Kirkland College alumnae, faculty, administration and staff are invited to submit original creative work for a new anthology, Lost Orchard: Prose and Poetry from the Kirkland College Community.
Lost Orchard was conceived by Jo Pitkin K'78 following the acclaimed "Kirkland Voices" reading during the 2007 Reunion Weekend. "In the 1970s, Kirkland was one of only a handful of colleges offering a bachelor of arts in creative writing," notes Pitkin, a poet and education writer. "My hope is that Lost Orchard will both offer a satisfying sample from our talented writers and foster an appreciation for Kirkland's pioneering role in the development of this academic discipline."
Please submit one to three poems, short stories, flash fiction, novel excerpts, one-act plays or creative nonfiction essays, accompanied by a 100-word biography, to Jo Pitkin at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is June 30.
Previously published material may be submitted, along with publication information. Submission of current work along with pieces created at Kirkland and/or published in Wintersetl, Watermark, Dessert at the Plaza or Red Weather is encouraged.
