This is actually a legitimate venue. Sadly, I have been taken in by a few of the opposite.
What's new at Tampa Review . . . .
November 16th, 2011
Dear Reader,Can you believe it's been 30 days already? This month we've been quite busy finalizing several of our latest literary publications, the least of which is the next edition of the Tampa Review, as well as beginning the process to transplant the Tampa Book Arts Studio across campus to a bigger and better home. What an undertaking that has been, and you can check out more about the move down here.We are also happy to report an outstanding turnout of submissions to our annual Danahy Fiction Prize, which closed its submissions earlier this month. We'd like to thank everyone who entered and to let you know we are already quite impressed by the overall pool of talent that this year's contest has brought.For all poets, this next announcement is for you. We are currently accepting submissions to The Tampa Review Poetry Prize. The deadline for entry is December 31, 2011, and though waiting till the last minute would be an inspired way to bring in the new year, we look forward to reading your submissions as we get them. By the way, in case you don't know, the prize for this is $2,000 and having your manuscript published by us - you can also now submit online as well as by mail. Check out our guidelines page to get a full breakdown of the rules and how to submit.For our Florida natives, UT Press is going to be at the Miami Book Fair from November 18th- 20th. If you're around, stop by our table (shared with the University of Tampa Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing program) and check out our discounted issues of Tampa Review and other UT Press publications. We'll also have candy, so there's that . . .And with that dear writers, readers, and champions of the arts we thank you for your amazing support and wish you continued good news - and maybe just a little bit of luck.
EXPECTED TO BE READY THIS JANUARY for the start of the first residency of UT’s new Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing program, The Tampa Book Arts Studio (TBAS) has begun the transition to its new home on campus in the Edison Building, across the street from the Art Department studios and the Scarfone-Hartley Gallery. Transplanting the Book Arts Studio will be the result of several tedious months of planning between the University of Tampa, Dr. Richard Mathews, and Letterpress Coordinator Carl Mario Nudi.

"How do you know when what you have in your hands is nothing ordinary, but just possibly, a great book? Such decisions are always made by others when we are long gone.We can just wonder.But these poems have the right qualities, the ones that last: lines that each stand on their own, sentences like sonatas, a consciousness of hyper clarity, measuring itself by touchstones from the Adirondack backroads to the high cultures of America, Europe, and the world beyond . . . You won't find any better wisdom, or memorable music, in the back catalogues of your favorite songbooks. For my money, then Jordan Smith's The Light in the Film is great poetry." - Adrian Frazier, National University of Ireland, GalwayLight in the Film by Jordan Smith now available here.
