To celebrate the completion of our new issue, Sonora Review would like to invite everybody to the Issue 60 Release week–a chance for you to see what we worked on and what it is you’re getting. Here’s what’s coming up:
Tuesday: An Introduction to Issue 60 by Editor Ben Rybeck
Wednesday: A Discussion with John Gialanella about the Art Direction
Thursday: Essay Contest Winner and Details
Friday: Short Short Story Contest Winner and Details
So, see you tomorrow, but in the meantime, enjoy your Labor Day and this old chestnut about swimming:
Taking stock of where we are right now, for those who are interested…
Our short short fiction contest and our essay contest are each in the process of being judged. The results will be posted on the blog a month before our summer issue comes out of its cave (which means results will be posted in July).
Though the majority of the University of Arizona MFA students have left for the summer, a small staff of Sonora Reviewers continues onward to put the next issue out.
Our last three issues have been designed by Margi Kimball. She has moved on to bigger and better things, and we wish her the best of luck. We will be working with a new artist for our next issue: Mr. Johnny Gialanella, a man very interested in book art and collage art. We are excited to see where this collaboration leads us.
Orders continue to go out. Business as usual. Check in with the blog for further updates. We are excited to give you a new book.
