FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A monthly literary digest edited by Randy Roark
“For Immediate Release” was a free, internet-only literary digest that was conceived in the days following the bombing of the World Trade Center. Its stated purpose was to provide a means by which writing could be made available within weeks or even days of its being written. A year and 12 issues later, a digest of this kind seems less necessary, and I am setting “FIR” aside to move on to other projects. I want to thank Jackie Sheeler for making “FIR” possible, as well as our guest editors and the writers who submitted work for publication, and everyone who supported this effort in many ways.
