First, a very special thank you to all of you who’ve signed up for our newsletter, or talked to us at AWP back in March, or hung out with us at Conversations and Connections in DC, or at the Yale Writer’s Conference. And a very special thank you to those who submitted your work and purchased copies of Issue 1 or subscriptions. It has been, without question, a tremendous year so far, and for that we thank all of you who’ve been a part of it. Some new members have joined our team too. Please welcome our official New York Editor, Ryan Britt; Editorial Assistants, Sarah Walsh and Juliana Lyon; Copy Editor, Jaleasha Ruth; Intern, Dani Elizondo; and Editorial Advisory Board Member David Althoff.
We’re currently putting the final touches on Issue 2 and will be sending it off to the printers soon. Yeah, we’re pretty excited about that too.
We are also launching a little something extra this week. Starting right now, we will be publishing new fiction, poetry, and essays online. Our first publication will be a short story by Curtis Smith titled, “Blood.”
