Editing at the Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society

I’m pleased to report I have a new job. No, it’s not a paying position, nor is it a full-time occupation -- though being the obsessive-compulsive type, who knows? -- but it’s still one I am eager to take on.

Recently I was asked to be the politics editor of the Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society, a journal edited by Ginger Mayerson. (Mayerson may be familiar to Rittenhouse readers through her association with The Hackenblog.) I was honored by the invitation and I accepted it immediately and with appreciation.

The JLHLS is out with its third issue. The latest number includes: “Explorations in Rye: Searching for Miss Mapp,” by Kathryn L. Ramage; “A Visit with J.F. Elouardio,” by Maxwell Maxfield; “Orchard Two” and “Two-Loon Blessing,” by Geoff Fernald; “Domestika,” by Kathy LaFollett; “The Moon Asks a Tough Question,” by Mick Harrigan; “Don’t Panic!” by Kitty Johnson; “It’s in Your Head” (Part 2), by Donatella DelBono; “These Poets,” by Mick Harrigan; “Naked Flying Babes,” by Ginger Mayerson; and “An Interview with Brooke McEldowney,” also by Mayerson.

You can read the JLHLS online or download the latest and previous issues in Acrobat PDF format.

The Journal’s editorial policy and submission guidelines can be found here. The deadline for submissions for the next issue is July 1.

And just to prove how contemporary and savvy the LHLS and its journal are, they have their own blog: The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society Authors and Editors Weblog.

Just rolls off your tongue, doesn’t it?

Only kidding. It’s worth your time.

I hope you will join me in supporting the JLHLS.
