Announcing the Submission Deadline for Issue V: Cadenza

Lovely songbirds, we are thrilled & saddened in equal measure to share that the submission period for Half Mystic Journal’s Issue V: Cadenza is now closed. As always, the work you sent us this reading period was saxophone & city skyline, was blue-lit & dancing, was storm-filled & warm. Thank you for trusting us with your incredible writing, music, & art.

Issue V: Cadenza contains poetry, prose, songs, & art by Jill Mceldowney, Kate Bucca, Janice Lee, Jennifer Patino, Adrienne Novy, Alyx Jordan, Mariel Fechik, Amy Karon, Dana Alsamsam, Ann V. DeVilbiss, Give Me Motion, ÊMIA, VIRTA, Allen Forrest, as well as two interviews with artists & musicians, & two original columns by the Half Mystic team. If you’d like to support HM’s mission, you can click here to preorder your taste of the saxophone laugh—the air of smoke & blue—the love affair as old-fashioned as it is timeless.The issue will be shipped to your doorstep on June 11th, 2018. We are so excited to send it to you.

If you submitted to Issue V & have not received a response yet—we’ve had an unusually high number of submissions over the past few months, so please forgive us if we keep you waiting for a decision for several more days! We are a very small press running mostly on love, caffeine, & a damn good mixtape; we’re doing our absolute best to read all & respond to all of your submissions as soon as we can.

In the meantime: this issue breathes & growls & sings with movement thanks to your gorgeous submissions. Thank you for everything. Preorder your copy right here; we can’t wait to share this smoky bright thing with you.
