Editorial Focus

Word Fountain is the literary magazine of the Osterhout Free Library. Our goal is to feature 40 to 60 pages of the best writing we can find, with an emphasis on poetry and fiction. We feature a broad range of styles from emerging and established authors. While we do aim for a portion of our magazine to reflect some local or regional flavor, we enjoy publishing writers from all across North America and the globe. 

Tips From the Editor

Our submission window is open from Sept. 24 to Oct. 29 of 2018.
