Readers, writers, everyone–
This one was a long… long, long,long time coming. I know there have been so many people asking about their work, and we even lost some contributors because we took so long to get this one on its feet. That would be on us. Yes, this past year has been absolutely nuts, but that’s just how life works.
What matters now is that it’s here. Issue Four was published earlier today and it looks beautiful. We owe all our design magnificence to Mr. John Carter himself, who really made some incredible images pop on the page. I am so ecstatic to have been working with him and to continue working with him throughout this process.
Now, what’s next? Issue Five is the next thing on our plates. Therefore, I declare the reading season for Issue Five to be officially open! As these should be pretty short reads (you know, flash nonfiction issue and all), we’re going to have an extended official reading period. We’ve had submissions open for Issue Five for awhile now, but we’re going to give you a few more months to really hone that work. Our submission period will close in late November, early December (we’ll get back to you on a very specific date).
We look forward to reading your words! You get 750 of them, so they better be awesome!
