May’s Table of Contents

From the Editors

This is a big month for us — if you are in or near Vancouver, Canada on Saturday, May 21st 2011, please join us for a reading and signing event to celebrate the launch of our newest anthology, The Best of Every Day Fiction Three. The launch will take place at the extremely awesome Blackberry Books on lovely tourist-friendly Granville Island in the heart of the city.

For Readers

We have lots of stories about mothers and mothering throughout the month, and for Mother’s Day on May 8th we’ve selected “A Dance to End Our Final Day” by Beth Cato.

We also have some great humour pieces for you this month, including a hilarious lesson on how not to write from Randy Henderson — “The Most Epicly Awesomest Story! Ever!!” will be published on May 16th.

For Writers

We have a small staff change to announce: Joseph Kaufman, previously a slush reader, will be continuing his excellent work with us as an Editorial Assistant. You may be impressed to know that Joe has been reading an average of 33 stories a week for us.
