Shoutout to Daniel Perry

We recently received word here at Underbridge that Daniel Perry, one of the fantastic writers featured in the upcoming Joypuke III, will be publishing a collection of his work May! Here’s what he has to say about it:

“A nomadic young bartender tries to quit smoking. A crotchety writing teacher stands on the brink of losing everything he loves. A family wrestles with the legacy of its war hero patriarch. An eight-year-old boy challenges his mother to start picking up the pieces of their broken home. In more than 20 vignettes, flashes and stories, many of them previously published in SubTerrain, Riddle Fence, Little Fiction and abroad, Hamburger takes readers to Venice, Cleveland, Nicaragua, Lithuania and several Canadian locales on its quest to explore the emotional struggles and hard-won illuminations of life on the through-side of the grinder.”

HamburgerSounds riveting. You can find out more about Daniel Perry and his writing at his website ( or skip straight to a pre-order from Thistledown Press (

A multi-lingual journal of poetry & prose.

Call for submissions until September 1, 2016.

Accepted languages: French, Spanish, Japanese, German, and English.

Please attach a translation with your submission, but this is not required (just highly appreciated!).

Accepted submissions will be published on our online journal in the spring of 2017. We are also planning to launch a hard copy journal, with a launch time TBD.

Write in languages other than these five? – then let us know!

We initially restrict languages to these five because of limited access to translation and editorial resources. However, that does not mean we would be uninterested in considering a different language for publication.

Submit all questions and submissions to us at

Best of luck,

The Underbridge Press
