Time for Submissions

Calling on poets, storytellers, memoirists and essayists — it is CLOVER time!

We need your submissions now for our December book.  Follow the link to Submittables to file yours there.  Easy to do. The only question remains, Why not?

By your submission, you are supporting yourself as an artist and the literary community which needs support.  Good insightful writing is resistance against the status quo.

Our closing date for December publication is September 30.  Get crackin’!  And get your submission to Clover today.

I am in Brussels where fall has settled in. In the park across the street trees are changing shades of green to autumn rusts.  Rain falls at a steady pace–the perfect day to read submissions.  I am hoping one of them is yours.


Clover Ad for 2016 CWC_004

Our ad for  the upcoming Chuckanut Writers Conference catalog– Clover will be at the conference handing out freebies and offering sidewalk conference commentary — always so much fun to take part and truly listen to the fine writers brought in as faculty  and to meet and greet other writer organizations in Bellingham. Best of all are those attending  who come into the conference with books and stories-in-the-works and poetry.

Clover‘s table is close to Village Books at the conference. I am one of their best conference customers, and it is a delight to see Clover‘s summer edition among the books set out to buy. I love the food truck too!

So thumb’s up to Jessica Lohafer, conference coordinator from Whatcom Community College, Village Books, and all of us who support the writing community.

SUBMISSION PERIOD ENDS APRIL 30, 2016 — TWO DAYS LEFT! Clover, A Literary Rag‘s June edition will be out for conference time, June 24th!

Welcoming Submissions


HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY from Clover, A Literary Rag

Spring winds through evergreen boughs — blue skies — green beer.  A grand day to be Irish.

A reminder to get your submissions in for the 11th edition of Clover! We accept poetry, short stories, essays and memoir slices. We love the Northwest but open our arms and our interests to you, wherever you are. Follow the link to and find out how easily you can submit your best work to us.

There was a literary rag named Clover
That got to be known all over
The fun that was had
Made the editors glad
And welcome your words, moreover.
