Submissions for the Summer Issue

The deadline for The Summer Issue has come and gone.

We’ve received forty-six submissions, but, due in large part to my illness, we’ve only responded to twenty-three of them so far. The thing that worries me the most is that we will only have room for about seventeen stories in The Summer Issue, and that means we will have to release quite a few pieces just because there won’t be room for them!

We have not accepted anything for The Summer Issue yet; however, we’ve made editorial suggestions to several of the authors, and they’ve resubmitted their work in light of our suggestions—we hope! These resubmissions also need to be reviewed.

So there’s a lot of work ahead of us, and we hope you'll be patient if our progress is a bit glacial.
