We invite you to submit a sample of your work for a selected theme. This can be, but is not limited to, a Word document or link to your work that you would like to include in one of Glasschord’s upcoming issues. We also urge you to write a short statement about the work to accompany your sample explaining why it is suitable for the given theme.
Please email your prose submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or your poetry submission to: email@example.com. Please label all prose/poetry submissions with the subject line as follows: Theme/Your Name (eg: Revolution/Walt Whitman). All work submitted without the proper subject line will not be reviewed.
