Call for poems, writing, &c from Mt. Hope

From Greg Bem:

Hello everyone,

My old school, Roger Williams University, recently underwent a shift in the Creative Writing department. The nationally-distributed literary magazine, which was called originally called roger, is now called Mount Hope. Anyway, I just met with the professor who is in charge of it, Ted Delaney, and he asked me to send out a general invitation to folks who might be interested in submitting. If you’re getting this email, it’s because I think you are a great creative person and I admire your creations. The email address to submit creative material is Mount.Hope.Magazine@gmail.com. Now what kind of entries are they looking for? Anything! They are as

concerned with literary material as they are visual material, and a combination of the two is definitely appreciated too. So if you have writing, photography, or artwork submit it. Niche or avant garde genres? They’re looking for those too! Visual poetry, graphic novel-esque pieces, and graphic-based storytelling are highly encouraged. I’m pretty sure they’re also taking journalistic pieces–Ted’s a newspaper guy and he likes the nonfiction side of creativity. A lot. Oh yeah–this is going to be designed by folks at the Mass. College or Art, and the physical book and layout will feature a heavy focus on innovation, and try to break away from the stereotype of the university publication. Think something along the line of McSweeneys.

So yes, send him an email. Send him your work. Make those students transform Mount Hope, with its current revitalization, into something profound.

Best,   Greg

    Is there a payment schedule for the magazine? Or does acceptance and publication get paid in copies only?
