About Running with Water Anthology
Running with Water, our bi-annual literary anthology, seeks to provide quality writing to the world that would otherwise not be seen. We encourage fresh and original unpublished works.
We lean more towards writing that empowers, educates, inspires, encourages or moves us in some way–the best works are those that get into the bones. But some works we will publish simply for the enjoyment of reading them. Submit and surprise us. We love to be surprised.
NOTE: Running with Water has no theme. The name, much like writing, is fluid. Writing moves and flows through the world, sometimes in unexpected ways–it seeps through cracks or crevices, into fissures, through the land and through our bodies. Water moves, nourishes, sustains, and can change the structure of our land and our lives. If we use words like water, could we not then impact the world?
