Since the Red Wheelbarrow Writers was founded in 2010, we have published three anthologies, each of which has surpassed the last in content and execution. This time we added the challenge of writing to a specific theme, asking authors to be “an uplifting voice amid the harsh realities of the world.”

Every submission to this anthology was read by at least four committee members, and extensively reviewed and discussed. Unfortunately, we did not receive enough submissions which fit the theme and/or were sufficiently developed to make a viable publication. So we have decided to postpone the next anthology. We will revisit moving forward, which would include a new Call for Submissions, at our September 10 Happy Hour.

Thank you for submitting your work to Red Wheelbarrow Writers. We encourage you to continue writing and look forward to reading your finest on-theme work in the future.

P.S. Be assured your submission remains blind to this committee. All email correspondence with the authors is handled by our publisher, Sidekick Press.
