What then are the seeds of non-spatial distance? That which isolates one from the world? The haunting pieces in cahoodaloodaling’s Winter 2017 edition attempt to unearth the answer…

cahoodaloodaling Changes, Issue Delays & Pushcart Nominations

Dear cahoodaloodalers,
       I was hoping to have better, more cheery news to share, but unfortunately our special issue delay is going to continue for a bit. Kate has sent me an email to  pass on to all of you:

Hello guys. I am here to tender my resignation
from cahoodaloodaling.  The past year has been a mess of liver failure
& cancer & compromised immune systems & a bunch of other technical
sounding crap.  The fact is I cannot reliably keep up my end of
editing & publishing here at cahoodaloodaling.  Our lovely & talented
Raquel Thorne will be in charge until she finds another permanent
editor but I am sure the best will come from here & all the incredible
work everyone continues to send in.  I will miss being a part of the
team & your writing lives.  Love & words to you all.

Kate Hammerich

Kate, who has been the technical brains of our operation, will be sorely missed. Hopefully, at some point in the future, she will be well enough to come back on board as a main editor; however, in the mean time, she has secured us a boon of a guest editor for our upcoming January Issue! (We are still accepting submissions.) It Happened in a Flash will be guest edited by Heather Bell. I’m personally very excited as I’ve been following her poetry escapades for years. Here’s one of my personal favorite interviews.

Heather Bell Heather Bell’s work has been published in Rattle, Grasslimb, Barnwood, Poets/Artists, Red Fez, Ampersand and many others.  She was nominated for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Pushcart Prize from Rattle, won the New Letters 2009 Poetry Prize, and most recently was a finalist for the 2013 Consequence Prize in Poetry.  Heather has also published four books, including one of flash fiction.  Any more details can be found here: http://hrbell.wordpress.com/

 

 
I am also excited to formerly announce our Pushcart Nominations for the year (with links to the issues in which they appeared):

Man in the Moon” by Camille Griep
“Mother’s Back” by Karen Jakubowski
“little worlds” by Art Heifetz
“Little Yellow Horses” by Neil Ellman
“Marianne” by Maude Larke
“Senior Citizens at the Retirement Center Discuss John Ashbery’s ‘More Reluctant’” by Faith Paulsen.

I hope to get our special contest issue up soon, but please bear with me as I learn the technical ropes and while we have staffing changes. Please keep Kate in your thoughts as she continues to battle health issues.  And as always, those of us on staff appreciate getting to read and publish your work.

-Raquel
