Declaration Editing & Design is dedicated to supporting literary endeavors, especially those in the Northwest. This free service, meant to connect writers with venues for their work, is not an endorsement of the publications featured in this digest. For information about having your journal’s submission call featured in this digest, please see our Contact page.

**********

Declaration Editing & Design is accepting submissions for the March 2010 issue of Four and Twenty, our short form poetry journal.

All submissions for the February March issue must be received by January 31, 2010.

The guidelines are simple. All poems must be four lines or fewer in length and contain no more than twenty words (hence, Four and Twenty). All submissions are judged on the ability to create a vivid picture, evoke an emotional response, and use creative wordplay. All poetic forms that fit the journal’s guidelines (such as haiku, senryu, sapphic, and tanaga) are welcome, but authors are not limited to these forms. There is no set theme for the journal. A new issue of the journal is released the third Tuesday of each month.

For a full description of our submission guidelines, including author rights and permissions, please visit www.4and20poetry.com.

**********

To have your magazine, journal, or anthology submission call posted here:
1) Send your announcement in the body of an e-mail (no attachments) to declare@declarationediting.com. Your announcement should be no longer than 300 words. Please do not include images in your e-mail.
2) Include all the basic submission information needed: name of publication, type of literature published, basic contact email or address, deadline, cost, etc.
3) Make sure there are no errors in your announcement. We post all announcements as-is. They will not be proofread by our staff.

Presently, we post submission calls only for Northwest publications based in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, or British Columbia.

Client Release: A Life Transformed—By Accident

December 28, 2009

Announcing the release of A Life Transformed—By Accident, by Helen Decker Liere.

Helen Liere found out how life-changing an ordinary day can be. When returning from presenting a workshop, she was nearly killed when struck head-on by an out-of-control pickup truck. The reader will discover through her spellbinding storytelling:

  • how difficult it was for this very independent woman to become totally dependent
  • what parts of her life were lost forever
  • what character traits helped her survive and recover
  • the role family, friends, and church played in her recovery
  • what saved her from financial ruin
  • what she wished she had known before she left the hospital
  • what happened to her faith
  • how she discovered what really matters in life

Life can change in an instant, but Liere knows that she is now ready for what tomorrow may bring. Her physical loss has truly been her soul’s gain.

For book clubs and faith study groups there is a study guide at the end of the book that will provide for the readers’ discussion of the insights gained from this inspiring story.

Helen’s book can be purchased for $14.95 through Outskirts Press.
