***August 5, 2015: UPDATE: Life sure did get the “best” of me for a while. I finally have a place to work on the zine and many things have changed for the better. I’m going to be resurrecting this magazine in the next month or so. Due to the overwhelming amount of submissions I currently have to work with, I am going to hold off on accepting anything new right now until I get these sorted out. I’ll have more soon.
~Best, Janice R., editor. ***
9-30-14 – Status update. I still don’t have computer access at my home, other than my phone, so am unable to work on the magazine. I’m probably going to have access after the end of October, beginning of November. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks!
8-20-14 – Hi everyone. Lots of changes and a couple of moves this year have meant that I’ve taken a hiatus. I’m currently without an internet provider. Hope to have that resolved this fall and get back into the swing of things. Can’t wait! I’ll keep you posted.
2-6-13 – The “Once Upon a Time” issue is now available to read. For those of you interested in perusing our earlier issues, I removed the first 2 issues (Issue 1 – Death & Immortality and Issue 2 – Siren Songs) from the menu bar, as having all of that information on the same page was causing the site to take eons to load. Never fear! The pages are still there. You can use the search bar at the top of the menu to type in what you’re looking for and once the search results come up click on the page you like.
11-08-11 — PUSHCART PRIZE NOMINATIONS
As an editor of a small magazine, I am allowed to nominate up to 6 pieces of work for the annual Pushcart Prize. All stories and poetry that have appeared to-date in Scarlet Literary Magazine were considered. Choosing only 6 nominees was not an easy task. After much reading and discussion, my assistant Cathy and I have decided on the following nominees. Congratulations and Best of Luck!

2. C.B. Anderson, for his poem “Love The Day” (Vol. 1. Iss. 2, Siren Songs)
