All four back issues of Stoked are now on NAP. Thanks again to Chad Redden and crew for letting us be a part of the great things they have happening over there.
We are busy working on Volume V. Expect that goodness in June. Before we get there though, we’ll announce details and such in the next month or so here.

Stoked will be returning in 2013. We are thrilled to announce that NAP will be the new home of Stoked. While Layne and I will still be doing the design and editing, the upcoming issues, along with the archives, will be hosted on the NAP site. Archives will appear on their site in January, and new issues of Stoked will be released, beginning in June.
We are really honored to become part of that press. Chad Redden and Company do such a stellar job with the journal, chapbooks, and anthologies. Seriously, check all that stuff out. We are sure this is only going to make you more Stoked.
Our new submission policy will be through solicitation only, as we hope to return to the original model of Stoked, focused on soliciting and publishing the writers we are most Stoked about. Future issues will be published in January and June of each year. Any questions or comments, as always, are welcomed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for being you,
Tyler and Layne
The past year has been incredible and rewarding and fun and STOKED. We can’t thank anyone enough, though we try sometimes by shouting and such (yeah, that’s what that was all about). We are overwhelmed by the love and support shown for Stoked. Our proud meter is knocking the hat off that thing for our first four issues.
However, we have decided to take a little break. It’s clear Stoked needs to step it up a bit, but we aren’t sure which set of stairs to take. So, we are gonna hangout away from Stoked for a bit, taste test some options, and see what we’re feeling in the fall.
Layne just moved out to the beach in North Carolina, and I’m gonna do some traveling stuff (read more about that here if you wanna). We won’t be reading submissions, but would still love to hear from you, exchange work, check out the stuff you’ve published, etc. So add us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, email us, invite us to your house, whatever.
This has been so wonderful and we hope to keep it going in the fall.
We’re really just two dummies but we love you lotz,
Tyler and Layne
