Exhale Literary Magazine – a sister magazine

June 16, 2016

Dear Writers, Readers, Poets and Artists,

For the last year and a half I have been the Editor of Exhale Literary Magazine, an online magazine devoted to providing a space of creative expression for and by those in the adoption, loss, and infertility community.

If you are already a reader of Exhale, you may have noticed our site under construction or our most recent update stating that we have some exciting changes in the works. Today I am overjoyed to announce that Exhale Literary Magazine is merging with Still Standing.

Exhale and Still Standing share a mission to bring an honest voice to our readers, and both Franchesca Cox and I believe strongly that our formats will be a complement to one another.

For those of you who are not yet familiar with Exhale, we are a quarterly literary magazine that features poetry, short fiction, book reviews, essays, photography, and artwork.

We will be sharing the content of our most recent issue, Continuity and Expansion, with you once our site is established over the coming weeks, and will also be the new home of Still Standing’s Poetry Sunday, as well as weekly book reviews. Submissions can be sent to exhalesubmissions@gmail.com with “Poetry Sunday” or “Weekly Book Review” in the subject line. There is no set theme for these submissions so long as they are relevant to the loss and/or infertility experience.

Additionally, we invite your submissions of short fiction, essays, poetry, book reviews, and artwork for our late summer issue with the theme of change by July 15th to exhalesubmissions@gmail.com. You can also follow updates about the transition over on twitter or on Still Standing Magazine’s Facebook Page.

The staff of Exhale and I are very excited about this merge and look forward to reading, sharing, and exhaling with you.
