Publisher's description: Mud Season Review is an international literary journal run by members of the Burlington Writers Workshop, a free writing workshop based in Vermont. Named for early springtime in New England, when the snow melts and the ground thaws, the journal aims to foster and celebrate the stages of creation, as it makes the transition from inner work to publication.
Our staff is dedicated to creating a journal that mirrors the openness of the workshops, in which writers of all genres support each other's love of writing and reading, provide vibrant, kind, insightful feedback, forge significant creative relationships, and demonstrate that the pursuit of excellence in their craft doesn’t have to be formal, exclusive or anonymous. We aim to publish deeply human, fully realized work from far and wide, and hope always to include voices new to us and new to publication.
We publish online bimonthly: one story, one portfolio of poems, one essay or piece of narrative nonfiction, and visual art. The online journal showcases these individual works with accompanying artwork, for two months, and publishes interviews with the authors and featured artist. Editors will provide written feedback on work for a fee.
