A new year, a new era … the right moment for some announcements.
As regular readers probably noticed, 2010 was a year of the symbiosis of old and new … new editors, old editors shifting place and, not less capable of their task, they brought it to a surprising result. Of course I want to thank all of them, both old and new, for their time, their talent and their enthousiasm in bringing you quality literature.
First of all I want to announce we have three new co-editors: Amber Bromer as assistant poetry-editor, Alan Garvey in charge of (poetry) reviews, and soon Tiffany De Vos, who will continue the fresh series of interviews for the Art Section.
Among our editors we welcome Meghan Barnes as non-fiction editor, continue to praise Luis Rivas, this time as poetry editor, and of course our most valuable Allie, a rock to build on, as fiction editor and co-ordinator of the Pushcart Prize Nominations.
There’s also some news from our previous Editor-in-chief Richard Wink who founded a print magazine together with Ben Smith (for link and more information see post below) and from Joseph M. Gant, until short our poetry editor, who just released the Anthology of S & M Magazine at SAM Publishing. I hope you all will take a look at both initiatives!
2011 will be a very busy year for us, besides our regular issues for poetry, fiction and non-fiction, we have a ton of reviews waiting to be unleashed on you and art interviews of at least 5 or 6 artists coming. Where the grand innovation in 2010 was our participation to the Pushcart Prize, we are still considering Gloom Cupboard in print for 2011. This however doesn’t mean it will be immediately taken care of. As always and unfortunately practical agreements and arrangements slow down a process that is already a huge undertaking for anyone who starts it.
With this word of thanks to all our readers, contributors, writers and artists, I salute you!
