Panther City Review #4 Deadline is NEAR!

If you weren't aware, I have a publishing company, Sleeping Panther Press. I decided to start this micro-press to showcase local writers (at first, just my critique group!) through an annually published literary journal, Panther City Review.

Definitely take a moment to check out previous issues, which can be ordered through Amazon, via this link (Issue #3, 2018).

If you are interested in submitting to Panther City Review this year, the deadline for Issue #4 is April 29, 2019 at 11:59PM CST.

Here are the submission guidelines:
