Wow, it’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. First of all, submissions closed last night at midnight. We had another record number of submissions. And by record I mean more than double the amount we got for even the winter issue.
Second, we reached 1,000 downloads total for our first three issues! As of this post, we have 1054, to be exact. This is a milestone that we hope is an indicator of the good things to come for us. Goal: get 1,000 downloads on the upcoming Spring issue alone. Tell your friends, your enemies, that woman on the bus you sit across from every day. Get the word out!
As we come up on the one-year mark (we still have a couple months, but hey, this is our fourth issue, so it almost counts), we keep thinking about where we started and where we are now — what happened in the middle that catapulted us to this place? The answer: you happened. Readers, writers, photographers. We are indebted to you. Thank you to everyone who submitted and to everyone who continues to read the magazine. We couldn’t do this without the support of the literary community.
That’s all for now! We’re looking forward to sitting down with a pile of your hopefully maddening submissions.
