Christine, the Fiction Editor, speaking here…
Some of you may have gone to Kartika Review’s main site and seen the notice, “Kartika Review is
suspendedunavailable.” (And thank you to our dear attentive readers who brought this to our attention–thanks to your vigilance, we were able to start the ball rolling on a fix for the problem). No, we haven’t been bad in school and sent home suspended.No, we haven’t taken ourselves off the market. We’re still available. We are, to put it frankly, in the middle of changing hosting services, and it is not going as smoothly as we’d hoped. We desperately need a webmaster/webdesign/webdeveloper, now more than ever. (Any volunteers?)
We are hoping the site will be back up in a few days (I hope I hope I hope)–but in the interim, we are STILL TAKING SUBMISSIONS. Please email all submissions directly to kartika DOT review AT gmail DOT com.
Unfortunately, because of the migration issue, our aliases (i.e., fiction AT kartikareview DOT com, poetry AT kartikareview DOT com, etc.) are NOT WORKING, and so we ask you to email any and all correspondence to kartika DOT review AT gmail DOT com. If you sent us a manuscript after September 15, please RESEND us your manuscript to the gmail DOT com address.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It is our wish to provide you great literature and art and to grow a community, not present you with technical issues!
And for the record–we’re going to have a FANTASTIC Fall 2009 issue. I can feel it in my bones and read it in the slushpile. We’ve got at least one Very Famous APA writer interview for the issue, someone we courted for a year until his schedule opened up for us. Verrry excited. So stay tuned. We’re not going anywhere.
p.s. We want to give a happy shout-out to our new hosting service, Peachy Host, an APA-owned and operated business that is helping us resolve this issue–oh, and I want to make it clear that our site downtime isn’t at all their fault, and that they’re going out of their way to help us out on this matter.
