Today I leave Cambridge; tomorrow I move into my new place. It will be a few days before I post again. So here are the Monday Morning Market Listings (a day early). Enjoy! And I'll see you back here later in the week.

Atlanta magazine is looking for unpublished short stories for its May issue. Find detailed submission guidelines from Executive Editor Paige Williams posted at the Poets & Writers Speakeasy. Apparently, "story content needn't be Southern, but the writer should have some sort of connection (native, resident, student, etc.) to Atlanta/Georgia or the greater South." Deadline is coming up fast: February 1. (I'm fairly certain you'll need to register to read the full post/thread, but registration is free.
