The (ex) New Yorker

saul steinbergWell, the world is large enough even for us. As we begin at the proverbial beginning, we take this opportunity to thank Martha’s Version for all their hard work and support in making all this possible. The blogosphere may not be as prestigious as the gilded pages of the New Yorker or Harper’s, but it can hold its own. And if you’ve ever aspired to publish in those places, you will have noticed the same names appearing month after month after month–genug! Enough, we say. Make room for us, too. We may never boast their readership, but we will not grow old and grey waiting for John Updike to keel over and leave his twenty lines to us greenhorns. So if you are a poet in exile you are welcome to send us some of your work. You will be happy that the New Yorker didn’t reject it.
