The last stubborn roses of autumn have finally wilted here in Portland. This is, of course, the traditional harbinger of Sun Star Review’s own (semi) hibernation period. We’ve been a bit quiet this fall, but far from idle. We’ve been so impressed by the quantity and quality of submissions we’ve received, and a common sight around our neighborhood has been our editors hunkered down in a cafe window, so engrossed in our submission queue that they can hardly spare a look up now and then, to catch those last falling petals. We’d like to thank everyone who has submitted, and it truly has been a pleasure to read your work.
However, if you would like to submit for this round but haven’t quite gotten to it yet, there’s still time! Our free submission period runs for one more week, through November 15th, so send us your work ASAP! At that point, we will only be accepting work through our tip jar category.
Once again, we’d like to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to the upcoming issues. We are frankly blown away by the work we’ve received, and we are tremendously excited for the Winter 2017 issue to take final shape. Keep an eye out; we’re pretty sure you’re gonna love it, too.
