Hazel & Wren is based in Minnesota, a state where I once spent a summer living in a messy old house, interning at the amazing Loft Literary Center, and serving pie at a diner. Their contest was professional, courteous and well-organized; I definitely encourage other writers to work with them and participate in their events.
Here you’ll find things like an interactive online Open Mic, an all-inclusive, totally informational calendar of Minneapolis/St. Paul literary events, a scary-fantasticcalendar of writing contest and lit journal deadlines, informational tidbits onhow to start your own lit mag and/or letterpress, gads of lit reviews, interviews, fun writing prompts, limited-edition letterpress goodies, and all sorts of other literary/visual/eclectic nonsense.
