Pittsburgh, PA—The Hour After Happy Hour Writing Workshop is delighted to extend its call for submissions for the After Happy Hour Review, a new, biannual online and annual print journal, slated for its inaugural release on March 27, 2014. The release will coincide with a reading at Assemble Art Gallery in Pittsburgh’s East End.
Authors and artists featured in the magazine will showcase their work. There is a suggested $5 door donation; light refreshments will be provided. Although editors review magazine submissions on a rolling basis, for consideration in March’s publication, artists must submit their work no later than Friday, February 21, 2014.
The After Happy Hour Review seeks to publish the very best in contemporary literature and art, produced within and outside of the Hour After Happy Hour Writing Workshop. For specific details regarding eligibility and guidelines for how to submit or join the workshop, visit www.afterhappyhourreview.com.
The After Happy Hour Review journal and reading series was awarded partial funding from the Sprout Foundation, through the foundation’s Seed Award program. Sprout Seed Awards are modest financial awards ($500–$10,000) that provide critical financial support for projects and programs in the early stages of development—when just a small amount of investment has the potential to yield big results in the community.
