Exciting times

Exciting times at Prole. Content for issue one has been finalised and just as soon as our shiny new ISSN arrives we’ll be going to print. (Why does that take at least thirty days?) We aim to publish during May. Details will follow.
We remain open for submissions for Issue 2. Please note, submission guidelines have changed and we no longer accept reprints or simultaneous submissions. What hasn’t changed is the way we’d like submissions to be formatted. I assume our contributors are a literate bunch and it does clearly set out on our website how we’d like text presented. That being the case, why was it that about 70% of submissions did not follow guidelines, leading to a lot of extra work and swearing when setting up the final proof?
It may interest you to know that we are open to a small number of advertisements to be placed in Issue 1 and also on the website. ‘Subtle’ and ‘advertising’ are not easy bed-fellows, but please don’t ask for something spread across the cover or homepage – that isn’t going to happen.
As ever, for full details about everything, visit the website:
