Copies of 2016’s  Clockhouse Volume Four are available, and submissions are still open for what will be Clockhouse’s 2017 Volume Five.   Published in partnership with Goddard College by the Clockhouse Writers’ Conference, Clockhouse is an eclectic conversation about the work-in-progress of life–a soul arousal, a testing ground, a new community, a call for change.    Volume Four’s wonderful contributors, including Samiya Bashir, Robin Black, Eunsong Angela Kim, Lucas de Lima, and Jacina Townsend,  join past contributors such as  Charlie Bondhus, Michael Carroll, Marguerite Duras, T Clutch Fleishmann, Cristina Garcia, David Greenspan, Rinne Groff, Cara Hoffman, Amy King, Purvi Shah, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Susan Straight, among others, in extending this conversation.  Work published in Clockhouse has received Pushcart Prize special mention.
