Open Reading Period, New Submission Manager, Ephemera Issue 6 Subscriptions

Dear Readers,

Thank you for following five years of LRL -- to celebrate, we have some exciting announcements for our sixth issue: we will be holding an open reading period for LRL e-editions, converting to a new (way more organized) submission manager, as well as selling subscriptions for a new mail-out (extremely limited) ephemera issue!!

OPEN READING PERIOD for LRL e-editions ( ) will be from January 15th - Feb 15th. Please send a chap or book length ms. through the appropriate section of our new submission manager (! Manuscripts selected for the e-edition series will be available as both a free .pdf and in paperback through Selected authors will be notified by late May 2011.

NEW SUBMISSION MANAGER: we will also be receiving all submissions to the journal through submishmash from now on (rather than our insanely cluttered gmail acct!). Please visit and our updated guidelines at

EPHEMERA ISSUE SIX: for this issue we have enlisted the help of expert ephemera artists Dawn Pendergast and Paul Klinger, who will hereby be joining the LRL masthead! Miraculous and enthralling ephemera will be constructed for each poem accepted and mailed out. We are asking for a subscription donation of $30 for this extremely limited and gorgeously produced edition. We are only offering 10 subscriptions, so please act quickly. Subscriptions to the ephemera series can be purchased through the LRL blog via paypal ( When the ephemera series is complete, each item will be scanned in to comprise the online issue. Please note that we will be accepting submissions for this issue through May 2011. Please send work for consideration through submishmash ( or see our guidelines page at

Many Thanks --
we look forward to reading your work,
The LRL Editors
