Essay Press Open Book Contest ~ submissions now open until April 1st

Simultaneous submissions, multiple submissions, collaborative manuscripts, digital and hybridized text/art manuscripts are all encouraged. Each completed submission will be considered with care by multiple readers. We will announce our contest winner in summer, and will publish the book by early 2016.

Hello, Brian.
I am launching a new web-based general interest publication that will be featuring many opportunities for Southwestern Ontario writers and was hoping you might be able to touch on it in your blog?
Mary Baxter, a new, web-based general interest magazine to serve Southwestern Ontario, is issuing its first call for poetry and fiction submissions.  Up to three poems by one poet and one work of fiction will be selected for publication on the website.
Authors must either come from Southwestern Ontario (defined here as any location west of Guelph) or be writing about a subject that directly reflects the region.
Payment for each category is $25.
The intake period for poetry is March 23 – April 6, 2015 for publication in mid-April 2015. Other poetry intake periods will be held in June, September and December of this year.
