Excited to announce our Q3 submissions window is now closed—and, boy, did we ever receive a lot of submissions!
Now comes the hard work of reading, taking notes, and narrowing down pieces for our journal with limited space. Exciting because this is our debut issue, but hard because all the submitted pieces are fantastic.
So, what next?
Pieces are being reviewed by my creative partner and executive editor, Christopher Robin, and me throughout the next couple of weeks. Once we have narrowed them down, we will be in touch to let you know if your piece will be appearing in the first issue. We may request early inclusion for our Q4 issue. Either way, we invite you to submit again during the Q4 window in a few months. Many pieces just won't make it because of limited space, not because of the quality of writing.
We are aiming to launch our debut issue in mid-August. The physical copy will be available for purchase through Amazon. Yes, we will also have a digital version available for download.
Stay tuned for more details, including the launch date and links.
If you submitted, good luck! If you are looking forward to the issue, thank you for your support!
