Do you have plans to attend an upcoming lit fest, author reading, or other literary event? If so, we’d love to consider having you write a dispatch for us from the event.
Fourth & Sycamore is a literary journal run by a public library–a temple to reading–so books and their authors and publishers are especially important to us. We feature as many book reviews as we can, but we’d also like to start publishing articles about literary events of all kinds.
If you’re a writer and you plan to attend a literary event soon, email us at fourthsycamore (at) gmail dot com and let us know a little about yourself, a little about the event, and a little about your vision for the article. We’d love to talk with you about publishing the article on our site! Here is a site that lists quite a few upcoming lit fests, but check with your local libraries, book stores, and performances spaces to see if there are more events in your area.
For right now, we are not able to pay for writing, though this is something we’re looking into. For more details on how our regular writing submissions work, read our writing guidelines.
We hope to hear from you soon!
