35 Word Story Contest!

In order to celebrate Writers & Books’ 35th anniversary, we are launching a very short story contest where the only rule is that you must use exactly 35 words! It’s that simple. Test your creative wits and see what potential lies in only 35 words. Submit one story or submit ten, write in prose or write poetry, whatever you choose–the only rule is that you have to use 35 words!

There are two really easy ways to submit your stories–electronically or in person. To submit electronically, simply email submissions to 35@wab.org, including your name in the email, and that’s it! To submit in person, we have a submission box located inside Writers & Books and postcards with information about the contest to write your story on. Feel free to stop by and take a few, working on them as you choose, as long as you submit them before the deadline!

The deadline for submissions is May 6th, 2016. There will be a reading June 6th where anyone and everyone who submitted should come and read their 35 word masterpieces, and listen to others. We will officially announce the winners then!

Prizes will include being published in our catalog and a choice of some limited edition W&B 35th anniversary swag, including tote bags and pins!

Any questions can be emailed to 35@wab.org, or call Sarah Brown at 473-2590 ext. 110

Submit to JoLLE, a peer-reviewed journal housed in the Language and Literacy Education department at The University of Georgia

JoLLE is a peer-reviewed journal housed in the Language and Literacy Education department at The University of Georgia.

JoLLE publishes two issues each year: one in the fall and one in the spring. Typically one issue is unthemed while one issue is aligned with the theme of that year’s JoLLE@UGA Conference (held each January or February). To be considered for review and publication, all submissions must meet the journal’s guidelines, detailed on this page. Authors may find it helpful to consider JoLLE’s understandings of language and literacy, outlined below, and to read the current and recent issues.

*We accept un-themed Manuscripts, Poetry, and Art year round*

JoLLE understands “language and literacy” to include not only reading and writing, but other elements such as:

  • the social, cultural and historical contexts of language and literacy learning and teaching;
  • ongoing changes in communication tools and practices in the 21st century; and
  • issues involving first and multiple language acquisition and use, regardless of semiotic systems involved.

The journal publishes the work of educators in language and literacy education, including:

  • Reports of research conducted from various paradigms and perspectives and with diverse methodologies
  • Voices from the Field: articles from practitioners in any genre focused on any aspect of their work
  • Literature reviews
  • Theoretical analyses
  • Book reviews
  • Poetry and art (photographs, drawings, paintings, etc.) related to language and/or literacy

JoLLE does not publish verbatim previously published book chapters, book excerpts, or articles.

JoLLE, as an online journal, welcomes innovative use of digital sound, image, and other representation to accompany articles or as the centerpiece of publications. Contributors are encouraged to make use of data that is not possible to publish in print media for JoLLE submissions, including video or audio data from previously published work that is subjected to a new treatment for JoLLE readers.

Submit all questions and inquiries about the journal and potential submissions to jolle@uga.edu.

Submit all manuscripts to jollesubmissions@uga.edu.

Submit all book reviews, questions, and inquiries to bookrev@uga.edu.

Submit all poetry and art, questions, and inquiries to jolleart@uga.edu.
