It seems ironic- considering this magazine is all for experimentation and the strange- that The Drowning Gull, being a new literary magazine, is still in its experimental stages.
I’ve reached the conclusion that it would be better for us to publish biannually rather than every two months. I can only assume the schedule must be confusing readers if its confusing me.
Any submissions received before May will still be published in May; but there will be no submissions published after that until December. It seems appropriate because I can publish in two issues rather than struggle for submissions to publish every two months.
I’m also going to make submission periods ongoing. You can still submit something through May, but accepted pieces submitted from May onwards won’t be published until December issue.
Regardless of these changes, I’ll still be collating two proper issue of the magazine (not just posting in a blog format) per year. Some works will be selected to feature as examples of the sort of work we like to publish.
Does this make sense? If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us or comment below.
