We’re happy for you to order a single issue, but note that it may take some weeks for you to receive it. We do not have an Amazon-like fulfillment house, but rather handle single issues ourselves out of our office. We may be slow to process these orders, especially during summer or holidays. In addition, we ship via USPS media mail, which is, at best slow, and, at worst, terribly unreliable. We regret that we must ship via media mail, but it’s the only way that we can keep costs reasonable, as first-class mail or UPS charges nearly three times as much. We will ship again if you don’t receive your order within six weeks, but please don’t contact us sooner than that.
Back issues are less expensive than the current issue and are a great teaching tool, as well as offering those interesting in submitting a way to get to know our magazine. They are available for $5 or $10 (depending on whether you order a single or double issue). To order for a class/group of students or for yourself, use the Back Issues Order Form. In order to encourage submitting writers to familiarize themselves with our publication before submitting, we also offer back issues at a discounted writer rate through Submittable.
