Greetings friends and supporters of The Logan Square Literary Review. Thanks to all who submitted their work for Issue IV, and continued thanks to the Logan Square/Avondale/Wicker Park/Worldwide community who have been showing their support for this publication, through monetary and emotional means. It has been gratifying to see the community embrace this project, and to see the publication doing exactly what it was created to do; provide a venue for the unknown writer to express their self.

But it is with regret that I write to you all to say that I am putting my involvement with this project on indefinite hiatus. I am no longer able to devote the resources to the publication that I have been, and I cannot foresee a point at which I can do so again. This is not to say that the LSLR has to die. The initial concept was of a community-based publication, in content and in character. If there are other people that would like to carry on the mission of the LSLR, please step forward. I will gladly hand over all my indesign templates and can certainly lend guidance in getting to the printer. Please let me know if anyone has interest, and we can start talking logistics of a handover.

Thank you again for all of your support and understanding. This was a difficult message for me to have to send out to everyone, thank you for reading. Take care.
