2. RwA 5.4: Open Theme

For our Open-Theme Summer Issue we are prioritizing prose over poetry, but we will consider any manner of works on any subject, so long as it meets our primary objective: we want writing and art that centers the process and product of writing as art. Send us your strongest work, folks, our budget is slim. NO FEES. Standard contributer honorariums apply.

Poems submitted to RwA 5.4 will NOT be considered for the Ars Poetica Prize, or vice versa. Either way, it’s competitive.
