Fall Submissions Period September and October

The editors and I met this week to discuss the reading process for fall and we’re all very excited to start viewing submissions. You can send Art, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry to our Submittable account at http://superstitionreview.submittable.com/submit

I’d also like to tell you about the exciting changes this year at Superstition Review.

First of all, my job at ASU has changed so that my focus is on the magazine. All of those semesters of teaching two creative writing classes on top of being managing editor? Gone. I now work full time managing the editorial process of the magazine and mentoring 40 students a semester.

Another change is that we’ve made the internship a 1-year commitment. Students will be required to take a 300 level 3 credit hour training class that will make them eligible to take the 400 level 3 credit hour internship. I’m most excited about this change since it will give me the opportunity to show students all of the details of the editorial process. They will be better prepared and will gain valuable skills in literary publishing.

And the changes continue. We have a new iTunes U Channel where each Tuesday we will be posting podcasts of SR contributors reading their work. You can subscribe to it here, and enjoy our first three podcasts of the series: http://itunes.apple.com/us/itunes-u/superstition-review-online/id552593273 Many thanks to John Martinson, who initiated the Channel as his summer project.

We also have expanded our presence on social networks. We’ll be blogging every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and we will update content daily across our other networks. We have a cool new Tumblr page built by our nonfiction editor Harrison Gearns.

And finally, to celebrate our 5th Anniversary, we are doing a total redesign of the magazine for Issue 10. We’re giving the site a fresh, modern look and we’re migrating all of the content to Drupal. We’re happy to access all of the robust navigation tools that will make it easier for our readers to browse through our 500+ contributor pages.

So we hope you’ll: submit your Art, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Poetry; subscribe to this blog where we’ll post editorial updates and literary news; and subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes U. We’re looking forward to an exciting fall and we sure hope you’ll join us.

      Thanks for sharing this link Shawnte. We have been discussing the omission of online publications by Pushcart in our meetings here at SR. My editors find that Mr. Henderson might not really understand the interwebs and could benefit from having his grandchildren show him around.

    I am super excited to see the redesign of the website. Anniversaries are a great time to get readers excited and a redesign is an awesome way to do that.

    I think having the 300 and 400 is a great idea. It gives people like me who have no editorial experience a chance to be more prepared for the 400 level. And I am also excited for the podcasts!

    I completely agree with Sophia and am thankful for the 300 level training course. For someone who has little to no experience in the publishing community, it’s a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of working for a literary magazine; from keeping up with their blog, networking, and even being responsible with deadlines! Because of the 300 level course, I know I’ll be prepared for the 400 level internship and am looking forward to it.

    Congrats on 5 successful years, Superstition Review! I’m excited to see the redesign of the magazine as well!
