Well, it's taken a bit, but issue 13 of the APJ is finally out.
And now it's time to start looking for a new person to take over the APJ. I'm not killing the magazine because I've loved it too much to do such a thing, but I am going to be looking for someone to take it over. The editorial staff has resigned, I have moved on to the daily chores of running Verse Daily and working on the publishing schedule for Dream Horse Press. So there isn't time for the APJ as much as I would like there to be time.
Some of you know I have a lot of hats and jobs and name tags and badges and whatnots that say I do this and I do that. So the APJ has suffered for not being something that has a clear demand and a deadline which gave it a lower priority. I know someone with a talented eye (and more importantly: ear) is out there and could take on the challenge of running the APJ proper. So to that end, I'm looking for someone to do just that. If you are interested, drop me a line either in facebook, or at bearlaughing ((at)) yahoo ((dot)) com. You might include a resume. You might tell me about your love of poetry. All very helpful. Yes, indeed.
Thanks all for your patience, particularly the contributors to this issue!
