Holy crap! I finally counted and I have seventeen poems--mostly new--that aren't under consideration anywhere right now. It's going to be one heck of a Big Fall Submission.
How's your BFS going?
I used to be really efficient and get it out the first or second week of Fall semester. Then I remember in 2001 I was really preoccupied and didn't get it out until October. From then on I seemed to aim for October. This year I'd like to get it out sooner.
A couple of old posts about the BFS. I got it out in September of 2005, apparently. Well I'll be darned.

Barn Owl Review's poetry-reading period is now closed until we open for the next issue. Many thanks to all who submitted! Now comes the fun and excruciating task of filling the last few pages we have left for poetry (fiction subs still welcome). Thank goodness Sara Tracey has joined our editorial staff, or else we might never finish reading everything. We're thrilled to have Sara as our newest Owl.
