Progress Update: We’re off to a smooth start

Even though our staff has only just started week 2 of Superstition Review Issue 6, a clear outline of tasks for the issue is beginning to form. The newest interns to the publication met with each other during a luncheon on Saturday August 28th to discuss their duties and to introduce themselves to their fellow interns. Check back on Friday September 3rd for an inside look at the event.

Last week our Section Editors for art, fiction, interviews, nonfiction, and poetry started researching authors and artists from whom to solicit work. Looking ahead to this week our Section Editors will be making their final choices and will begin sending solicitation letters. They will also start viewing open submissions, which will begin streaming in to during our reading period of September and October. Our Reading Series Coordinator and Advertising Coordinator have also begun researching their options for authors to feature in our two-part reading series and avenues for potential advertising opportunities.

Last but certainly not least our photoshopper is working on editing staff headshots and biographies for the Superstition Review website.

As you can see, we are just getting the ball rolling on Issue 6. Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for continuous updates on our progress.

    I can’t wait til the open submissions start rolling in, it’s always great seeing work from emerging writers, and I’ll love reading all the non-fiction pieces sent in!

    It sounds like Issue 6 is well on its way…it will be fun to follow along as it unfolds.

    Every once in awhile, you should have a “where are they now?” segment about past interns.

    Shawnte, last semester SR had a “where are they now” post! It was really interesting, and I agree it would make a great recurring post topic if enough past interns agree to interview for it.
