The reading period at many literary magazines begins next month. Some Thursday, some on the 15th, some later on in the fall.
The Literary Lab's anthology (their third) Variations on a Theme is also soliciting submissions until December. BONUS: cash prizes.
Also college football, with the attached guests, traffic and tragedians.
