Hello Sharp Sharps,

What riches in our mailbox! A golden and gleaming thanks to everyone who has already submitted. For those of you still waiting for responses: hold tight, we'll be with you as soon as we can.

For those who haven't yet submitted, why -- as the saying goes -- not? We're looking for crystalline prose of both the truthing (nonfiction) and lying (fiction) sorts, particularly, and also visual art. You poets are really on top of things. Proseurs, are you really going to let those lineated muffins best you?

A note on the side

We're gender-blind types when it comes to the ol' pile, but we have noticed that there's been vastly more fiction submitted by men than women this time around. Just something we wonder about. Anyone know how come?

Okay now, kidlets. Let's do this thing. You have seven days or thereabouts to send us your magic ( Get. On. It.

Fondly (with Pixels Burnt into Our Retinas Already),
Super Arrow

Better than Jack-O-Lanterns*

Check it: our deadline for Issue 3 will pitter-patter up more quickly than you think. Send us your words, your art, your w/arts, and all, lickety-split. We want this more than anything.

You have until Halloween! Chuck that subtly wry costume sewing project for a sec and send us your files! Everyone else was gonna show up as __________ anyway! Costumes are overrated. Online journals are not.

Mosey on over to for more hot hot data.

Please & With Feeling,
Super Arrow

...get it? Like, the point of an arrow?

Dear Archers,

POINT: This fall has been a breathless tumble of travel and words. We took part in the Slash Pine Writer's Hike and, in teaching, tripped right over the beginning of the semester and into the thick of things. As a result of a schedule that looks more like stream of consciousness by a celebrity alien than an organized system of dates, times and activities, things have slowed a bit down here at the target. Now we're back, at attention, and ready to fire Issue 3 at the world just shy of NYE.

SO, COUNTERPOINT: Please consider submitting before our Issue 3 deadline of Halloween 2010. Big things are in store. And don't forget the collaborations assignment, which can be found HERE. We want your fine, fine work. There is so much admirable labor-art in the world. Send it to us.

And to jog y'all's memories, submission guidelines are here.

PS: We will be attending the NonfictionNOW conference in Iowa City in November. That reminds us, nonfiction writers, please send us your words. We are particularly interested in experimental forms, lyric essays, new modes of documentary writing....If you're at the conference, please say hello!
