With roughly 250 submitters and nearly 700 submissions to read, the call for work has ended. I’ll be reading like a mad woman for the next few days with the intent to get final decisions out to everyone within a week. That’s a fingers-crossed estimation, y’all, so please be patient with me. Reality sometimes gets in the way of literary endeavors, but I’m working my way through my inbox-–and feeling the impact of the words people are lending to this project.
I can promise, without a lick of insecurity, that this collection will impress those who read it. The only thing outweighing the talent of these writers is the urgency of their work. We needed this anthology and I’m grateful to have been trusted with it.
