- Issue 21.1 was released during the AWP Bookfair in Washington, D.C. This issue marks a full redesign of the journal, and the first in our new printing schedule of 2 issues a year (1 in February & 1 in August).
- If you haven’t yet read the issue, be sure to purchase a copy through our website, or better yet, order a subscription.
- We are currently reading submissions for issue 21.2, which will be released in August. We’re looking for poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, as well as more general nonfiction. Please note that our reading period continues through April 15. Time is running out to send us your work!
- Because of our new schedule, we will have a second reading period, running from August 1 through October 15.
- We are excited to be bringing The Windhover to the second annual Catholic Imagination Conference at Fordham University. As the editor, I’ll be speaking with some other wonderful editors on a panel discussing faith-based journals. We’ll also have copies of 21.1 available.
