It was a long time coming, getting on track with the 2011 journal. Our last hard copy of the journal was released in 2007. A combination of Katrina aftermath, increasing costs for printing, and lack of revenue kept The Double Dealer on the back burner until 2010 when we began getting up to speed on the technology of online journals. Then there was the matter of coming to grips with the sheer volume of excellent material from the winners and runners-up since 2007, most assuredly a challenge.
We restarted publication with this 2011 edition, which includes not only the work of Faulkner – Wisdom Competition winners for 2010 but also papers presented at Words & Music, 2010, which we had an obligation to publish. Because of the volume of excellent papers presented that year, we could only handle winners from one year in that edition. Hereafter, the work of competition winners is published in the year they are selected.
We are actively soliciting advertising for the journal at this time. Follow this link for information on rates.
NOTE: Unsolicited manuscripts are submitted at author’s risk. While we do consider work from unknown authors, we are not in a position to pay for such work at this time. New fiction, essays, and poetry published in the journal are primarily manuscripts by winners and finalists in the annual William Faulkner Creative Writing Competition.
