All submissions have now been responded to. Thank you to everyone who submitted and congratulations to those who have been accepted.
There have been more rejections this time around. In preparation for print editions in 2022 being both affordable and premium quality, we need to limit the number of pieces we share in each issue. We are now more mindful of ideas repeating across an issue and so we are focusing on how individuals contribute to the whole issue with originality as well as ensuring the pieces we share tell a story and are the strongest submissions.
As always though, we hope this does not deter you from submitting in 2022. Those who have been accepted before have been rejected this time while others who have been rejected before have been accepted. FVR is always about making each issue the best it can be and this comes from the submitted work itself rather than if you have or haven’t been in issues before.
The release date of Issue IV will be announced soon!
