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,
Nathaniel L. Hansen, Editor
Windhover will have a table at AWP Seattle (February 26-March 1). We’re at location O24, so stop by, say “hi,” pick up an issue, and get some Windhover “swag.” We’d sure like to meet you!
Windhover 18 was recently released, and it’s jam packed with artistic goodness (featuring 36 writers and artists). You may order copies by sending a check (payable to Windhover) for the appropriate amount to our mailing address (on the Windhover homepage).
Submissions for Volume 19 opened as of February 1 and will remain open until August 1. (Review our call for submissions on the Windhover homepage. Our online submissions manager can be found there as well.)
Down the line:
- Windhover will also be at the Festival of Faith and Writing (April 10-12) in Grand Rapids, MI.
- We’re in the planning stages for next year’s Windhover Writers’ Festival. (We’ve already confirmed one featured presenter, TBA, and will make an announcement, including dates, when the full roster is set.)
- Late Spring we’ll be posting a CFP for next year’s Windhover Writers’ Festival (February 2015)
Grace & Peace,
Nathaniel L. Hansen, editor
