Sunday Jul 14

Meg2014-5 August is the month of the retrospective at Connotation Press. A month to look back and acknowledge all the exceptional work that has come our way in the last year from September 2013 up through July 2014. I am always blown away by the stellar work that has been published. It’s an extraordinary blend of stories, novel excerpts and flash fiction, not to mention all the brilliant poetry, non-fiction and other exemplary columns in every issue. 

Ken Robidoux makes everything and anything possible with Connotation Press. I am honored to be a part of the incredible group of editors in this outstanding bi-monthly magazine and press whose wings are ever expanding and continuously taking flight. In the last year Ken has published the exquisite ekphrastic collection by the brilliant artist, Matt Tuite, and seventeen writers in Smoking Mirrors, and the mesmerizing fiction collection, The Dark Sunshine, by the inimitable Len Kuntz. Ken is always recreating the breadth and expansion of CP and no one gives more LOVE to all of the contributors in every issue he publishes. He is the epitome of LOVE, SUPPORT and the true meaning of FAMILY! Thank you, Ken, for your never-ending commitment to each person behind the pen and your YOU that gives so much, lives for ART in the true sense of what that means: to write because we can’t not write. And to expect nothing in return except a place, a refuge, to showcase that work in all its glory. That is Connotation Press

I so appreciate all of the writers who send their work our way. I want to include everyone we have published this last year, but we are only allotted so much space. So, I want to say to all of you: Congratulations! Thank you again for trusting CP with your work. Please keep sending us your stories! You make Connotation Press what it is: an exciting magazine with innovative and superlative work. 

Here is the list of fiction writers for 2013-2014 and the links to their stories that have been singled out for the retrospective. Again, congratulations to all!
