From the Editors
Happy New Year!
We’ve got a couple of resolutions to share with you: we plan to improve our submission response time, and above all get it back under 60 days, and we also aim to reinstate the author interviews and keep them running on a monthly basis. Do you have any reading/writing/publication goals you’d like to share? Feel free to add them in the comments below — it would be interesting to know what our community is going to be working toward in the coming months.
In other news, watch for a special announcement on January 6th when The Best of Every Day Fiction Two is officially released, and if you can get to Vancouver, Canada, on January 30th, come celebrate the launch with us.
We’ve got the usual great batch of stories this month, from new voices such as Anthony Cowin and G.P. Ching as well as some of your long-time favourites including Stephanie Scarborough and Fred Warren.
We are now looking for stories to feature around Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter. You may already have noticed that our improved submission form has a “Targeted story” field — if the story is intended for a specific timeframe, you can enter the holiday, occasion, month or season. Our amazing database, designed by webmaster Steven Smethurst, now collects all targeted stories in one place, so we can be sure of finding all the best pieces when we’re making selections for a specific occasion.
