July’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

Welcome to another month of Every Day Fiction.

You can always be confident that the editorial team at EDF is staying on the cutting edge of the craft of writing. As you read this, managing editor Jordan Lapp is at the prestigious Clarion West writing workshop — for anyone who’s interested, he’s blogging about it at Without Really Trying. Meanwhile, in similar news, slush reader K.C. Ball is currently attending Jim Gunn’s Science Fiction Writers Workshop, and she’s blogging about that at A Moving Line.

Our last editorial was so full that we didn’t have a chance to mention that Gay Degani is no longer reading slush, as she has her hands more than full with our Flash Fiction Chronicles blog. If you have something to say about flash fiction, check out the blog submission guidelines. This also means that we’re short one slush reader, so we’re taking applications — and if you’re worried about not being able to submit stories to EDF, bear in mind that the commitment is only for three months and offers a valuable learning experience for any writer (though you don’t have to be a writer to read slush).

For Readers:

Unfortunately, we don’t have anything as special features for Canada Day or Independence Day or Bastille Day (or Pi Approximation Day, for that matter), but we wish you happy days wherever you are and whatever you celebrate in July. We do have a great mix of stories for your reading pleasure, with returning favourites including Nicholas Ozment and Frank Roger, as well as newcomers to EDF such as Priscilla Kipp and Jeremy Lightner.

For Writers:

We can’t do holiday features if you won’t send us holiday stories!  Remember, 60 to 120 days in advance of the holiday month is our ideal window for special-date submissions, so start thinking about those Halloween stories now…

    Wow, that means my story will run on my anniversary. Cool. Sadly, I’ll be in a cabin without internet at that time. I could wander the woods looking for a signal…
