Welcome Back, American Short Fiction
February 28, 2013 § Leave a comment
For a while there it seemed like the future of American Short Fiction was in doubt, as nothing had been heard from the magazine in the social media sphere since August. Now it is back with new editors and a new web site:
As we take up the reins of American Short Fiction in 2013, we find ourselves repeatedly touched and honored: not only by the journal’s impressive history—its record of stories anthologized in Best American Short Stories, Best American Non-Required Reading, The O. Henry Prize Stories, and the Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses—but by the amount of respect, warmth, and goodwill awaiting the magazine upon its return, which speak volumes for the talents of our predecessors.
They’ll even be at AWP, so you can welcome them back in person.
Submissions that were pending before the hiatus will still be read, according to a thread on the magazine’s Facebook page.
