l. 1 had a hayw1re week, so wh1le 1 ass1gned the entr1es for today, 1 d1d not follow up on, send 1nstruct1ons for, nor further commun1cate about them. 1’m runn1ng them 1f they come 1n, wh1ch, we’ll see.
ll. 1 spent my own Saturday at Ph1l1p Lopate’s Stalk1ng the Essay conference, where 1 p1rated the lectures of Wayne Koestenbaum and H1lton Als. They are of enormous 1nterest to the eye, so those are com1ng your way on Monday.
lll. 1 love read1ng subm1ss1ons—of course—but Enormous Eye 1s ass1gned 1n advance, as noted above. 1nterested part1es can send wr1t1ng samples to me, ARS, at email@example.com for cons1derat1on, but 1t m1ght take me a wh1le to get back to you.
lV. St1ll…1’m post1ng a cold eye that came to my 1nbox unb1dden on Monday because 1 l1ke 1t so much, and because 1ts wr1ter broke the Saturday rule and 1 respect the urgency of somet1mes just need1ng, very badly, to lay out your Thursday. Plus, 1t’ll be n1ce to have at least one th1s week.
