As I write, the September issue should be on its way (late) to you, and the October issue is almost ready for printing. Thus, we look ahead to November, the month of our beloved publisher’s birth (and that of many other dear Scorpions). Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness? Season of death and darkness? The title of my favorite Flaubert novel, the month before December?

In honor of such auspicious richness of flavor and chiaroscuro, please send us your most complexly variegated texts and images.

Essays, letters, poems, pictures, visions, stories.

We are, as usual, interested in the crux where utility and beauty meet, in questions of how to be most alively human amid so much that is deadening, in the tension between wildness and civilization, democratic participation and imagination, art and politics, and any ideas about how to make all people’s (and animals’) lives more meaningful in the Lake Champlain Bio-Region and Beyond.

Prose texts should be 750 words or less to fit on one page, or 1500 words or less to fit on two.
Images are subject to cropping or the superimposition of words.

Let us know if you have any questions, comments, complaints.

For November, I need submissions by around October 10th, emailed to
And no, we don’t pay. Apologies.

Most Fondly,

Genese Gorilekova
