Greetings and salutations, readers!
Are these not exciting times for submitting? We are headed into the last issue of the year – the aptly themed Nostalgia – with the remarkable Sabrina Vourvoulias at the helm. In addition to gracing us with the honor of guest editing this issue, Sabrina has also made it possible for Apparition Lit to accept Spanish submissions for the first time in our history.
At the front end of every issue, I meet with the editors and readers and we discuss what we are hoping to see. Sadly, I was out partying, celebrating my annual rotation around the sun when the meeting took place. Instead, they sent me their thoughts directly, and I now present you with their (relatively) unfiltered thoughts on what this issue could really use…
Don’t delay: submissions close to general submitters on 8/31, but remains open for our BIPOC and Spanish submitters until 9/7.
As my good friend Pat Benatar would say, hit us with your best shot!
Until next time, friends!
