Issue #8 ~ Summer 2022 is Now Live!

July 28, 2022

Today, friends, we are thrilled to present Issue #8 ~ Summer 2022, the Honeybee Prize Issue. We’re grateful for all the writers who sent us work and recognize that our organization could not exist without their dedication, passion for writing, and their courage to share.We’re eager to showcase and celebrate nine incredible pieces from this year’s winners as well as artwork from a number of talented artists!

In releasing this issue, we’d like to acknowledge and express deep gratitude to the judges of this year’s contest: Kwame Dawes for Poetry, Charlene Donaghy for Stage and Screen, Mary Kuryla for Fiction, and Jessica Hendry Nelson for Nonfiction. These fine folks not only volunteered their time and expertise but were also kind, thoughtful with their endorsements of the pieces, and wonderful to work with. 

Thanks also to the members of our editorial team who carefully considered each of the hundreds of submissions we received to narrow the field to a short list of finalists: Annie Barker, Pamela Broadman, Suzanne Guess, Erin Owen, Michelle Pierce Battle, Carina Faz, and Emily Marvin. Special thanks to guest editors Terry Belew and Cid Galicia who collaborated with us on the effort and are officially joining the team as poetry readers for our next issue (welcome!).

In addition to the issue release, full contest results are available here. And stay tuned for news of some exciting changes happening at TGLR coming soon….

On behalf of our entire team, we thank you for visiting, reading, and supporting the arts!
