Our first deadline for submissions came and went, and Kansas writers came through for us. We were quite pleased by the number of entries received for our inaugural issue and we are busy reading and re-reading stories, working to put together the very first issue of 105 Meadowlark Reader.
What can you do while you anxiously await the first issue?

- If you are more than a reader, if you provide services to writers or have a business those in the literary community might need to know about, please enter your details in our free directory. Each issue of 105 Meadowlark Reader will include lists of resources for authors. What are we looking for? Editors and book doctors, artists and photographers who have an interest in working with authors, small presses and printers, bookstores and boutique shops that have a designated space for local writers in their stores, workshop leaders and writing clubs and organizations, publications of all shapes and sizes. We will provide paid advertising options, as well, but we won't contact you about that unless you express interest. It's safe. It's easy. We'd love to have you in our directory. Click here to enter your details now.
- Work on your entry for the next open reading period! Spend some time studying techniques of creative nonfiction. What is Creative Nonfiction? an answer from creativenonfiction.org - an overview from Purdue Writing Lab - a guide from writingforward.com. And if you are just looking for tips and tricks for improving your writing, check out resources like Writer Granny's World by Nancy Julien Kopp, workshops and classes by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, and grammar books by Hazel Hart. These women all answered our Directory call early. Read local, shop small, support homegrown.
For those who entered essays and stories for our first call for submissions, we will be reaching out no later than March 1 to let you know where you are in the process.
Thank you for joining us on this journey. Tell your friends about 105 Meadowlark Reader. This is just the beginning!
