Hello, and thanks for stopping by The Cave, your new interactive space for all things related to Bat City Review, Texas literature, and so much more. As a way to bridge the gap between our readers and staff, The Cave will be sharing new blogposts regularly, featuring all kinds of things—issue features, notes from the editorial desk, book projects by Bat City alumni, updates on our reading series, and news about former editors (good lord, sam sax!).
Keep your eye on The Cave for news about the second installment of our Short Prose Contest and for insider tips on submitting to Bat City Review. It’s our hope that you’ll get to know us, The Staff, and we’ll get to know you, too. You can consider this our official Nice To Meet Ya!
I’ll let Richard Hugo say it the way I wish I could.
“Just now, a stranger drove by and waved.
And I waved back my best wave, Albert. I shouted at him
‘hello,’ and it came back doubled by hills.”
-“Letter to Goldbarth from Big Fork” from 31 Letters and 13 Dreams
Stay tuned for more.
All my best,
