Bouncing Back from Covid-19: Submissions Updates

Greetings, writers, readers, and submitters! Thank you for your patience as we catch up with reading and publishing. We’re still here! Like numerous editors, however, we have jobs outside of the journal and tackle submissions on our own time, which can be a feat even in normal times. Over the past year, we have been working to keep our heads above water at our day jobs, which include a marketing agency and a small business. Needless to say, like many others, we’ve had a lot to navigate, and reading has been especially challenging in the light of the pandemic. So, please continue being patient with us!

We will be updating the status of all submissions as soon as we can, and hope to be through them within the next few months. If you have questions about your submission, feel free to send us an email at

Thanks again for supporting our lit mag, and we look forward to reading your work!

All the best,

Nichole & Emily
