editorial by Camille Gooderham Campbell
From the Editors
First, some happy news. Our Executive Editor Jordan Ellinger has become a father — his beautiful little son arrived a couple of weeks ago, and we couldn’t be happier for him and his wife. Congratulations, Jordan & Alicia!
In other news, we still need your support to make our Raygun Chronicles project a reality. We’re halfway there, and with a little less than a week left in our Kickstarter Campaign, there’s no more time for waiting. It’s very doable — other projects have raised more than the $4K we still need in the very last hours of their campaigns — but we need you to back the project and spread the word now. Let’s make this happen!
Finally, we would like to thank Gay Degani for all the time and energy she has put into establishing and developing our craft blogzine for writers, Flash Fiction Chronicles. Gay is stepping down from FFC to focus on her own writing. Jim Harrington is now acting as Interim Managing Editor, with Gay’s support and assistance during the transition period, and we expect to be able to present the new editorial team for FFC in a month from now. Many hands make light work, so if you think you might like to get involved on the editorial staff or as a regular contributor to FFC, please contact us and we’ll pass along your interest to Jim and the new team. Gay, you’ve been fabulous — more than fabulous! — and we wish you the best possible fortune now as you focus on your writing.
For St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th, we’ve got “Cannath’s Coins” by Jude-Marie Green, and then for Easter Sunday at the end of the month we’ll be bringing you “One Loud Easter” by Brendan Bourque-Sheil.
We’ve got Tax Day coming up in April (stories need to be in by March 27th, please!) and then Mother’s Day and Victoria Day in May (stories in by April 26th, and thank you!). We also welcome stories for and about holidays from other cultures and other parts of the world, so please know that you’re strongly encouraged to get inspired by any traditions you may have or festivals you may celebrate.
