Writing Opportunities

There is an excellent contest for writers each year in a weekly publication called The Peninsula Pulse.  They seek submissions in the categories of photography, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction.  Send entries to:  content@ppulse.com or

Contest Entries, PO Box 694, Baileys Harbor, WI 54202

Also, I recently had a student in BWW who shared this information:

I am on the editorial staff of the MacGuffin, a literary magazine, which means, I am a reader among about 7 other readers, who read stacks of short stories, that our main editor has weeded out of the sheafs of entries that she receives. Short short stories seemed to be in favor lately; by that I mean we even put in something as short as 700 words, or as long as 5,000,(the limit).

I have been on the staff for two years, and some of the writing I have seen in this class, would definately be welcomed for our magazine. We get submissions from all over the U.S., and foreign countries.Being published in a literary magazine is often a great precursor to having a novel published. Often, I see on the cover letters, that many authors have been published in numerous literary magazines. Sometimes there are monetary prizes. The E-mail address to The MacGuffin is: macguffin@schoolcraft.edu  The fiction/non-fiction editor is: Elizabeth Kircos.
Please send all correspondenceto: The MacGuffin
                                                   Schoolcraft College
                                                   18600 Haggerty Road
                                                    Livonia, MI 48152-2696
Two good opportunities!

    Thanks, Ann. This might be just what I need to get going again. I’ve been doing little bits and pieces, but not much other than your site, so thanks for the information. I’ll try to put it to good use and give one or both of these a shot.

  2. Ann, there are some photos at my blog that I think you’ll like.


    • It turns out that I am a sky watcher too. I’m pretty far north, but not so far that I can see the splendid show you captured. Thank you for sharing it. Oh Gullie. It’s so wondrous, yet so far. I watch the moon always, knowing where she’ll be. She is my companion, but as I anticipate her, find her, and sit and watch her, she is a distant companion. I treasure her and honor her. The lights of towns glow in the distance as well.

    • Thank you so much! How did you know I was a sky watcher? I’m not far enough north to see these like you do, but I have been looking! Such great photos. In case you haven’t come across it, here is a great website for your “Favorites”: http://www.spaceweather.com/

    Also thought I’d pass this opportunity forward to anyone interested.

  6. Ann,

    Are these opportunities still available? Expired? I expanded the Apricot story, and would like to send it to The MacGuffin.
