A VERY Special Special Call for Submissions: HeartWood: Getting to the Heart of the Matter

I am honored to be tapped as a nonfiction editor for the new HeartWood literary magazine out of West Virginia Wesleyan College. #WVWCMFA

Mary Carroll-Hackett: Poetry and Prose

Why is this one special special? 

Because in the company of an amazing group of people, this Call for Submissions is coming directly from me!


Allow me to introduce


an online literary journal in association with West Virginia Wesleyan’s Low-Residency MFA program, publishes twice yearly, in April and October. Our inaugural issue will go live April 2016.


General Submissions

We accept submissions year round through Submittable, and welcome previously unpublished poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, from both established and emerging writers.

What We Want:

We are interested in writing that pushes into, dares to reveal, its own truth, that takes emotional risks, that gets to the heart of the matter.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, provided you notify us if the work is accepted elsewhere.

We also welcome queries from Appalachian artists (writers, visual artists, musicians, performers, folk artists, etc) interested in being included in our Appalachian Arts section.
