It’s hard to believe we’re just six days from the end of our Spring open reading period–where has the time gone? We’ve read some wonderful work, and we’re very excited about the issue we’re putting together.
That said, any time someone begins a new venture–like a literary magazine–there are always a few tweaks that need to be made as time goes on. As we found our unique vibe, we also found that a few details in our posted guidelines weren’t clear (like, how many poems will you read in one submission?), so they’ve been updated to reflect suggestions from our submitters.
We’ve also posted an easy link to convert a .docx to a .doc for those who might not be able to figure out how to do that (although nearly all versions of word from 2007 have that in an easy spot in the “save as” drop-down).
