Delays, as always, but Coming Soon
August 12, 2016
I can hardly believe that we’re nearly midway through August already, and am stunned at how quickly Summer has passed. We have some exciting things in progress that we’d hope to have done, but are not quite to fruition yet.
Kathryn Kulpa’s “Girls on Film” was sent to the printer today! Be on the look out for it in the next two weeks or so, and please consider placing an order for this stunning short fiction collection. Fellow 2015 Vella Winner Jill Khoury’s “Chance Operations” will be quick to follow, too!
Talisha and I have been devoting a lot of time to “Excavating Honesty: an Anthology of Rage and Hope in America,” and we have made huge amounts of progress this summer. There were so many excellent works submitted — and a handful we are still actively discussing — but we expect to have this digital anthology released some time in September 2016. I am confident it will be well worth the wait.
Because I had initially hoped the anthology would have already been completed by the beginning of Summer, I had also anticipated on having that time to review Chapbook submissions — and had also not necessarily planned on teaching an intensive Summer class the last six weeks (but, hey, those bills aren’t going to pay themselves, unfortunately). All of this is to say that — surprise! — chapbook decisions are also delayed as well. The new goal is October 1st for results. I know that is a long time to wait for those of you who sent in manuscripts in mid-February, but I also have manuscripts of my own languishing for what seems like forever in other publishers’ Submittables, so I definitely understand and thank you for your patience!
The 2016 issue of Paper Nautilus is, at the moment, still slated for it’s late fall/early winter release of around Thanksgiving.
