From the Editors
Happy Halloween! Some great things are happening in the Every Day community right now.
First of all, tomorrow marks the launch of Every Day Poets, ably run by the editorial team of Oonah V Joslin, Constance Brewer and Nicholas Ozment, all of whom are also reader favourites here at EDF. Their very first editorial and table of contents is up now, so go on over and check it out!
In other news, EDF’s managing editor Jordan Lapp has had some Very Good News on a professional level; watch the forums for an announcement. We are so proud of him! (FYI–Camille is writing this editorial, and sincerely hopes that Jordan is out celebrating as she types…)
Once again, we have an excellent lineup of stories to get you through November. We have lots of pieces from regular EDF contributors such as Jens Rushing and Jason Stout. Plus, we have several authors debuting in EDF this month, including Roger Poppen and Jenny Schwartz.
In our last editorial, we put out a call for slush reader applications, and thank you so much to everyone who responded. As a result, Davina Colpman and Hillary Degani joined our team, and are doing a fabulous job. If you haven’t already done so, see their bios on our staff page.
We would also like to express our appreciation to Karen Magon and Philip Bregman for their generous donations. We depend on reader donations, and the kindness of the many authors who donate their story fees, to continue to offer EDF without charging a subscription fee.
At long last, we have finalized the list of stories for inclusion in our forthcoming anthology. At 100 stories, the list would be too long to post here, but look for it on the forums, hopefully sometime today or tomorrow. It was very, very hard to choose only 100 from all the great stories we published in our first year, but we’ve done it. Proofs should be going out to the authors over the next week. We’re just waiting on our Canadian Cataloguing In Publication information before we go to print, and should have a launch date shortly.
On a more immediate topic, right now we’re looking for seasonal and winter stories for December, but please get them in by November 10th. We’re also looking for some New Year stories for January, but you’ve got a bit more time for those.
And now, on to the upcoming stories…
