Podcast, Relaunched
EarphonesWe've just relaunched our podcast to a new half-hour conversation format. The first new episode features Switchback staffers Ian and Greg talking about their experiences at this year's AWP conference in Minneapolis, earlier this month. If you're not subscribed to our podcast feed yet, now's definitely the time.
Fall Submission Period Open
We've recently reopened our reading period for the Fall 2015 issue of Switchback. We'll be accepting new work through August 31. As usual, there's no submission fee, and all works are automatically considered for the Editors' Prize, which comes with a cash prize. Head on over to our call for submissions page to learn more about Switchback's submission guidelines and how to submit to the magazine.
Issue 21 Is Here!
It may be April Fool's Day, but I'm not even joking: Switchback Issue 21 is live and available for all to read. Please take a look, won't you? I'd also like to congratulate the winner of our Editors' Prize, Robyn Goodwin, for her essay "The Boy Under Construction", as well as our runners-up, fiction writer Kori Frazier Morgan (for "No Sugar Tonight") and poet Adrian Arias (for "Breve diccionario del cuerpo/Brief Body Dictionary"). Please stay tuned for the announcement of our new submission period, which will be opening imminently. Thanks for reading!
