Important changes to Decanto from February 2013

I would like to bring to your attention the Decanto changes for 2013. As of February 2013, we will be changing from 6 editions per year to 4. This is mainly due to workload as it is a very tight schedule and involves a lot of work to get the editions ready every two months Not only that, but changing it to 4 editions means that subscriptions will be slightly cheaper. We are constantly trying to think of ways of aiding Decanto’s survival, and as you are aware, with the continuing postal charges and other costs rising, we have to strive to make Decanto sustainable for the future.

This change won’t affect those of you who have already subscribed, as the money paid will be carried over. All submissions for the April edition 2013 will be placed in the May edition instead. The 4 editions per year will be February, May, August, November. We are aware of how pushed for space we already are, and of course losing the two extra editions per year will mean that we will have to be extra selective in choosing from the hundreds of submissions we receive. Please don’t take this personally if your work is not selected, but we will of course be losing 160 pages in this cut back, so space will be even tighter. Thank you all for your continued support and I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.

Best Wishes - L M Stewart (editor)
