Thank you for all the e-mails expressing concern over whether Wild Violet was still publishing. This issue ran into numerous production delays, for which I profusely apologize.
Contest Winners to Be Announced in Spring Issue
The judges are making their final selections, and the Wild Violet contest winners will be announced and published in conjunction with the Spring issue.
Wild Violet Redesign Under Construction
With the help of our new Web designer (who also happens to be my husband), Wild Violet will soon have a new look and more interactivity.
Details are still being worked out, but the new design will allow for a Wild Violet community, which should include options such as reader feedback, arts bulletins, and regular content which will appear between issues.
Wild Violet is currently looking for volunteer bloggers to write about art, music, writing, film, theater, or any other aspect of the creative arts. If you're interested, please write a short cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and include some writing samples. At this point, bloggers will not be paid but will receive exposure to a wide audience.
If you have any ideas about things that Wild Violet should include in the redesign, please e-mail email@example.com. As a response to some prior comments, let me assure you that we will continue to include graphics for each piece, but the number of graphics per each piece will probably be smaller, which will expedite our production process.
