Whitireia's online literary journal '4th Floor' is open for business again for 2012.
For those of you who may not know, I am the editor of '4th Floor', ably assisted by the production team of Whitireia's publishing course students. I do the selections and initial communications with the writers, and the students handle most of the copy-editing/proofing process, and the translation of the work into the online environment, under the expert guidance of their tutor, Rachel Lawson.
The SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES are on the '4th Floor' website -- have a read before you submit. Basically it's open to all students of Whitireia, past and present, and also to anyone who's been involved in tutoring, guest-lecturing or mentoring for the Creative Writing Programme. If this is you, fantastic! Send me stuff! If not, please feel free to forward this to anyone you know has a Whitireia connection.
Once again, we'll be looking for innovative ways to market this year's edition, including (but not limited to) tweeting excerpts of each work (where permission is given) on our TWITTER FEED. If you haven't followed us yet, our Twitter handle is @4thFloorJournal.
Any enquiries, and all submissions, read the guidelines and then email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your time, and for the ongoing support you give to this project, we really appreciate it.
