Our New Home

Our Move
Friday night our editorial committee met for an important event. We broke our temporary camp at Kathleen's house, picked up, and moved to our new home in the University District of Seattle, above Jack Straw Foundation. Joan Rabinowitz, our new landlord, gave us a friendly welcome at the door. We are still in boxes and the brand new carpet gives off waves of volatile organics, but it feels good to have a warm place to set up our computer and filing cabinet. We even have a bank of windows!

Many, many thanks to Joan and the rest of the Jack Straw board for bending over backwards to make a place for us and our new roommates, Raven Chronicles and Thomas Hubbard. We have room for one more! If you are in the Seattle area, an individual or organization that wants to be part of the literary community, let us know.

Chapbook Competition submissions are now Closed
February 15 has passed and we have begun reading our submissions. If you have submitted a manuscript but have not yet received your self-addressed postcard, don't worry. We're a little less efficient than some years, but you'll hear from us soon. We will be announcing our winner by the end of April.

Pontoon Ten!
We are expecting several boxes of Pontoon Ten, our Anniversary Issue, to arrive by truck any day now. We are very excited about this double issue which combines highlights of last year's chapbook competition along with a retrospective of the first nine issues of Pontoon. More soon...
