To the Contributors and Readers of Plath Profiles

Please keep in mind that the deadline for Plath Profiles Volume 6 is in one month, 1 April 2013, at 7 PM (Eastern US Time)

Submissions of your work on Sylvia Plath for Plath Profiles that are received after 1 April (that is, after 7:00:01 p.m. on 1 April) will be considered on a case-by-case basis but will more than likely be held out for the following volume. Deadlines are deadlines, after all.

And for the love of Plath, please read and follow the submission guidelines.

Perhaps I do not even need to post anything about it, especially so far in advance, but for some reason it seems necessary and/or appropriate. After Volume 6 of Plath Profiles goes live this summer, I will cease to be affiliated with the journal. It has been an honor to work with its contributors and correspond with its readers; however, after very long consideration I have decided this is the best course of action for me to take. I anticipate helping to promoting future issues to the extent that I can and wish Bill Buckley and the editorial board the best of luck going forward.

Oh it is with sadness that I hear of your leaving PP, PKS. You did a great job (and no doubt will do so again in this next upcoming issue) and PP would surely not have excelled and succeeded in the way it has without your knowledgable assistance.

On another note, April 1! Holy jeebus! I had not realized that the deadline was coming so soon (I mean that as in I had lost track of time, not that PP didn't make it clear about the deadline). Yikes, I better get to writing if I want to get something submitted by April 1. Dang.

I heard Steinberg's sold his soul to the Estate and that they've asked him to help sort out the 27 year back log on permissions.

Ha ha: Anonymous, I think I know who you are.

Get writing Bridget! Thanks for your kind words. Contrary to Anonymous' comments it is just time to have a little de-Plathification.

Thank you for all that have done for Plath scholarship via Plath Profiles --- you will be dearly missed but are certainly entitled to some de-Plathification. Does this mean no more These Ghostly Archives essays with GC? I hope that you still have the desire and energy to continue with this blog and webpage.

OMG Peter!! Could you please define "de-Plathification" with all its concequences?? I'm really scared right now! :O

Anna, No worries. The blog will continue and I'll be updating the <a href="http://www.sylviaplath.info>A celebration, this is</a> website, too. Just need a break (albeit a permanent one) from <i>Plath Profiles</i>.

Oh My! I was really horrified for a moment! Imagined a big "YOU DO NOT DO, YOU DO NOT DO ANY MORE" sign on the blog and a big Plath bonfire in your backyard! ;)
