From the past September through this May, we have been extremely fortunate to have the support and expertise of an absolutely amazing team of readers to help us through the hundreds of hours of close evaluation of the manuscripts we received during our open submission period in August. It's not hyperbole to say that each member of this team (most of whom read over 60 manuscripts) made a world of difference in the process of selecting CavanKerry's forthcoming titles. Each reader was timely, thorough, and professional with their assessments, and it gave us tremendous peace of mind to know they were working alongside us to honor our mission of publishing collections both of the highest quality writing and with the deepest wells of heart and generosity. We can't wait to share the resulting lineup with you (keep your eyes peeled this Friday!). Once more, from each of us on the CKP team: thank you.
Additionally, a special note in memory of Juan Wynn, who we lost earlier this year - you'd be hard-pressed to find a more astute, insightful, and warm individual, and we will miss you and hold you in our hearts, with gratitude and love, always. 💕
