A Sense of the Midlands -- Extended Deadline

We're looking for a few more poems, essays or short fiction to finish up our anthology, A Sense of the Midlands, and we have a feeling that YOU may know where those oh-so-important pieces of prose and poetry are hidden. To that end, Muddy Ford Press is extending the deadline for submissions to A Sense of the Midlands for two more weeks.

Please send your entry by midnight on Monday, October 15th. More info below.

We can't wait to see what you've got!


The smell of powdered sugar on elephant ears at the State Fair …

The sound of rain dancing on your grandmother’s tin roof …

The taste of a sun-warmed strawberry picked and eaten straight from the vine …

The sight of the mist that folds into clouds over the conjunction of the Broad and Saluda Rivers …

The tickle of summer sweat as it skittles down your back on a famously hot Columbia day …

All these sensations and more make us realize how unique and delicious living in the South Carolina Midlands is
