“Smoky Quartz,” a journal of literature and art, is accepting submissions of prose, poetry and art from Jan. 15 to March 15 for its 10thanniversary edition. The theme of the issue is “Transformations.” Complete submission guidelines are available at smokyquartz.org/submissions.

The 2022 anthology will be a print publication celebrating its 10-year history of promoting New Hampshire’s tradition of artistic expression, especially in the Monadnock Region. Submissions are open to both new and established writers and artists who have a connection to New Hampshire. Those selected for publication will join a list of prior contributors that includes writers Erica Bodwell, Becky Dennison Sakellariou, Rodger Martin and Gordon Lang, as well as artists Michael Cherry, Eva-Lynn Loy, Kristina Wentzell and Craig Altobello.

“Smoky Quartz,” founded in 2012, is published by the Monadnock Writers’ Group. Normally a biannual online journal, in 2022 the editors will publish one print edition featuring a selection of work from the first 10 years of the journal and new original work representing the present and future. According to founding co-editor and current production editor Linda Thomas, “‘Smoky Quartz’ was named after New Hampshire’s state gem to emphasize the journal’s strong connection to the Granite State. We wanted to promote writers and artists influenced by the beauty of our surroundings and our creative history.”
