Right now, many Superstition Review interns are waiting for their workloads to either drastically taper off or greatly increase as we approach the transition from receiving and choosing work to publishing it. Spring break next week just about marks this transition, and it can’t come soon enough.
Our Section Editors are currently anxiously awaiting replies to their solicitations, while still doing all they can to keep up with reading open submissions. (But by all means, send them more to read! You’ve got till March 31st to submit your work.) Our Submissions Coordinator has been a rock keeping hundreds of open submissions organized behind the scenes. Interviews are well underway, now that the Section Editors have finished working with our Interview Coordinator to compose their interview questions. Our Photoshopper and Advertising Coordinator have been collaborating on, surprise, photoshopping and advertising. In Development, one Coordinator actually finished her work on formatting previous issues of Superstition Review for Kindle, and the other just completed a list of grants for which SR may be eligible. However, we are now encountering some hurdles for both grants and Kindle that may be difficult to overcome. Our Reading Series Coordinator has redirected her focus toward preparing for our reading with Franz Wright and researching potential readers for our next issue.
After spring break, you’ll be hearing a lot less about our Section Editors’ heavy workloads, and a lot more about the preparation of Superstition Review‘s website. Our Content Coordinator and Web Designers are ready to buckle down.
For at least one SR intern, the work remains steady. I’m here on the blog, as usual, introducing you to our staff and keeping you up to date on Superstition Review news and progress.
