An exhaustive and rigorous selection process is used with Hair Trigger to ensure that no excellent story–whatever the voice, subject, or approach–will be overlooked.
Our appreciation goes to the student editors, chosen for their own ability as writers and readers, who work tirelessly to ensure the highest quality of this literary journal.
The acquisition editors are charged with the task of closely reading and evaluating each story; they help to comprise a collection that reflects the broad range of writing creativity in our workshops, and stories that meet the standard of excellence that has become the hallmark of Hair Trigger. Respect for the writer, for content, for form, for point of view and language, and vividness of telling, characterize the selections printed in this volume.
The Hair Trigger production editors assume the work of proofreading, copyediting, and composing the narrative arc of the anthology. Their process involves collaborating with the contributing writers with the goal of realizing the fullest potential of each manuscript, while honoring authorial intent, voice, and overall impact.
