From the Editors
So here we are, rolling into the final month of our eighth year of publication—and how strange that seems, to have been doing this so long. I hope all our Northern Hemisphere readers are enjoying the summer (and some beach/vacation reading time) and not suffering from extremes of temperature.
We’ve had a few hiccups with the website this past month, and we’re still working to get some of our erstwhile features back in place for you. Taking care of EDF is a big job for one person, so at the moment, we’re looking for a volunteer assistant webmaster to help EDF keep running smoothly. WordPress skills are an asset, any programming ability is nice.
We could also use a volunteer copy editor to help with proofreading stories and publishing them to the site. Great experience and a useful thing for one’s resume in the publishing field.
If you’d like to get involved, please contact us.
As usual, we have lots of great stories for you this month; one for every day, in fact.
We’re happy to welcome new slush readers Danielle Dyal and Glenn Mori to our team, while David Beavers leaves us to move on to other things. We expect to be adding a few more new people over the coming month as well.
And what do we need from you? Why, your Labour Day and back-to-school stories, of course. Your harvest and autumn stories. Your Halloween stories and your winter-is-coming stories. Bring them on.
