Literary magazine Glass Mountain has launched a new website as they transition from a print journal into an online-only journal. They are also working on digitizing their past volumes. You can keep up on the status of this project on their archives page.
Glass Mountain was conceived of in 2006 by the undergraduate students of the University of Houston and was designed as a counterpart to their literary magazine Gulf Coast, which is edited by graduate students in the creative writing program. It’s name hails from Donald Barthelme’s short story “Glass Mountain.”
This journal is ran and edited by undergraduate writers and is dedicated to showcasing the writing of fellow undergraduate writers from across the country. They accept submissions year-round from emerging and undergraduate writers. They do not charge a submission fee.
You can read their current Fall 2020 issue in its entirety online. It features the winners of the Robertson Prize, Sarah Han Kuo (fiction), Yasmin Boakye (nonfiction), and Stephanie Lane Sutton (poetry).
They also hold an annual conference dedicated to emerging writers. The 2021 Boldface conference will be conducted virtually May 24-28.
