Launching The Publications Below – A Dream Come True

 

(March 30, 2019) My dream has always been to become a publisher. I write short stories and poetry from time to time, but it has always been more for pleasure than anything else. My parents owned the newspaper in our small town for years before retiring, and I was always involved in the publishing end of it more so than the reporting or writing end of it. When this opportunity arose for me, I decided to give up my “going no where” job and do this on my own. Having two sons, one ten and one thirteen, it was a little scary at first but like my mother always told me, ‘if you see a chance to move forward, take it and go with it. Give it your best shot. You’ll never succeed at it unless you try.’

 

So with the launch of each of these publications, my dream to be a publisher is finally coming true!

 

Several months ago, I was able to obtain the rights to three publications that had folded soon after their start up because the previous owner fell ill with cancer and had to close because of health issues. After several months of deliberation (and trying to figure out how this would happen) I decided that it was time to open the doors this year and start publishing by no later than June 1st.

 

During that same time, I had already started three publications of my own, one to open May 1st and the other two on June 1st. With several volunteers on board to help with editing, critiquing and publishing demands, and submissions already pouring in for  (NEW Magazine) Mothering With Imagination, 552 Horn Road – Logansport LA 71049 USA, a journal for parents to share their mothering experiences and stories, our debut issue is set for May 1st. Printed every two months, each issue will contain stories from mothers (parents), grandparents and other writers experienced in the field, but we’ve dedicated a section for one fiction story and a section for poetry – all with a mothering theme. Pictures and artwork will be included whenever possible. Check out MWI website at MOTHERING WITH IMAGINATION, https://motheringwithimagination.wordpress.com/. Visit Submission Guidelines to see specific needs for MWI. https://motheringwithimagination.wordpress.com/submission-guidelines/. Email all submissions to: motheringwithimagination2018@aol.com. Calling for submissions! The debut of each bi-magazine is scheduled for MAY 1, 2018.
