- Letter from the Editor
- Submissions are now open for the Winter issue! We are accepting submissions from 9/1/16 to 12/31/16.
- Contributing editor Mary Heather Noble was awarded won the Editor’s Prize for Creative Nonfiction Magazine‘s Learning From Nature issue. Huge congratulations to MHN! You can read her essay, “Eulogy for an Owl,” by pre-ordering the issue or subscribing to this well-respected craft resource.
- Mary Heather will also participate as a panelist at the 2017 Moravian College Writers’ Conference: Writing and Sustainability, in Bethlehem, PA, from February 3-4, 2017. The panel discussion will focus on crossing boundaries between art and science, and how writing can enrich one’s personal and professional life.
- Suzanne Farrell Smith’s essay, “Time of Death,” is forthcoming on Copper Nickel. As with Creative Nonfiction, you can subscribe or order issues online. Go for it!
- Editor Elizabeth Gaucher’s short story, “Acts,” was chosen by editor Michael Knost as the opening story for his unique anthology, Between the Lines. “This writing is well outside of my usual creative nonfiction writing. It’s really a kind of ghost-story-meets-spirituality tale, surrounded by a lot of horror stories. Great for Halloween!” — EDG
- Thank you to Gregory Fletcher, essayist from Issue #4, who after his work was published came back to us and asked how he could make a gift to Longridge Review to support our work. We were blown away by his generosity, and moved that he had such a positive experience with us. At Gregory’s advice, we have added a link where anyone so inspired can share the love: PayPal.Me/LongridgeEditorsLLC
