Due to the personal obligations of Wild Violet editor Alyce Wilson, we’ve taken a couple weeks off from publishing. Get ready for a giant Valentine of an issue, as next week’s offerings will approach love from a variety of angles.

In addition, we’re doing something special for the first time. If you’d like to send a Valentine’s Day message to a friend, loved one, colleague, or literary idol, tweet @WildVioletMag with the hashtag #wvlove or e-mail, and we’ll share those messages on Valentine’s Day.


Alyce Wilson is the editor of Wild Violet and in her copious spare time writes humor, non-fiction, fiction and poetry, keeps an online journal, and is working on a book, Belated Mommy: How to Cope With Being an Older Mom. Her first chapbook, Picturebook of the Martyrs; her e-book/pamphlet, Stay Out of the Bin! An Editor's Tips on Getting Published in Lit Mags (which she plans to update this year); her book of essays and columns, The Art of Life; and her humorous nonfiction ebook, Dedicated Idiocy: How Monty Python Fandom Changed My Life, can all be ordered from her Web site, She lives with her husband and son in the Philadelphia area and takes far too many photos of her handsome, creative third grader, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda.
