From the Editors
We’re into spring now in the Northern Hemisphere, and we trust that means the weather is looking up for at least some of you.
First of all, we have a bit of news: Every Day Publishing Ltd. is pleased to announced that Bryan Thomas Schmidt has come on board as our new Business Manager, so those of you interested in advertising with us will now be working with him.
We’re also looking to further expand our team — we need someone to help with web development for Every Day Fiction and the rest of Every Day Publishing’s projects. It’s a volunteer position for the moment, working on our free-to-read magazines, but there may possibly be opportunities for compensated work on our income-generating projects down the road. In the meantime, though, it’s excellent experience and training, and the right person can grow with us as far as s/he wants. Here are the details:
- You would be working with Steven Smethurst on the admin back-end and WordPress themes/plug-ins.
- We are looking for someone with experiences with PHP, basic WordPress, basic MySQL. The Admin back-end is written in CakePHP, PHP, and MySQL. WordPress has several different in house custom plug-ins and themes. It would be great if you knew some CakePHP and CPanel but its not necessary.
- Steven Smethurst has been working with PHP for ~11 years and WordPress for ~7. He is willing to teach one or more people good programming methods and give people experience in exchange for doing some programming grunt work.
- Communication over Skype or Gtalk required.
Please contact us if this interests you.
We’ve got lots of special stories waiting for you this month! Starting with April 1st, we have “Alf Polori” by Oscar Windsor-Smith for All Fools Day. Then, for the Easter weekend we have “The Easter Bunny” by Patrick Perkins on April 8th, and to recognize Passover we have “Mishpoche in Space” by Sarah Crysl Akhtar on April 10th. Finally, for Tax Day (which falls this year on April 17th because of the Sunday and holiday), we’re featuring “Death and Taxes” by Kat Otis.
On April 20th, we’ll be publishing the winning story from Flash Fiction Chronicles’ String-of-10 FOUR, “When Elliot Let Go” by Troy Farah. Congratulations, Troy, and we look forward to publishing your story.
Thank you to everyone who sent us holiday and special occasion stories for April. We could, however, always use more! We’d still like to see more May Day and Mother’s Day and Victoria Day stories for May, and any other May occasions that we might have neglected to mention (the deadline is April 26th).
