It’s almost Autumn

It’s mid-September, and we’re busy here at Windhover. Our reading period closed last month, and we are in the process of making final decisions on the 2015 issue, which will be released at the 2015 Windhover Writers’ Festival held February 18-20 on the campus of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX.

Are you looking for a getaway from cold weather? Then consider presenting and/or attending the festival. The call for papers can be found on the Windhover Writers’ Festival page. You’ll have the opportunity to read original work, listen to work by other writers, and attend readings and workshops by our featured presenters: Larry Woiwode, Tania Runyan, Addie Zierman, and musical guests, Still on the Hill. It promises to be a great time!

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to like our facebook page and follow us on twitter @WindhoverMag. Several times a week we’re posting and tweet links to work by the 2015 featured presenters. As we draw nearer to the festival, we’ll post information via those two outlets.

Lastly, a big thank you goes out to our summer intern, Rebecca Hartman (a student from Taylor University), who did a beautiful redesign of the blog. It looks quite spiffy!

Grace & Peace,

Nathaniel L. Hansen, Editor


Early June Update

Windhover had a good visit at the Festival of Faith & Writing in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We met many current and former contributors, and introduced ourselves to potential future contributors and readers. We also sponsored a wonderful off-site reading with Rock & Sling, Ruminate, Relief, and Word Farm.

Plans for the 2015 Windhover Writers’ Festival (February 18-20) are coming along nicely.  This year’s keynote speaker will be Larry Woiwode. Also featured will be Tania Runyan, Addie Zierman, and Still on the Hill. For those interested in reading at the festival, the CFP is now up (proposals considered through October 15). Central Texas is wonderful in February!

Submissions for Windhover Volume 19 (to be released at the festival in February) are still being accepted. The deadline is August 1, which sounds far away, but don’t forget to send us some work via our submissions manager.

We’ve made some updates to the blog here, adding some reviews from the 2014 issue of Windhover. And over the summer, new content (and some design sprucing) will also be added by our very own summer intern, Becca Hartman. She’s helping Windhover out in a number of ways, and we’re certainly glad to have her enthusiasm, ideas, and hard work.

Grace & Peace,

Early April Update

We had a very successful showing at the annual AWP conference in Seattle.  We met many current and past contributors, and made new connections, too.  Of course, we plan to be at AWP next April in Minneapolis.

This week we are looking forward to exhibiting Windhover at the Festival of Faith and Writing bookfair.  We’ll have the 2014 issue for sale, as well as the 2013 and 2012 issues.  We’ll also have some nice freebies you won’t want to miss out on.

We plan to start posting book reviews here on the Windhover blog, and we’ll start by posting reviews from the most recent issues.  We hope that adding reviews will provide fans of the journal with more ideas to add to their reading lists! So, if you know of a book that we might review, drop us a line.

In other news, we are now on twitter!  Follow us at Windover Journal @WindhoverMag.

We have been receiving a steady stream of submissions for Volume 19 of the journal, to be released in February.  If you haven’t already done so, do please send us some work for consideration.  We’d love to read it!

We have already confirmed two featured presenters for next year’s Windhover Writers’ Festival, which will be held February 18-20, 2015, at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, TX (a great wintertime destination).  We will release the full roster of presenters in a few weeks, and we will also post a call for submission for those interested in reading at the festival.

Grace & Peace,
