Calling all Authortunists! Free-for-all edition! One month of open paying submissions, grants, contests, fellowships, events+. Thank you to ALL subscribers!

✈️The newsletter is shorter this week as I’ve been busy playing hostess. As a result, I’m making it free-for-all. Next week will be back to the usual length. Colleen Anderson is still visiting us here in Brazil. We’ve had a churrasco, we’ve been to the Cachaça distillery, we’ve shopped, we had an amazing appearance at the university, played with divining rods, played RPG… most important we published her newest book of poetry The Lore of Inscrutable Dreams from Yuriko Publishing. Find it here in paperback and ebook. She leaves next Tuesday.


Happy Birthday to American poet, author, and teacher Gwendolyn Brooks, born 106 years ago today on June 7, 1917 and my Guardian Author this week. Brooks didn’t feel the need to pursue a four-year college degree because she already knew she wanted to be a writer.
