5×5 would like to take a moment to introduce Grace Campbell to our team. Grace was born, raised, and educated in New York. She currently lives and works in Olympia, Washington. Her work has appeared in The Santa Ana River Review, Wendigo, Black River Press, and elsewhere. Grace published her essay “wrapper/shoes” in the last issue of 5×5, and has since agreed to participate further by reading nonfiction submissions with S.J. Thanks for joining us, Grace! We’re so grateful to be working with you to create more issues of a magazine that seeks and celebrates writing that’s as strong and as clear as your own!
5×5 Literary Magazine editors are sad to say farewell to our former poetry editor and co-editor-in-chief extraordinaire, Jory Mickelson. However, we are thrilled to announce that Jeff Pearson is now on the team! Please take some time to read Jeff’s biography below and to join us in officially welcoming him to 5×5 Literary Magazine!
5×5 editors appreciate your patience as we continue to prepare Issue #5. The estimated launch date for the upcoming issue is the end of March. Please stay tuned for additional updates, and thanks for reading!
We couldn’t be more pleased with the volume of poetry submissions we’ve been receiving, and we are currently in the process of selecting submissions for our Winter, 2016/2017 issue, which will be launched on or near the Winter Solstice (late December/January). Submissions are closed for that issue.
For those of you interested in submitting your work for the Summer, 2017 issue, which will be launched on or near the Summer Solstice, please note that we will not be opening submissions for that issue until around January 15th (stay tuned for an announcement). This will ensure that you receive a timely response to your submissions.
Thanks again for your interest in 5×5! We look forward to reading your work!
5×5 is looking forward to selecting pieces for Issue #5, which will be launched on (or near) the Winter Solstice. There is no theme for the issue. We only ask that you send us your strongest, clearest nonfiction, fiction, and poetry! We are currently in the process of reading submissions and will begin selecting submissions soon. Thanks for supporting our magazine!
