out now and includes my vignette ‘October’. It’s a great publication, available both online and in-print, and I’m looking forward to receiving and reading my contributor’s copy soon.
If you’d like to read it for yourself you can by reading the online edition or, better yet, by purchasing and supporting the publication by buying this issue. You can do either or both by following this link here: Vine Leaves Journal Issue #15.
If you’re a writer reading this, then why not consider submitting to them? They’re open for submissions now.
Whenever I get an email from somewhere I’ve submitted writing to I’m always both dreading and excited to open it and read what’s inside. It’s either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ – simple as that. Every writer knows that feeling when it’s a ‘no’, but it is wonderful when you open that email and it’s a ‘yes’!
On July 17th Vine Leaves Literary Journal will launch Issue #15, which will be available online and in print, and will include my vignette ‘October’.
It’s fantastic to be a part of this literary journal. They publish vignettes, which the journal describe on their website as the following:
“Vignette” is a word that originally meant “something that may be written on a vine-leaf.” It’s a snapshot in words. It differs from flash fiction or a short story in that its aim doesn’t lie within the traditional realms of structure or plot. Instead, the vignette focuses on one element, mood, character, setting or object. It’s descriptive, excellent for character or theme exploration and wordplay. Through a vignette, you create an atmosphere.
You can read, or indeed purchase, past issues of Vine Leaves Literary Journal on their website, which can be found by clicking this link –> Vine Leaves Journal.
I’m looking forward to publication day and I shall post links when ‘October’ is published! Can’t wait to receive my contributor’s copy!
