An update, long overdue

I am working on selecting the last few poems for the winter issue of blossombones, which should still go live sometime around February 1st, if all goes well.

If you are still waiting to hear from me, thanks again for your work and for your patience. You should receive an email by January 10th, at the latest. If you haven't heard from me by then, please query.

I plan to take a brief hiatus from reading submissions after the next issue is published. We'll start reading again this summer. In the meantime, I want to consider a number of things--our format and our submissions policies for example--and figure out a more efficient way to publish blossombones.

I'm thinking of switching to poetry only.

...and accepting submissions form women only (as I think a number of women only publications have folded recently, and I'd like to fill that gap).

...I might publish more frequently, but feature only a few writers at a time.

Life has been hectic. I'm sure yours is too.

Peace & Love,

editorial miscellany

I am behind schedule with the Freud issue of blossombones. Life has been weird. I have been weird. It's coming soon! I promise.

Also: Just a heads-up: we're open to submissions again beginning August 1st for an all-poetry issue. All concepts/themes are welcome.
