Profiles and Senior Editor Christina Consolino was thrilled that her essay, "Disacknowledgments," found a home with the Brevity Blog.


Devin Pope published the poem, "Ankle Specialist,"  in AZ Central's Poetry Spot. She also has three pieces forthcoming (April 2019) in the journal Write On, Downtown.


Rudri Bhatt Patel published the piece, "A Phoenix Urban Garden Provides At-Risk Individuals a Path Forward," in Civil Eats. She also published the essay, "I'm Raising an Only Child - And I'm a Mother Like Any Other," in Your Teen Magazine.


Fiction Editor Colleen Kearney Rich had her chapbook, Things You Won't Tell Your Therapist, published by Finishing Line Press in January.


Jamie Sumner is happy to announce her two-book deal with Atheneum/Simon & Schuster following her debut middle grade novel, Roll With It, in October of 2019.

From Publishers Weekly: “Reka Simonsen at Atheneum has bought two middle grade novels by Jamie Sumner. The Survival Playlist is the story of 12-year-old Lou Montgomery, a talented singer with a flighty, fame-hungry mother and an undiagnosed sensory processing disorder that makes performing nearly unbearable. Publication is scheduled for fall 2020, with a second, untitled novel to follow in fall 2021.”
