We’re Off for Summer Vacation

We're off until Labor Day. Have a fiction-filled summer!

Dear Friends,

With the Fourth of July holiday nearly upon us, we’re taking this as our cue to begin summer vacation. We’ll return to our normal publication schedule after Labor Day. See you in September!

But before we head off, we wanted to say “Thank you,” once again, for your readership and support. We had another great year, including a marvelous celebration of Short Story Month in May. In case you missed it, here’s a link to our Short Story Month posts.

Come back this fall for an equally wonderful line-up. We’ll be featuring our usual mix of essays, interviews, reviews, and Shop Talk posts by, with, or about such writers as: Robin MacArthur, Chris Hebert, Alan Heathcock, Carolyn Parkhurst, Megan Abbott, Jennifer Haigh, and more.

In the meantime, we wish you a fiction-filled summer!
