Oscar Wilde once said something akin to Hell being filled with editors and in as much as this may be true, there is one noble exception: Rob McEvily. Wilde obviously did not know Rob, the bel esprit patron saint of struggling and unpublished writers everywhere, six continents at a time (who counts Antarctica, as Rob hilariously pointed out awhile back). Rob has been untiring in his efforts to promote new and maybe not-so-new writers and he has given us a place, a community in which to belong. Rob is accomplishing something that editors at maybe better-known sites and literary reviews have not - he has given the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, the high-toned, the down-trodden, the self-doubters and egoists alike, a sense of place. So no, this six is not a story, but an observation, and while it is not as verbose as one of my fictional stories in this manner of a six, it is only rightly so as I could easily surpass six sentences to say it, but the author kindly respects this editor’s guidelines. It would not be fiction to write that all of us owe a great deal of gratitude to Rob and we can truly say in six words - thank you so very much, friend.
