Sabrina,

They sent out an email a little while ago saying they are working to get non-profit status to help find additional funding sources. They also said they're going to publish less frequently.

I get the impression that the people behind it are educators and didn't totally understand the business side of selling a magazine. It looks like they may be on a hiatus regarding submissions. You might want to get on their mailing list for news when they start buying again.

I hope they sort things out because I think they create a quality product.

Hope this helps,
Kate

Kate,

Thanks so much for your reply. It helps a lot! I will get on their email list so I can receive their updates. I hope they are able to sort things out as well.

Thanks again,
Sabrina

Thanks for sharing!

I've been learning  about the company and reading the digital issues of the magazine. It seems like a wonderful magazine, and I'd love to submit my illustrations to them. I have not been able to find an official submissions page though. For those of you who have submitted, were you able to track down their submission guidelines, or did you submit through their contact page?

Thanks for your help! :thankyou

I like the way you think, Julie, with more plot complications.

Exactly!!

Thanks everyone!! You all rock! I now know what to do and I have the perfect 'bad guy' in my WIP to place blame on.

I loved the proximity to cat graph, the maps, the venn diagram of different apps for chatting, and the timeline at the very end. Too funny!
Enjoy! I just turned in an assignment and this is what happens  ;D

I may be off track, but if it's a work of fiction you could say it has no fish because of local environmental issues (eg pollution runoff from a factory, dredging nearby which destroyed the breeding grounds, or whatever it's called when shipping companies dig up the substrate to deepen the channels nearby. If these aren't too "heavy", that is.)

I assume it has to be a cove? The seawall is important? There are other bodies of fishless water (ie cuts from open coal mining - there is one in atlantic canada that has been well stocked with goldfish. Be cause it's not a naturally ocurring body of water the fish were quite a surprise.)
