Edify Fiction's Assistant Editor, Michele McMillan-Holified's story, 'Everything Out of Reach', was published this month in Whale Road Review. Read it online http://www.whaleroadreview.com/mcmillan-holifield/

Husband, thank you for tolerating my mild obsession with eggs. You are a good man to straighten the decorative nests that have taken up residence on your bedside table, and for agreeably hanging my egg-themed artwork in the kitchen: blue, pink, brown eggs snuggly fitted in their twiggy cradles.

Friends, we're so excited that you can now read Intermediate Teacher and Master Class Student Phil Ivory's flash fiction "Daytime People" out now in Edify Ficti...on. The link will take you directly to his story in the current issue. Some of you may recognize this story from our 2016 Reading Twin Palms at Antigone Books (and other of you will recognize it as a response to the Harrington exercise--see, your Writers Studio exercises can go on to do great things!). Also, link got messy, but here is the right one: http://online.anyflip.com/lxwv/nndo/mobile/index.html#p=8

Our newest assistant editor is Michelle McMillan-Holifield. She helps provide paid critiques, is our lead editor here on poetry submissions, and works the same long, nutty hours as us. She's a published writer herself (she knows your angst!). Take a peek at one of her most recently published pieces, "The Blue Egger".

The Oxford comma wins in a court of law...

Who cares about the Oxford comma? That’s a $10 million question.

So you submitted something and you haven't heard from us. Why is that?

- We read it and we're on the fence (this can be for many reasons... too similar to another story, topic that's been overdone, the editor was in a bad mood that day and wanted to give it another chance, it needs more editing than normal, it really is a great piece but probably not exactly for our magazine and we hate turning it away)

- One of us read it and wanted a second opinion from another editor

...

- We're busily working on the April edition and have put reading down for a bit

If you submitted it before March 8th, it falls into one of the first two categories. If you submitted March 8 or after, it falls into the last one.

You should rest assured, we feel privileged to read *all* your submissions, whether we accept them or not.

We will be publishing poetry by Gerard Sarnat in an upcoming edition of Edify Fiction. He's been published in a number of journals and is a 2016 Pushcart nominee. You can check out more of his work on his website: http://gerardsarnat.com/

We are reading through more great submissions! Here are a few standard formatting tips you should follow when submitting anywhere (unless they give specific instructions contrary to these):

Double space your story
Number the pages
Give it a meaningful title on the first page...
Give it at least a 1 inch margin all the way around
Font size should be 12 point
Don't justify margins - let the type wrap naturally

These make your story easier to read so editors are focused on your content, not your formatting. You don't want an editor to discard your work because they get too frustrated with the formatting to finish reading it. Happy submitting!
