Free submissions are closed. Long live submissions.

Dear readers,

First, we want to thank everyone who has expressed interest in our project, and we want to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who submitted through our first go-round on submittable. The response was impressive and, at times, quite overwhelming–and we couldn’t be happier.

We would like to note that our free submission window is now closed. We now look forward to forging ahead through our inbox–there’s a bottom there, somewhere, we’re sure–reading all that wonderful work, and moving forward with the next editorial steps.

We would like to note that we still do have an open submissions call: our Tip Jar is currently running year-round, and we welcome submissions through that tab. That option does require the increasingly-ubiquitous nominal fee. As far as free submissions go, we anticipate opening up again in late winter / early spring of 2017, with dates dependent on our editorial needs. We will be sure to keep you posted when we know the schedule there.

With that, we’d like to offer one last thanks. We are truly excited about the issue that’s coming together for January 2017, and of course we could not have done that without all your support!
