Expo’s 2018 Literary Prize Nominations

Expo2018LitNominations3

As we read submissions for our “Orbit” issue, it’s natural that we judge any new piece against those from our previous issue. Vol. II: “Surface” was our strongest issue yet, and we were proud to share such a diverse collection of powerful, unique narratives in multiple and even hybrid genres.

Expo Recommends: Editors’ Picks

ExpoRecommends_What-should-I-read-next

What should I read write next? It’s a question we all ask ourselves time and again, especially during submissions season! As any writer knows, one of the best ways to ensure your work gets published is to submit it to the right publication. That means doing your research: checking out who and what a journal publishes, reading past issues, and making sure your work is a fit (or writing something new to fit the spirit of their publication).

Fortunately, if you’re thinking of submitting to Expo, we’ve done your homework before you! For this month’s Expo Recommends, our Vol. III editors are recommending pieces from our past issues to give you a better idea of the work we love and insights into why certain pieces were chosen for publication.

Read on to find recommends from each of our genres, then head over to our Submittable to send us your work!
