June 2012 Issue

The Columnists are coming! The Columnists are coming!

Oh yes, this is our first issue to include columnists - we are happy to welcome Erika Hoffman and Carolyn Plath to the Epiphany family. Both writers have pieces published regularly in Newpapers, Carolyn in The Benicia Herald and Erika in her local weekly paper. Check out our columns page to learn more about these writers and to get your first taste of their points of view.

And, as always, we want to thank all of our contributors - there would be no Epiphany - epiphmag without you.



J.W. Smith, Editor/Publisher









A Clarification:


Recently there has been some confusion about who we are:

We are Epiphany - epiphmag.com

We are not:

"Epiphany A Literary Journal"
.

J.W. Smith, Editor/Publisher












Is an on-line publication sweeter by another name?



Late in the month of May I opened an email from an editor of another Epiphany: (Epiphany A Literary Journal). The editor wrote that a poet who had been accepted by Epiphany -epiphmag.com (Us) had confused us with Epiphany A Literary Journal - . Now, for those of you who don't know Epiphany A Literary Journal is a paper publication which has been around for 10 years. Anyone who has looked at our magazine (Epiphany epiphmag.com) which is clearly an on-line only publication - and anyone who was familiar with Epiphany A Literary Journal would not confuse one with the other.

We, Epiphany epiphmag.com, do not have a paper version. Our About us blurb clearly states that (we) epiphmag.com - Epiphany was started in 2010, solely to be an on-line venue in which writers and artists can display their works. Epiphany - epiphmag.com puts out 6 issues a year - February. April, June, August, October and December.

Epiphany A Literary Journal on the other hand, According to Duotrope : is a print magazine published 2 x a year. I have now visited the website that accompanies Epiphany A Literary Journal. Their website offers, among other things, issue highlights, submission info and information about subscribing to their publication.

Epiphany -epiphmag.com is not a paper publication and does not offer subscriptions. We are free. We publish out 6 issues a year. We would be happy to add you to our mailing list if you send us an email requesting that we do so.

Back to the email from the editor of Epiphany A Literary Journal- he went on to boast about his publication, and expressed his concern over the mis-directed permission statement. The editor went on to suggest that we, Epiphany - epiphmag.com look at ways to make our publication more distinctive . I found this to be quite humorous since we are one of a kind, state when we started and why we came about on our website and in our email response to every piece of mail in our submission in-box, as well as on our submission Guidelines page. And I look at other on-line magazines and have never come upon another one that visually resembles Epiphany - epiphmag.com. The editor of Epiphany A Literary Journal went on to suggest that we consider renaming Epiphany - epiphmag.com so that the folks who read Epiphany - epiphmag.com and the folks who read Epiphany A Literary Journal don't confuse our publications. What a good idea!

As one might expect with a biblical name like Epiphany, there are numerous magazines and websites which also have Epiphany as part of their name. Here are 3 magazines I came upon by doing a google search:

Epiphany Literary Journal (of Weber State University),

Epiphany The Magazine of Hope and

Epiphany A lifestyle Magazine for Todays Lesbian.

Notice the brief description of each magazine after the word Epiphany -
We, Epiphany - epiphmag.com - will follow this trend and add a tail to our title. For the time being we will harken back to our 1st issue where our tag read: "Welcome to Epiphany - an unpretentious showcase of the arts and assorted odds and ends." We have tweaked it a little and added the descripton of what Epiphany - epiphmag has to offer ( if you've received an email from us this will sound familiar to you) from the header in our email reply.

At this point in time we call for your, our readers and contributors, input/suggestions, brilliant ideas or humorous tags to add to our moniker in future issues. Please post your suggestions on our Facebook page or email them to us at contact@epiphmag.com

I want to thank the editor of Epiphany A literary Journal for suggesting we distinguish our Epiphany - epiphmag.com from his publication. I will also add, that although I have never had the pleasure of reading Epiphany A literary Journal, I believe that it is a well respected "Print" publication and well worthwhile perusing.

Contributor News

Rosa Alexander with co-author shELAH



Here's what Readers have said about Rosa's story: "The way Rosa relates scenes from her beloved Transylvania sparked the desire in my heart to really look at and appreciate the land that I as an American have been blessed to live in" (Margaret Hall). "Where the Willow Grows in Transylvania is such an inspirational read! I also found it thought provoking and self reflecting. Rosa's writing style makes one feel as if you are actually experiencing her life" (Donna Reid). ". . . If a book cannot hold my attention and starts to get the least bit boring, I will just stop reading. Due to work, I only read Where the Willow Grows in Transylvania during the evenings. However, I read this book in two days. . . . Every American would benefit from reading this book" (Joshua). Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, Where the Willow Grows in Transylvania may be ordered from bookstores nationwide as well as purchased through TATE Publishing, Amazon or www.rosaalexander.com.
