Submissions for the Winter 2014 issue have been open since August 1. We’ve received a large number of submissions so far and they continue to come in daily. Submissions will be open until October 16.
First, a big thank you to everybody. It’s great to have an opportunity to read the works of writers from around the globe, and we very much appreciate your support.
Creating an issue is a bit like creating a musical composition. It’s not only the individual works, but how they might fit together as a whole. For that reason, we wait on some decisions until the end of the submission period.
Some pieces simply don’t fit. They may not be the style, tone or aesthetic that we’d like to present. If your submission has been declined, it is of course a subjective viewpoint and has no bearing on whether or not your work would be a good fit for another publication.
We’ve read all submissions that were received in August. If you submitted in August and haven’t received a response, it’s because we’ve still considering your submission and how it might fit into the whole. We haven’t yet read all of the submissions that arrived in September.
If you haven’t yet submitted, there’s still almost a month left until the October 16 deadline. Procrastinators take note that we keep the submission system active until it is no longer Oct 16 in any part of the world, that is until the final submission date crosses the International Date Line and falls into the south Pacific somewhere west of Midway and Baker islands. Hopefully you won’t cut it that close, but now you know.
Okay, we look forward to reading your work. And thanks again for your support.
