    Sure is! Because of New Year etc I’m not going to publish issue 6 until the 7th of January. So you still have until the 27th of December to submit. Plenty of time!! 🙂

    Hi Ana,
    I just wanted to say thank you for submitting your beautiful poems to The Paperbook Collective this year. It was a pleasure to publish them, and I hope you will continue to submit some work in 2014! Have a wonderful holiday season.

    There are so many things to enjoy on your site! The bi-lingual poetry, the “notes and texts” marginalia, and most of all the quality of your writing. Respect.

    It is a pleasure to have come across your blog, and perhaps this entry in particular, though your thoughts on Cortazar also had me reading. Best, William Eaton, montaigbakhtinian.com
