Revising . . . & launching Young Ravens Literary Review!

I just hit the 100 page mark on my revisions. I am also proud to announce the launch of Young Ravens Literary Review with my co-editor, Elizabeth Pinborough! Why am I starting this project in the midst of revising my new YA novel? Because I believe that experiencing the creativity and inspiration of others is a writer's fundamental nourishment. I want to celebrate and showcase the talent of scintillating minds!

Young Ravens Literary Review is a biannual online literary journal.

We accept material from both new and established writers and artists. We want to know what haunts, inspires, maddens, and exalts you on our common journey through existence. Give us your kaleidoscope musings on splendiferous ephemera, fantasy, and the sacred mundane!

We are the hungry ones who cast our souls to the edge of the universe in our never-ending migration for creative nourishment. Our name is inspired by Psalm 147:9: “He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.”

"Why are there so many songs about ravens, and what's on the other side?" --Sarah McLachlan
"Why is a raven like a writing desk?” --Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

These are the questions we ask you.

Call for submissions!

For our inaugural issue, we are scouring ink for beauty. In her poem "Night," the poet Sara Teasdale wrote:

Look for a lovely thing
And you will find it.
It is not far–
It never will be far.

We are looking for works that quest for beauty.  Share with us what you have found on your many wanderings.

We accept fiction, nonfiction, visual art, and poetry of all flavors, from free verse to found. We are also interested in submissions that include raven artwork.

Submissions will be accepted until September 1st, 2014.

Visit us at http://www. to see our submissions guidelines.
