Dear Readers, Authors, and Artists,
As you turn our thoughts to back-to-school sales, registering for a class or two, maybe finding a new way to use pumpkin spice in our cooking, Curating Alexandria has been thrilled your August included sending off some literary submissions too. Thanks to the generous donation of grant writer Teresa Tillson, we've been able to offer free submissions for the entire month. It turned out to be great timing! As your creepy, suspenseful, monster filled stories have poured in, we've pulled together a fantastic Halloween edition of our journal. You'll find a mix of light hearted works, interspersed with the ax-grinder stories that terrified me as a child.
With this edition we are also happy to introduce staff member Arthur Boyd as curator. As I said, scary stories were never my forte as reader, and I have almost no experience with them as an editor. Arthur has kindly stepped forward to curate this edition, brining his love of the macabre and spooky into the newly titled "Exhuming Alexandria."
As always, thank you for your support, submissions, readership, and enthusiasm for Curating Alexandria.
