We will be working on getting the "Diamonds and Toads" issue out this month, and you should expect the list of chosen authors by the end of this week.
As you may know, submissions for our next theme will need to be inspired by "Donkeyskin," which you can read more about here: https://tinyurl.com/mzpf4ut
However, "Donkeyskin," by Charles Perrault, is a tale not everyone wants to work with, for reasons which will become clear by following the link above, if you are unfamiliar with the tale.
As a result, writers and poets interested in submitting for the "Donkeyskin," edition, but who aren't thrilled about the Perrault version, may use similar tales as inspiration, like "Cap O Rushes," "Catskin," or "Tattercoats." Please do let me know in your submission that you are using a similar tale to "Donkeyskin."
Also, the submission window for the "Donkeyskin" issue opens May 1 at 12 a.m., and closes May 30 at 12:59 p.m. These are EST times.
Here are the submission guidelines: https://tinyurl.com/zb3ex9x
And please don't forget that your story should show a thematic link to the the story for that issue.
Not sure where the "Donkeyskin" image above is from, but it is pretty great.
