June’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

It’s hard to believe that we’re already coming into June, and getting near to summer, and we’re only three months out from EDF’s fifth birthday. It would be nice to do something special to mark that rather momentous occasion, so if anyone has a bright idea or two…

Particularly astute readers may have noticed the resurgence of podcasts at EDF. Author Folly Blaine has stepped up to manage our podcasts, recording some herself and coordinating others; if you’d be interested in recording a podcast of one of EDF’s published stories, please contact us so we can put you in touch with Folly to make it happen.

For Readers

Check out the table of contents below to see what names you might recognize; we’ve got some long-time EDF favourites back, which makes us very happy, and we’re also delighted as always to welcome new voices to our virtual pages.

For Father’s Day on June 17th, we’ll be featuring “Mornings, With Teenage Genius” by Jakob Drud.

For Writers

This month we’re welcoming three new slush readers to our team: Layla Blackwell, J.B. Michaud, and Dale Rappaneau. They’re already hard at work, so you’ll be seeing their feedback on your stories very soon. We’ve also promoted slush readers Tara Sim and Rose Gardener to Editorial Assistants, so they’ll be doing even more with us — thank you, Tara and Rose!

Right now we are rather urgently looking for Canada Day and Independence Day stories (before June 26th, please, and be sure to tag them as targeted so we don’t miss them). We’d also like to see some summer, beach, and camping stories over the next couple of month, but we are a global magazine — if anyone from the southern hemisphere would like to send us something wintery, we could roll with that too. On a similar note, we’re always happy to learn about holidays and special occasions around the world, so please do send us stories for anything you celebrate, even if we haven’t mentioned it here.

And now, on to the good stuff…
