Writers and artists: SHARK REEF deadline is Dec. 31

The deadline for submitting writing and/or visual art to SHARK REEF’s spring 2010 issue is Dec. 31, 2009. They welcome submissions from anyone who lives in the islands or has ever visited here.

SHARK REEF endeavors to give voice to serious writers who have made a true commitment to work hard to produce original writing of high quality. The editors are particularly passionate about publishing the work of the “common man and woman,” whose writing emerges from first-hand experience.

As all evaluation of art is subjective, the editors say they make no bones about the fact that their selections are informed by “our own tastes, whims, and fancies and invite you to submit your best work.”

Check submission guidelines at sharkreef.org. If you were published in the fall 2009 issue, they ask that you skip one issue before submitting again.
