Well local author and teacher Jason Splichal created a solution. Sky Island Journal is a new international online journal that accepts fiction and creative non-fiction pieces that are under 1,000 words.  Sky Island Journal will also accept up to three poems in a single document.  All submissions are made on Submittable and must be accompanied by a $3.00 fee to keep the journal advertisement free and focused on the works and writers. Sky Island Journal has a quarterly publishing with summer 2017 being their first issue; the deadline for this issue is June 30. 

The mission of Sky Island Journal is “to price our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.”   Jason has written six books of poetry and his works have been featured in local magazines such as Volume One.  Sky Island Journal has pages on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  Questions can be fielded to  The Chippewa Valley Writer’s Guild is proud to support Sky Island Journal, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting the new journal.
