Birdland Journal offers a home for fiction, flash fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction from established and emerging writers. The theme for this issue is “A Matter of Character.” Take this where you want to. Besides a character in a story, how about considering the character of a people or place? Take character out of the box. It might be a person, or an animal or an inanimate object. Deadline: April 15, 2019 Open to Northern California residents only. Previously published material not accepted, including publication in any venue: print, web, and personal blogs.
