Sometimes, the oak-lined road beckons and you’ve just got to skedaddle down it.
Which explains the market of the month, Deep South Magazine. They’re looking for all kinds of pieces, Southern-style. That means articles, stories, poems, and whatever else you can drawl on and on about.
AND, I have a writing buddy who had a story accepted. Good to know since Deep South is a relatively new magazine. And P.S., she’s not even Southern. So, you can’t use that as an excuse not to submit to this lovely market.
Time for this little Georgia peach to get on down that road to publication. And best of luck to y’all.
(Thanks to Hope Clark’s FFW for this tip, and stock.xchng for the photo.)
Thanks Cathy. You are full of tidbits.
You're very welcome, Linda. I forgot to add in the post that if you click on the Market of the Month in the sidebar, you'll find the submission guidelines of the current market. I always do that, but I'm not sure I've ever pointed out that little tidbit. 🙂
Hi Cathy,Lovely photo!Thanks for the market tip. This Midwestern gal will trope* on down and check it out.DonnaP.S. * Trope is the word for my secret word verification. I'm going to try to use some of these words in my writing when I can.
Hahahaha! I seriously was thinking trope was some kind of Midwestern word for skedaddle! You crack me up, Donna-Good luck with that!
Cath,Love it!!! And this Indiana girl is pretty far away from being southern, although, my sister in Alaska thinks I have a southern accent 🙂
Can't wait to read your Southern story-Indiana girl or not! 😉
Cathy! Thanks for the heads up on Deep South. I *will* check it out. Enjoy your jazzy day!
Cathy,Goodness gracious,thanks so much for making us your market of the month! We are accepting stories for our blog, full-length articles and poetry, fiction and nonfiction and just ask that the content have a Southern connection. Or readers can write to tell us about their favorite hometown event, what authors they're reading or what they've been eating. Our door's always open! Editor Erin Z. Basserin@deepsouthmag.com
Thanks for stopping by Erin, and thanks for the additional info about Deep South Magazine!I've got a few ideas rattling around…but I don't think I could write a whole article about Southern food. I mean, if it's deep fried, it's Southern, right? 🙂
Hey, this sounds like great fun! I'll definitely check it out…now that I have time to do those kinds of things again!! This made me think of that scene in My Cousin Vinny, where the guy on the stand talks about making grits, and Vinny asks him if he makes "instant" grits…and the guy is insulted!! Well, kiss my grits!! No…that wasn't in the movie!! 🙂
Hahaha! Grits-love 'em.Deep South is gonna be under seige, I think! Glad your time's freed up a bit. (Just in time!)
