Happy summer, all! Submissions continue at a steady pace at The Sunlight Press and we thank everyone for spreading the word about our literary journal.

Speaking of submissions, we will close on July 1 to fiction and poetry submissions and reopen August 1. We will continue accepting nonfiction essays, photography, book reviews, and artists on craft submissions during July. See our Submit page for further details.

Later this month we will announce and publish the winner of our 2019 Essay Contest. We received 58 entries to our spring contest. The winning author will receive a $100 cash reward in addition to regular payment for published work. Thank you to all writers who submitted essays.

Please consider donating to our nonprofit journal. We use every dollar to pay our many writers and artists whose work we publish. We couldn’t do it without your generous support. Visit our Support page for more details. It is easy to donate and we are grateful for your contribution.

Questions and feedback are always welcome at The Sunlight Press. Contact us at thesunlightpress@gmail.com.

Best wishes for a fun and festive summer,
