Weave's First Week

It's been an amazing first week here at Weave Magazine. Margaret and I are humbled by the response from both old and new friends and we'd like to thank a few people who have really spread the word. Thanks so much to Brooklyn Copeland-Johnson of Taiga for not only linking to Weave on the Taiga website, but also for writing up a nice little intro on her personal blog. Also for sending so many people over to our Facebook group. Many thanks also to Emily of Warbler Zine for linking to our site from theirs! I think making these kinds of connections, however virtual they may seem, can only improve and strengthen the artistic community.

We are also somewhat overwhelmed (in a good way!) by the number of submissions we've received in just the first week. I know I get excited to just check the inbox each day to see what new literary nuggets we have waiting for us. Keep them coming - feel free to pass along the submission guidelines to friends and family.

We hope to update the blog often so you can feel a part of our transition into the new world of literary mag editing. As editors of Weave, we really want you to get a feel for our personalities and tastes to better help with the submission process. We also want you to know that we are an open community here; Weave wants to build connections between artists, writers, and readers. That is our mission and we hope that you'll contact us if you have any questions.

So thanks again to everyone out there who has supported our fledgling magazine and we look forward to future submissions.

Laura and Margaret
editors, Weave Magazine


  1. It's really encouraging that you've gotten such a fast and positive response:) I'm very excited to see my first issue.

  2. re: Thanks-- You're so welcome! :-)

    re: use of the word "nugget" in your post to describe something other than a chicken mc-- That's just the kind of daring the world of small poetry press needs, ladies!


  3. Hey, I saw you via Brooklyn's blog (if there was a market for poetry PR, she would have it cornered), but wanted to throw in my hat and say rock on. I'm very excited for all these new mags lately and yours looks like it will be very cool. I shall link you on At-Large as well.

  4. Good luck with your new mag. It's definitely worth the effort.
