The upcoming year might be a little challenging for us Switchbackers, as editors leave the city (one already left, miss you H!) to go on to bigger and better things in their own lives.
In order to make the transition a little easier on everyone, we have decided to move the contest to be more aligned with the academic calendar, so we can read manuscripts over the summer instead of over the fall semester and winter break.
Therefore, our next contest period will be March 1 through June 1, 2010. Details to come both here and on our website.
Over the year, you'll see some more exciting changes taking place as well (Sales! Events small and large! Potentially returning poets!). Please be patient with us as we do everything within our power to keep supporting emerging and innovative poetry by women.
