No, this isn’t an April Fool’s Day joke. Really!

We’ve decided to make a small adjustment to Crossed Genres Magazine’s schedule. Crossed Genres is closed for submissions for the month of April. Submissions will re-open on May 1. Genres for the rest of the year are now posted on the Current Genre page. The next 3 upcoming genres will be: Heroes/Heroines, Sidekicks/Minions, and Villains.

This is something we’ve been thinking about for some time. CGM’s publishing year has always been one month off from the calendar year, with the final issue of a year of the zine being published in November. This adjustment will shift that year’s final issue to December, aligning CGM’s schedule with the calendar year.

This will also serve to give us our first break from submissions in over 2 1/2 years! And give our slush readers a well-deserved respite.

Issue #29 (Mystery) will be released within the next couple of days, and Issue #30 (Luck) will be released on May 1. There will be no issue released in June (*gasp!*), but the second Quarterly will be released June 1! Then our releases will resume their regular monthly schedule on July 1.

We apologize for the abruptness of this change – it took us by surprise too, in all honesty. But it’s a welcome alteration that will help us run CG more smoothly. Thanks for being patient!
