Do you write true Kansas stories? If so, we want to read them!

105:Meadowlark Reader is a brand new literary print journal featuring true Kansas stories written by Kansas residents (past or present). We’ve chosen the name 105 because we hope to eventually publish pieces from each of the 105 counties. We also want this journal to reflect the diversity of backgrounds within our state. 


We’re not looking for credentials here; you don’t have to have a college degree, you don’t have to have been published. 105 is simply in search of great writing, great storytelling by Kansans. We’ll select the true stories that move us, stories that we hope will move our readers as well.  


And so, we invite you to submit your personal essays about any aspect of your Kansas experience. Or your creative nonfiction pieces set in Kansas. We want narratives that make us feel something whether it be joy or grief or triumph.


Each submission should relate to the theme of our first issue: Beginnings. Submissions are accepted Nov. 1 - Dec. 31. View our Submission Guidelines


Each issue will also feature a directory of resources for Kansas writers, such as writing groups, book printers, publishers, editing services, etc. Inclusion in our directory is free. Advertising space is also available. 


Questions? Contact Cheryl Unruh


We look forward to reading your submissions!

Cheryl Unruh, editor
