I've been a reader for litmags for almost ten years now, but there's really nothing like starting your own, and opening the INBOX for the first time to discover all of the amazing submissions from new names, familiar names, names I've read in magazines, names that sound vaguely familiar but I don't know why, and poem upon poem, stories, inquiries, people sending books for review consideration, such exciting stuff. Thanks to everyone who has been spreading the word!
I'm quite disoriented because I've been out of the office so much this week, as wee Ray is recovering from pneumonia. He's on the mend, but it was a difficult week. The summer is going by too quickly, and my summer class (Modern American Poetry) starts in 10 days. Is it really June already?
