The Latest News from Blydyn Square Books
Happy Birthday, Blydyn Square Review!
It’s official! Our very own literary magazine, Blydyn Square Review, has completed its first year of publication, with the most recent issue for Spring 2022 being released this week.
To celebrate our anniversary, we’ve reduced the usual $25 price for a lifetime subscription to only $5 through June. We’ve also made all the back issues free to read online, so you can take a sneak preview before you sign up. You can read the Review here. Hope you enjoy it!
Writers, be sure to send us your work for the next issue. The Summer 2022 issue deadline is June 15, so submit now! See the submission details on our website.
