There’s something about a letter that goes beyond a note, an email, a text. Perhaps it’s the symbolic offering of a letter that carries more meaning than other forms of communication. Perhaps it’s because letters are so much more personal, more directive, and much more substantial that I find myself overwhelmed with the beautiful stories and narratives of the submissions process.
For those of you waiting, hold on a little more. The letters are moving and moving through them with the respect and care that they deserve is a privilege, but also a demanding privilege. It’s taking time.
If you submitted, you should receive an email from me by mid-December.
Until than, a million thank yous for your bravery and healing.
With careful hands,
