Wanna Go Halfies?

Fitting creative people together is what this newsletter is all about; its mission is to help distinguish the writing of contemporary poets living in or connected to Michigan so that through a familiarity we may be better situated to support their work. With this in mind, we’re ready to make the metaphorical connection more literal.

A new project, Halfsies, is currently accepting submissions of poetry and flash fiction. Contributors agree to be “fit together” with another writer, at the publisher/editor’s discretion, and split the publication format equally; the work of each one will published on one side of an 8.5 x 14 broadside.

Like all Symbolon projects, there are no reading fees or publication costs associated with Halfsies. Each contributing writer will receive fifty copies of the chaplet to distribute, sell, etc. however they desire. These limited edition publications, which can be signed by the author, aim to increase awareness of the writer’s work as well as add value to its printed form.

Submissions will be considered on an on-going basis and can be sent to the same contact address as our newsletter (with the understanding that all work may be considered for both projects).
