We have not posted for a while! We have worked ourselves up into such a hysteria that we have fallen onto our fainting couch. Here are a rare few moments of coherent thought, before we slink back into our black velvet cloud.
What happens in daylight:
Our editor Jace Brittain began the PhD program in Fiction at the University of Utah. He is working with The Halophyte Collective on a new issue and is now a Nonfiction editor over at Quarterly West. (Check out the site’s electric body artwork by Michael Reedy.)
Our editor Jayme Russell awaits the publication of her second chapbook PINKpoems, as the editors at Adjunct Press hand stitch pink hearts into each copy. The chapbook will be released on Halloween. In the meantime, she has published poems about an amputated arm in Timber’s Ruination issue and in Entropy’s #finalpoems series, as well as one of her PINKpoems at Jellyfish Magazine. In the spirit of this horrific season, she has an Argento inspired poem up at The Spectacle.
