A quick note to say that we've added an explicit confidentiality statement to our submission guidelines index page.
We've added this because we've received a couple of queries about the confidentiality of our submissions process, prompted by an ongoing investigation of harassment at Wiscon. The Wiscon safety committee is investigating allegations that a convention member used racist and anti-immigrant language to harass another attendee. The alleged harassment occurred at a poetry reading and included the recital of an unpublished poem containing harassing language. One of our poetry editors offered to provide a copy of the recited text to the safety committee to aid their analysis of the incident. In the end it has not proved necessary to actually share the text.
