Here at Stoneboat, we're trying something new this year: a Black Friday sale.
Before you groan and roll your eyes and wonder what the world is coming to when literary journals jump on the commercialism bandwagon, hear us out. At Stoneboat, our goal is pretty simple. We want to put good writing into the hands of the people who love it. That's it, and it's in that spirit that we've decided to have a sale. It isn't about raking in oodles of cash; it's about trying to reach a broader audience and getting broader exposure for our contributors.
"Lovely," you say, "but what's the sale?"
We're glad you asked. For one day only, we are offering a special deal, three issues for a mere $25: the current issue (which includes a special graphic literature section), the spring issue (which will include an interview with Art of Fielding author Chad Harbach), and the Fall 2014 issue (which is so far on the horizon that we have no idea what its claim to fame will be).
If I'm doing my math correctly, which I might not be, this is a savings of 18% off the cover price, so take advantage of it. Buy now!!! Seriously, though, it is a good deal, and you'll get a year and a half's worth of good writing delivered straight to your mailbox. What's not to love about that?
We'll open the sale late Thursday night, and it'll be available until late Friday night. Just visit the Stoneboat store during that time frame -- it'll be clear which button to press in order to get the deal. In the meantime, if you've got questions such as, "I already have the Fall issue but would love to buy three additional issues for $25. How can we make this work?", email us: stoneboat.journal @ gmail.com.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
