The Broken Plate, Ball State University’s literary journal, is now accepting submissions. This is the second year it will be a national publication, meaning anyone can submit (and there’s a chance you could be published in the same journal as some noteworthy authors). We accept poetry and prose, both fiction and nonfiction. If you send in prose, it better not be awful, because I have to read every submission.

I was published in it last year, and it’s a great opportunity (and it’s nice to have something legit that you can point at and say, “Yep, I’m a writer”).
