Check out a relatively new journal that looks pretty cool. Neat statement of purpose. Good design. Looks like someplace you might want to submit. Check out the poetry section. The first issue features poetry by: Matt, Justin, Nick, Chris, Richard, AJ, and David.* That's all.

Look at fiction for comparison. Authors are Dan, Jack, and Mike.

Look at the contributors page. LITERALLY ALL MEN. Check the masthead: all men, except OH HEY all the interns are female.

Sigh. The more things change....

No, I will not be submitting there. I will be watching for their next issue, out of (potentially morbid) curiosity. Who knows, maybe it's a fluke. But Jesus.
