Utah Life Magazine is a new Utah County based magazine that debuted earlier this year. Every issue will feature poetry from around the state of Utah. Publisher/Editor Chris Amundson is thrilled with how things have been going so far for the magazine, “Since launching Utah Life this spring, the magazine has been a big hit! Thousands of Utahns living within the state and friends of Utah beyond the state’s borders have supported Utah Life by subscribing and sharing it with their family and friends through gift subscriptions. We’re proud to give a popular outlet for Utah poetry (and fine photography, engaging storytelling, humor, recipes and more).”
Each issue’s poetry will be selected based on a theme. The theme for the September/October 2018 issue is “Fall,” and the deadline is August 6, 2018. The theme for the November/December 2018 issue is “First Snow,”and the deadline is September 1, 2018. “We look for poems that reveal the many facets of life in Utah. We don’t have a limit on style or number of lines (though poems usually range between three and twenty lines). There is also no limit to the number of poems per submission. Poems are printed to coincide with a theme announced in previous issues. Original work is preferred, though occasionally work published previously in anthologies, books or other sources may be considered.”
