There are a lot of reasons this issue was delayed so long. I’ll sum them up by saying that a lot of life has happened to everyone who helps out with InDigest and that we’re all doing this because we love the writing we’re publishing. Moving on.
You’ll notice we aren’t dumping the full issue onto the site at once like we have been doing for the last six years. We are going to start posting one piece per weekday from the new issue until we’ve posted the entire thing. We’re hoping this gives us a chance to better highlight the poems and stories in each issue. We pick each piece of writing that we publish carefully. We believe each poem and story to be worth your time to read, so we’re going to take the time to really highlight each one for you going forward. (Not that we didn’t care before, but I don’t feel that adhering to the “issue” format of print publications is the best way for writing that is published online to find its way into readers eyes. We want each poem, story, confession, podcast, image, video, collage, or “other” to be seen by as many readers who enjoy this kind of writing as possible.)
Anyhow, I hope we’re back on a regular schedule over here now and that you will be hearing from us as frequently as you used to. Thanks, as always, for reading/listening/thinking. We love you.
Let us know what you think of the new format, the new issue, our new hairstyles, our new drapes. Comment on the site, tweet to us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, send a carrier pigeon, use a payphone, whatever. We’d like to know what you think.
