The Starlight SciFaiku Review, Summer 2021 (issue #1)

Page 11 — Origin Story

This publication saw a significant increase in submissions after being added to the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association’s “Speculative Poetry Markets” list — and I earnestly hope that this is just the beginning. We are listed in Authors Publish magazine’s “40 New Literary Magazines for July 2021” and Duotrope has us listed now, with others to follow. We also appear in some smaller lists on Twitter, like No Wasted Ink‘s “SciFi/Fantasy Magazines” list — which was the first we’d been added to. As such, this publication is gaining some traction in getting noticed which means more submissions.

A quick note, I am stylistically inspired by the no-frills beauty and appreciate the editorial voice of the literary journal Prune Juice, circa 2017, with Editor Steve Hodge.

Starship Sloane Publishing is in the process of applying for an ISSN for The Starlight SciFaiku Review, this first issue will provide the published product necessary to most efficiently attain that number and will be added post-publication.
