It's been awhile...
I am sometimes a "bad" blogger. August, I out and about a lot. I spent a week at the Old Pool Farm in PA volunteering at the Philadelphia Folk Festival as I do every year. Following that, the semester began. I am teaching four classes right now, two semester long and one five week. I will be teaching another five-week course immediately following the one I'm teaching now. No wonder I have yet to make it through Ken Kesey's Sometimes a Great Notion!
...However, there's some exciting Gigantic Sequins news!
We are almost at our financial goal that will send us to print. Help us out by becoming a Friend of Gigantic Sequins or buying a copy of our 1.1 or 1.2 issues. Or both of them.
We are holding a RAFFLE with prizes from... ModCloth, Rose Metal Press, Tao Lin and MORE. An itemized list of EVERYTHING you can win will soon be available here and on our Official Website.
So it looks like our 2.1 issue with me as editor in chief, Sophie Klahr as poetry editor and Jordan Tavenner as designer will be going to print in OCTOBER 2010! Hooray.
Those who submitted for our 2.2 issue should be notified or will be notified soon. We hope to bring that issue out in the spring.
And for those of you waiting, we should soon be accepting submissions for our 3.1 issue. This also means that our Brand Spankin' New submission guidelines will be up soon. HOLLER.
And finally, last but not least, we have promoted Zach Yontz to fiction editor for our 3.1 issue.
Hang in there, folks. It's almost that time...
