Friends, contributors, fellow appreciators of fermented beverages–with this, our 20th issue, we are bidding a fond farewell to the ingestible-only literary slant of the Farmer General. We will be re-launching this bold enterprise as a more, if you’ll pardon us here, general literary ship in January. What’s that mean? It means that we’ll still have themes, good people, but that, in the spirit of a more catholic artistic impulse, we’d like to open the doors to submissions of all stripes, beyond those that deal with food and drink. If your muse still speaks to you in terms of comestible items, don’t worry–we’ll still delight in it. But, if you’d rather write, wax lyrical, sing, or doodle about other subject matter, here’s your chance to achieve electronic glory within our pages. Submissions are due December 1st! (And there’s a contest! Did we mention the contest? Look, here, we did!) We look forward to receiving your submissions, and remain, as ever, your Farmer General.
