Call for Art and Writing Submissions - Forget-Me-Not Press Issue #3 "Nothing Gold Can Stay"

30/05/2022   Online  

As we begin to move through spring and toward summer, we want to hear about those golden days that are ahead, or behind, that once gone, can never come back.

Moments that remind us that nothing gold can stay. We draw our inspiration for this theme from Robert Frost’s famous poem of the same name.
