Dear Readers and Writers,
We’re gearing up for issue ii, and we hope you’ll join us on our adventure! We’re running our submission period a little differently this time in order to give you the best possible editorial experience.
Our next submission period opens June 1, 2019 and closes August 1, 2019. Our response times will vary, but you can expect to hear from us approximately three to four months after you submit. This added response time will allow us the time we need read your submissions carefully and offer insightful feedback.
For this submission period, we will be using Submittable, an online submissions software that allows us to streamline our process and eliminate any email domain difficulties. In May, under the submit tab, you will see the Submittable button. Click on the button and you will be brought to our Submittable page where you can submit your work within a few moments.
After careful thought, we have also decided to add a $3.00 (USD) submission fee. This submission fee will go towards supporting our editorial staff, funding our production costs, and growing the tiny journal so that we can expand our outreach and shed more light on the excellent writers we publish. Our fast track option proceeds will continue to go towards the Room to Read foundation only.
We thank you for your continued support, and look forward to reading your submissions.
Founder & Editor in Chief
