Alle is promoted to Associate Editor

I was promoted to Associate Editor at Vestal Review. I am loving my work at VR, and–lo! and behold!–find that we are on this snazzy list:

A+ Editor/D- Sleeper.

editingFor the last 24 hours, I have been an A+ editor (but a crappy sleeper). Last night, I tore through my pile o’ reads for Vestal Review. Today, I polished off my stack for JMWW Journal. This weekend, I actually get to edit some stuff for JMWW, rather than simply assess. Juicy, long-awaited editing, here I come!

New Position: First Reader at Vestal Review

VR Cover53I could not be more thrilled to announce that I am now a first reader for Vestal Review, the longest-running magazine dedicated solely to flash fiction.

Some dear friends call the first reader position “The Gatekeeper.” One could also think of it as the receptionist: I am one of a crew of folks who each read 20-30 submissions a week, straight from the submissions in-box. If I believe piece is excellent and suits the magazine, I send it on.

If I don’t, it goes down the shoot.

One of the great things about this position is that it will allow me to keep up with my work at jmww. So I get to be a small fish in a big pond and a big fish in a smaller pond.

Yay, balance.
