  • Red Dirt Forum: Accepting Submissions for Issue 2
    Red Dirt Forum: A Journal of Contemporary Literature is a biannual print journal that features American Southern voices of poetry, fiction, and cross genres. Each issue features a contemporary musician and/or band and author interview. We are also dedicated to publishing voices that speak volumes regarding issues of social justice at the grassroots and global levels.
