Dear Readers and Authors,
After a long struggle, the print issue of the magazine is LIVE!
I want to express my gratitude to you all because both the first and the second issue of the magazine have had an amazing success. A heartfelt thank you should go to the authors because they have made it possible. Without them, Scarlet Leaf Review wouldn’t exist. I know I have said it many times so far, but I can't stress enough how important is their contribution.
I know this third issue of the print magazine is a little late (all right, all right, a little more), yet, that was inevitable.
What I can do is to promise that something like that never happens again (if force majeure doesn’t intrude upon us…).
The first fall issue will not be printed before the 21st of September, and we aim for the same date from now on, as I’d like to offer a feasible and fixed time frame. As result, all issues will be out on the 21st.
With the August issue, as you can see, the number of pages has increased. Now, it is 96. We have received many valuable submissions and we cannot turn them down just to keep the number of pages and the price low. Hopefully, this will not be a deterrent for our readers.
It is very difficult to determine exactly how many pieces we can approve for a given month because of poems and their structure. With prose it is easy. We can calculate the number of words per page. That doesn't happen with poetry and poetry is dear to our heart. As result, submissions will be accepted for a season from now on, for instance fall. Thus, we can have two issues during that season with 48 or 60 pages, and the last issue of the season will include everything that didn't go through.
Without further ado, I give you the third issue of Scarlet Leaf Review. I know you’ve been waiting… I know I have.

Editor in Chief,
To bring joy to readers everywhere.
