The Winds of Change
I gave up my position as Executive Editor. I still work with the magazine, just in a role that I feel I'm better suited for. I took up the position of Poetry Editor and I really couldn't be happier. I'll step back into the executive editor role in a minute if I'm needed, but I feel that the new editor will do a great job, I don't think there will be any problems. I'll still be handing the social media end of things, and doing some website updating and of course, handling the poetry.
I made this change for many reasons, one of which was I felt that Kristina deserved the job more than I did, and I was never really comfortable in it anyway. The other reason is that I have three kids and a life at home to consider. I also have some writing projects I'm working on and I help my author friend Amber Forbes with a lot of her book promotion (and the odd beta read now and then) and I just don't want to keep my plate too full all the time. If there is anything I don't like, it's over committing and then dropping the ball. The new team is going to be a good one because we play off our strengths, and mine is poetry. It just made sense to me to make this change.
So if you're a writer, or a reader, you should go take a look at The Corner Club Press. There's lots of great stories and poetry in there (and it's free)
