We have finished voting on our April issue and sent out all the acceptance and rejection letters. We went with ten stories this quarter, which is more than usual. It seemed fitting since we'll be cutting back on stories July onwards due to the raise in pay rates. Consider it one last hurrah!
This is the last you'll hear about the April issue until it debuts on April 30th. If you don't yet have a subscription, now is the time: http://www.wingedhalo.com/subscribe.html. All funds help support the magazine, and we need more funds than ever to fund our upcoming pay rate increase. We also accept donations in any amount. We have donation buttons at the bottom of every page of our website. You can also support us by purchasing merchandise from one of our stores: http://www.wingedhalo.com/shop.html
The staff will be taking a week off before we begin reviewing July's slush pile. As of now, we have 35 submissions in the slush pile, received on or after March 2nd. We will continue to accept submissions while we're on break. We will post another slush update after we've gone through the first batch of submissions, in a few weeks.
