Update on Stone Telling - Body Issue and future plans  
Originally posted by shweta_narayan at Update on Stone Telling - Body Issue and future plans
Sorry for the radio silence and delays! rose_lemberg and I have both been sick and totally despooned, but we're hoping to get a lot done in the next few days! So, here's our update on how things stand:

  • We believe we can get the Body issue out in the second week of January.

  • The next issue focuses on voices who are new to us - we're restricting submissions to people whose poetry we haven't published before. We're excited about this!

  • However - we failed to signal boost the reading period for the next issue. We did get some submissions, and we'll be considering them, but we're also going to reopen for subs from January 15th to March 15th 2014.

  • The issue after that, we're thinking, will be focused on hope. We're thinking we'll be open to submissions for that from July 15th to September 15th.

So not including the Body issue, we're aiming for two issues next year. We think that's a reasonable goal given our health issues.

w00t!

I have been looking forward to this one.

The issue after that, we're thinking, will be focused on hope. We're thinking we'll be open to submissions for that from July 15th to September 15th.

I like this idea very much.

Thankya :) I think we have overturned the boat and got mouthfuls of sea water often enough and deserve some... at least less choppy! sailing now...

LJ-sharethinged :) Hugs!!! So happy to be in the Body issue, and the new call also sounds great (obvs I am disqualified, but there are people I know who'd probably be interested in submitting).

(Edited to add random missing grammar. I don't grammar right now :x)
