We are, indeed, going to be a full moon soon—in reality and in terms of the next issue of moonShine review … thanks to ALL of you! Writers and photographers really came through, and we have the most submissions since our anniversary issue (which equals MUCH work on our part, but gratifying work, for sure).
Though we still have a few “kinks” to work out in our process, updating our submissions to include email submissions has been a great decision—and brought out many NEW writers! Since that’s what we’re all about, I’m so very pleased.
By the next time, hopefully, we should have a web submission process in place, but meanwhile, I think we’ve kept up with everything. IF, however, you have NOT heard a response from me that I received your email submission, please let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Otherwise, moonShine review submissions are officially closed for this Spring Issue, and anything we receive from here on out (not postmarked, via snail mail, March 1) will be considered for the fall issue (deadline – September 1).
On other news,
I have to inform all of our wonderful readership (and submitters) that our staff has changed somewhat. Due to timing issues and commitments on all parts, Leslie M. Rupracht continues to be our photographer editor and proofeditor but will not be a prose judge for the upcoming issue.
Claire Armstrong, who has been a fabulous member of our team these past several issues, will no longer be on the staff (though I know she will continue to support us and help with events as needed). To you, Claire, THANK YOU! The good news is that we hope to see Claire as a submitter again in the near future!
Again, my sincere thanks to all of you who keep up with moonShine and support us so much—through your submissions, purchases, and words of encouragement.
We couldn’t do it without you!
Blessings to you and yours,
Anne M. Hicks
Executive Editor and Publisher, moonShine review
