Happy spring!

As a new season begins, we’re pleased to share updates and developments at The Sunlight Press. We’re off and running in our second year, continuing to publish writing and art that inspires and excites us.

Just this week we received word from the IRS that we are officially a 501.c.3 nonprofit literary journal. Your donations to our journal are now fully tax-deductible. We welcome contributions to Sunlight, which we put to work immediately paying artists for their work. Help us help artists.

Also last month, Duotrope featured a Q&A with Sunlight as part of their Editors’ Interviews for writers. Read more here. We’re grateful for their time and interest.

In April and June, we will run two full weeks of fiction. We started in January with our first Nonfiction Week, publishing an essay every day for a week, and likewise in February, with our first Fiction Week. Our goal is to showcase five pieces in one genre at once, as ordinarily we publish only twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays, alternating nonfiction with poetry and short stories.

We’re excited to announce our first themed issue coming in October. We will open submissions May 1 to essays, fiction and poetry, exploring the issue of technology in our daily lives. How do you manage your devices? Do they enable you to work from home or keep you from working? Do you put yourself on a “digital diet?” Is social media consuming your life or enriching it? Help us understand how you use, and rein in, technology in your life. More details on this upcoming issue soon. Stay tuned.

As always, contact us anytime at thesunlightpress@gmail.com. If you have a question about our work, our submission guidelines, or the status of an accepted piece, let us know. Also, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram.  If you haven’t done so already, follow our newsletter to get our posts to your inbox each week.

Many thanks as always for your support and readership. We appreciate it.
