Cleaning up Glitter
From the Editor
Amy decided to found Cleaning up Glitter after realizing she wanted to have more control and say over how her work was published in Literary Magazines and Journals. As a lifelong writer, Amy has written poetry, nonfiction, fiction, and currently writes professionally for her day job.
Cleaning up Glitter was created for the purpose of empowering new and emerging writers to share their view of the human experience. In sharing our own unique perspective on life, death, faith, love, and everything in between, we can give voice to the experience of being human and, ultimately, help others identify those things in their own life that are holding them back.
We believe that anyone with a story to tell has the potential to be a writer, and do not want writers to feel limited based on length of time writing, type of writing, etc. We want to hear about the things that make life complicated and a bit messy. We want to publish work that makes people squirm a bit, because that tells us that readers are having an emotional response to the work.
Please consider submitting anything that explores your life views, existence, mortality, spirituality, conflict, and more. Cleaning up Glitter should be a place where we can share our most honest works, without shame. That will mean something different for everyone. That said, we do not accept anything that is considered libelous or obscene, and do reserve the right to edit or refuse works that are considered such.
