As late fall begins to deepen into winter, we at LR have been rolling up our sleeves and starting to make preparations for Issue 4. Here are a few announcements to let you know what else we’ve been up to recently, and what we are planning for the next few weeks:
We are thrilled to announce that LR is now officially listed both in Poets & Writers‘ Literary Magazines Database and on New Pages! Thank you very, very much to both P&W and the New Pages staff for reaching out to us and making this possible.
Reading Period for Issue 4 Closes on Dec. 21st
A reminder that our current reading period (for Issue 4) will close on December 21st. We are still looking for original poems, translation work, and lots, and lots of art to feature in the issue, so please do consider sending something our way! Our submission guidelines can be found here. (Our submissions form proper can be accessed via the button at the bottom of the guidelines page).
Upcoming Holiday Hiatus
As usual, we will be taking a little break from the blog at the end of the year to celebrate the holidays with our families and to regroup as we work on Issue 4. We’ll officially begin our hiatus on December 21st, when the reading period closes, and will return in mid-January (our current hope is to have the issue out by the beginning of February). Never fear, though—we won’t leave you high and dry with nothing to read! As per tradition, will be running our annual staff picks post with a list of recommended titles from 2011 just before we break: we bet you’ll be so busy reading while we’re gone, you’ll barely even miss us.

That’s it for now. We have a lot of exciting content planned for the next few weeks, including a couple of reviews and an interview with a special guest, so keep your eyes peeled as we head into the final stretch of posts for 2011. In the meantime, please keep those submissions rolling in. We look forward to seeing what you’ve been writing!
