Linda B. Swanson-Davies and Susan Burmeister-Brown, co-editors

“I could’ve cried when I heard that Glimmer Train was planning its last run. I’ve heard more than a few people refer to this as “the end of an era.” But wow, what these two women have done is so remarkable. I have been lucky to publish stories in their pages three times; I call them my Fairy Godmothers. Susan and Linda have been the glimmer on the literary landscape for nearly three decades–paying writers well, reading every submission themselves, hosting important contests and launching careers. We writers are forever in their debt. THANK YOU, SISTERS GLIMMER!” -Melanie Bishop, author of My So-Called Ruined Life and founding editor of Alligator Juniper.
