Wild Violet Contests Deadline

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Fiction writers and poets, the extended deadline for the 2009 Wild Violet writing contests is this Friday. More information on the rules can be found at the contests page.

I do NOT judge the contest, so it’s OK to enter if you know me. The only restriction is that anyone who works directly with the magazine (such as proofreaders, reviewers or my husband, the Web designer) cannot compete. Prior contributors to the magazine are, however, eligible.

Wild Transition Underway

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

After a weekend spent going through the backlog of Wild Violet entries, I just completed putting together the rundown for the Spring 2010 issue, which will begin both Volume IX and the redesign.

Appropriately enough, the theme will be “transitions,” as will be reflected in many of the pieces I’ve selected. In addition to some familiar names, like Margaret Karmazin and R.S. Carlson, the issue will include many new voices, as well as reports from two film festivals by Rada Djurica.

While there is plenty of work still ahead, I’m looking forward to getting started with the issue graphics and design, one of the most enjoyable aspects of the issue publication process. While the graphics will be handled a little differently from now on (such as having only one image for longer pieces), I’ve had such a great response from our readers that I can assure everyone they will remain a staple of the magazine.

So now, the transition work officially begins!
