From Jeffrey Lependorf, Executive Director, Council of Literary Magazines and Presses

Dear CLMP Publishers,

We are making a last ditch appeal for horror stories created by the most recent postal rate case. If you would take just a few minutes and outline the problems created by this massive increase, they can be very helpful to our effort. Note that we are looking for stories about how both the PERIODICALS RATE and/or the BULK RATE changes affecting you. There will be parties using your letters representing various aspects of the postal rate hikes, so we want to hear about both.

As I reported previously to you, we are helping the consortium of folks pursuing a Senate Hearing after the Congressional Hearing. The hope is to get the rates revised in a future Rate case.

Please send your letters ASAP to . Even a single paragraph letter is helpful. If you have any questions, please contact John Bell (), who is coordinating this effort (thanks, John!).

Thanks for your support -- it's not too late for things to change for the better, but we need as much participation as possible for it to happen!

Best,

Jeffrey

"CUE is expanding. In the coming year we'll be moving away from print and towards an on-line format. Away from publishing prose poetry exclusively and towards a more inclusive format that embraces both prose poetry and lineated work. We're also starting a chapbook press, CUE Editions, that will publish limited-edition, hand-made chapbooks." Mark Horosky's Let It Be Nearby will be the first book in Cue's new chapbook series.

Of course, we sometimes pay attention to other blogs that metion NewPages, but there is a great deal more being said here that I wish librarians, English dept. folk who can bend a librarian's ear and just readers in general would make note of and act on. Schneider, author of the blog Free Range Librarian, tackles reasons librarians cite for not subscribing to lit mags, including cost and "they're online." Below are excerpts - got to the site, read it, send it to the people you know who make these decisions - or print it, hand it to them in person, and say, "Let's talk about this."

The statue on the green: the fate of small literary journals
October 7, 2007 at 5:28 pm by K.G. Schneider

"Most literary journals run about $20 - $50 a pop per year–enough to give casual readers pause, as Stephen King recently observed, but far less than the titles that librarians are talking about when they say serials are expensive. A fairly comprehensive subscription to the Canon could be had for a couple thou a year, which is chump change against the scale of most academic serial budgets. I haven’t run the numbers, but I’m confident you could go hog wild and subscribe to everything on the newpages.com list of print literary mags and still spend less than you would for one of the top ten high-priced journals at Williams College."

Canteen: The literary magazine that comes with instructions.

"Interest in reading literature has been eclipsed by interest in how and why literature is made. At least that’s how we explain why it’s easier to earn money teaching creative writing than practicing it. Add the ascendance of the memoir over the novel, scandal over plot, biography over oeuvre, and you realize something: It’s no longer enough just to experience the arts—we want to be part of their creation.

"Canteen aims to engage readers with both the arts and the creative process. In this inaugural issue, Andrew Sean Greer confesses to his early novels, the first written at age 10; Po Bronson examines a suicide attempt by a reader; Julie Orringer and Ryan Harty make couple’s poetry from a kit; and Dennis Leary pulls off his chef’s jacket to design restaurants of the future."

Canteen accepts poetry, fiction, nonfiction, essays, commentary, and individual or portfolio artwork.

From Jeoslyn Roebuck: "Plankton was born out of the Virginia Tech tragedy and seeks to showcase new and emerging artists, poets and writers. Each issue will reflect a different angle of creativity. The first issue is designed more or less as a concept album that crafts of story of its own out of eachi individually accepted submission." Plankton is published quarterly and is available as a full-color, full-text PDF (takes several minutes to download). Plankton accepts poetry and art submisisons.

Quarterly 'Hopkins Review' will launch this month

From Greg Rienzi's contribution to The JHU Gazette:

"Dormant for more than five decades, The Hopkins Review makes a triumphant return to the literary landscape this fall.

"The original Hopkins Review was launched in 1947 by the Writing Seminars, then called the Department of Writing, Speech and Drama. The literary magazine back then was a thin paperback volume that sold for 25 cents a copy. Acclaimed novelist and short-story writer John Barth, a Writing Seminars alumnus and later a JHU faculty member, published his first story in its pages, which also included the works of such celebrated poets as Richard Wilbur and E.E. Cummings.

"The magazine eventually languished due to a lack of funds and a dwindling number of full-time faculty in the department. It folded in 1953.

"The 190-page quarterly literary magazine will publish fiction; poetry; memoirs; essays on literature, drama, film, the visual arts, music and dance; and reviews of books in all these areas, as well as reviews of performances and exhibits."
