July 3rd, 2014

Astropoetica 11.1: Summer 2014The final issue of Astropoetica: Mapping the Stars through Poetry is now up, featuring:

I have felt incredibly privileged to work with so many talented poets these past eleven years. Together we have built a true library of astronomy poetry, one which I hope new stargazers will continue to stumble upon and read and love for years to come.

I am grateful for every line, every image. Thank you all for sharing this journey with me.

Ad astra,

Editor, Astropoetica

The Update Before the Update

July 1st, 2014

Alas, it’s been far too long since I last updated here. The good news is that I have sent out all proofs, and the next issue will be going up shortly. The less happy news is that the next issue shall be the last issue. It’s time.

I have sent all final acceptances of submitted work. I am endeavoring to contact everyone else individually, but if you have submitted work to Astropoetica and have not heard from me, you should consider your submission released. I hope your work finds a good home and that you continue to write with an eye to the stars.

More to come…

She says she’s not dead

October 14th, 2013

I’m here. Buried to my neck and battling plague on all fronts, but still here.

I am quite behind on Astropoetica work, so I am closing to new submissions as of today. I’m working through the backlog, and assuming the plague does not mutate yet again, I hope to publish the long overdue next issue soon.

Thank you all for your patience.

Astropoetica Update: Summer 2012

July 18th, 2012

Proofs for the epically delayed summer issue are finally out. Assuming I don’t go into labor tonight (please not tonight), everyone should be able to enjoy new astropoetry soon.

I have responded to much of the submissions backlog, but I do have final decisions to make on a few older pieces. Hopefully I will be able to respond to all of these before my son arrives, but I may need to abuse your patience a bit longer.

Astropoetica Fall Update

November 20th, 2010

Yes, we’re still here, and the next issue is nearly complete – hurrah! I’m still waiting to clear a few last details, but I should be sending out proofs shortly.

Current submitters should know that I do have a bit of a submissions backlog that I am working to cut down to size. I’m pulling some strings, so hopefully I’ll be caught up after the holiday weekend.

Thanks for everyone’s patience and understanding. I’m truly grateful.
