Small Spiral Notebook to cease publication



I just received an extremely sad e-mail from Felicia Sullivan, editor and publisher of the wonderful online and print journal Small Spiral Notebook. As she says:

"After six years of publication, articles in major newspapers and magazines (NYT, New Yorker, Poets & Writers, Utne, Time Out NY, just to name a few) and solicitations from top agents and publishers, which have helped our writers score agents and book deals, I'm sad to announce that SSN will cease publication on 12.31.07. This was a very difficult decision for me to make, however, it was one that I felt was best for the journal. We will continue to publish reviews, interviews & features until the end of the year, and the site will remain online indefinitely. We will publish a final print issue in 2009. Subscriptions will be fulfilled.

I want to thank you all for your unwavering, wonderful support and for reading! I’d also like to extend a special thanks to my wonderful staff. SSN wouldn’t be where it is today without my incredible and devoted team of editors, reviewers, feature writers and readers. My humble thanks.

Small Spiral Notebook has long been on of the brightest stars in the online literary universe and I both congratulate Felicia for the work she's done and wish her the best in the future. I should also note that SSN just scored several notable mentions in this year's Best American Short Stories and Best American Non Required Reading. Felicia says people can keep track of her in the future through her website.
