Call for FBR5 Submissions Floating Bridge Press seeks poetry submissions for our upcoming publication Floating Bridge Review #5 on the theme of "Do Tell" — works that touch on gay life (including lesbian, bi, trans, two-spirit, questioning, and any other non-straight orientations). We are seeking work that is inspired, surprising, humorous, intriguing, and/or just plain excellent writing. There are no restrictions on form or subject matter. Prose poems and flash fiction will also be considered. Poets of all persuasions are welcome and encouraged to submit.
Note: You do not need to be a resident of Washington State to submit.
Entries are by e-mail only: Send up to 5 poems as a single Microsoft Word document or single PDF file by February 15, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put FBR5 SUBMISSION in the Subject line of your email.
Floating Bridge Review Four: poking a finger out + pontoon Part 1 poking a finger out—a literary retrospective. Work from four of Washington State's finest literary magazines no longer publishing, selected by the editors of the magazines. Part 2 is Pontoon as you've always known it—selections from entries to the 2011 Floating Bridge Press chapbook competition. Available now..
Where's Pontoon? Just a reminder that Pontoon hasn't gone away. It's joined by a spectial section to make each issue of Floating Bridge Review.
When you're submitting for the Chapbook Award, you're submitting for Pontoon as well, just like always. (We suspect that folks were so eager to dive into Floating Bridge Review that they didn't notice that Pontoon was right there on the cover.)
