August’s Table of Contents

editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell

From the Editors

It’s always a little hard to believe that August is already upon us; time seems to fly by faster every year. For us, of course, August is the end of our year, currently bringing our sixth year to a close, which sometimes feels like forever in the world of online magazines.

Every year, our archives get richer with the treasure of stories from our past years. With the addition of tags to help readers find stories by topic or theme, we hope you’ve maybe clicked around and found some older stories to enjoy. You can also check out our list of author interviews, which has links to some of our most-read and most popular stories going back to our earliest days.

As always, we need your help to continue to thrive. One of the best things you can do to help us is spread the word — tell other readers and writers about EDF today, and help our community grow.

For Readers

August is a laid-back month. Most countries have some sort of bank holiday or statutory holiday, a long weekend, an extra day off, but nothing we were able to celebrate with stories. Still, we’ve got an excellent lineup of flash fiction from authors old and new from around the world, including some perennial EDF favourites. Happy reading!

For Writers

This month, we’re welcoming new slush reader Lara Dolphin, who will be starting with us on August 12th. We also anticipate some further changes in the lineup as September rolls around and commitments shift for some of our team members, so if you’ve ever thought about joining the EDF team as a volunteer slush reader, now would be a great time to see what’s involved and consider applying.

We need stories for Labour Day and back to school as soon as possible (deadline to be considered for September’s calendar is August 27th), and we’re also ready to look at stories for October starting right away (such as harvest, fall season, Canadian Thanksgiving, Samhain, Halloween, etc.).

But for now, it’s still summer, and here’s your reading list for the month ahead…
