Letter: Happy Birthday, New Mexico!

New Mexico State Flag

Madam Millie Press now accepting literary submissions

By ANTHONY ALBIDREZ, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It is on this day, January 6, 2019, that we shall be celebrating the 107th anniversary of the declaration of New Mexico as the 47th state of the Union. The state of New Mexico was admitted into the Union by Congress on January 6, 1912 under the United States presidency of William Howard Taft (1909–1913). 

It also gives me great pleasure to announce on this day that
Madam Millie Press is now accepting submissions of non-fiction, fiction, poetry, essays, articles, interviews, etc. from New Mexico writers.

We will also open our pages to the submission of graphic art and photography.

Selected submissions will go towards Madam Millie Press’s first initiative to publish a digital anthology of literary works written by New Mexicans who reside throughout the state 

The title of the anthology will be announced later this year.

Editorially, creatively, and artistically, our editorial team holds no restrictions on your content, but every work that will be considered for publication in the first installment must have a New Mexico theme.

MMP prefers to only publish works created by New Mexico writers, who reside in the state of New Mexico and who have a regional take on what’s going on in the United States, whether it be an essay about growing up in Deming, or an interview with a New Mexico veteran.

We’re looking for writers who can put the New Mexican experience in creative writing.

Please review our Submissions Guidelines before submitting any work.

We will be accepting submissions today through July 6, 2019 free of charge.

I look forward to working with the writers of New Mexico, and to begin this literary journey.

Yours respectfully,
Anthony B. Albidrez
Editor-in-Chief
Madam Millie Press
