Go Caps!

Oh wait, this is a literary magazine, not a sports page! We’re just a little excited here about the Washington Capitals winning the Stanley Cup, since DC is just up the road from RVA and this is their first championship win ever. I watched the game while working on Parhelion because I enjoy multi-tasking almost as much a Gen Z does. Anyway, now is the time where we editor folk start prepping and formatting and whatnot, which means there’s a lot to do.

In short, we’re working hard behind the scenes right now to bring you great new work. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to reread all your favorites from the April issue in our archives.

We haven’t given a hard deadline for submissions yet (we will have a firm deadline for future issues since our mailbox is growing to epic proportions) but all submissions going forward will be considered for our October issue. As noted in our submissions guidelines, we are not reading in July, but you are welcome to submit during that time.

Issue #2 will publish July 9. We’ll update you through Facebook and Twitter and of course, here. Stay tuned…
