12 days left!

All pieces submitted on or before 10 May 2013 have received a response, but the rest are in various stages of consideration.

Each piece receives between 2 and 5 looks before response is given, but we’re a bit mercurial in our read order, since each editor or assistant reads differently. We’re doing our best to maintain a pretty fast notification if we know something isn’t right for us, and yes, we’ve had to reject a number of a pretty neat pieces that just didn’t fit our tone.

We’re a new magazine, and new as a group of editors working together, though all of us have worked on publications before, and all of us actively submit work ourselves. Together, we’re hashing out/arguing over/fighting for the guts & tone for our sweet mag.

Thank you, in advance, for all that you have submitted to us, for trusting us with your poems and stories and art.

There are about twelve days remaining in our reading period.

We look forward to whatever else this issue brings. 🙂


The Water’s Fine

In the coming weeks, we’ll be making our way through the submissions we’ve already received. With one more month open our on reading period, we’re looking forward to even more.

Memorial Day weekend saw a spike of somewhere around 150 submissions, so we do have some things to gnaw on. Thanks to every writer and artist who has so far taken the time to submit to us! We look forward to what the rest of this reading period brings.

We are particularly interested in art, comics, and sequential art at the moment, but feel free to submit to any of our open categories.

Happy June!
