“I would love for people to look at Fantastic Florida’s more. And if there are writers listening, who have really weird out there stuff that’s not necessarily set in place, but kind of has a very strange texture. Or if there are people out there who are writing about Florida, submit to us, we’re open till the end of August, but we’ll I’m think it’s probably going to be open for the rest of the year. I might just open it up. So yeah, check out the online journal.” — Ryan

“When I was starting out, especially when I was trying to figure out what a small press was, and you know how to do things, and especially when we were considering, like distributing books traditionally, like doing what the big five do and, you know, trying to get books in bookstores, I talked to publishers at other small and medium sized presses.” — Ryan
