Default Raintown on Hiatus

Hi all,

I just learned that the Raintown Review is now on hiatus. I didn't see this announced elsewhere, so I thought I'd post it.

Andrew, how did you learn that it was on hiatus? I just looked at the journal's website and at Duotrope, and neither of them said it was.

Yeah, I think so. It's just really disappointing.

Wish I were more surprised. I haven't been involved in said journal's editing since 2016, so my guess is as good as anybody's as to what's going on.

Yeah, I know it's hard to run a print journal, but it does suck that we've lost another print "formal friendly" one.

Well, funny you should mention that. I contacted Anna, and... I am the next editor. Watch this space.
