Halcyon Needs Your Colorful Submissions


NOTE: If your submission is not autumn-related, please send it elsewhere! Lately, I've been receiving poetry that has nothing to do with the seasons. This magazine promotes seasonal beauty only. Thank you.
---------------------------------

Welcome to Halcyon! The reading schedule for the fall edition is open and will continue until September 10, 2015.

I am looking forward to this colorful issue. The content and accompanying images made the summer edition beautiful. But I anticipate the fall publication will be breathtaking! The following quotes express my sentiments about the autumn season.
“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” ― Lauren DeStefano, Wither 
The grand finale. How true. It's hard to imagine a world without seeing the autumn palette. Whether you submit poetry, haiku, fiction, nonfiction, or recipes, show me specifics. Fill the submission with the season's senses.

Keywords and concepts to jump start ideas for the fall issue: maple leaf, apples, thanksgiving, change, harvest (effects of doing/saying good things), horn of plenty, dialogue between the leaves and the sun, lengthening days, brown fields, good things coming to an end, and preparation.
