NEW TO BLACKBIRD?
We have kept Blackbird structurally simple in order to emphasize the quality of its content and to make reading, viewing, and listening to it as effortlesstechnologically speakingas possible.
All pages in Blackbird also have a menu on the left-hand side. This menu varies from page to page. On some pages, such as this one, its links lead to areas that are primarily informativeEditorial Policy, Submissions, Links, and so forth. On all pages within the genres and Gallerycontributors' notes, poems, stories, and so forthit provides an alphabetical index of all contributors within that content area so that you can quickly and easily move among pieces within a genre.
Links that Open in Separate
Please contact Blackbird at firstname.lastname@example.org with any problems you may encounter.
Blackbird begins with a "Foreword" page, an introduction to the issue's content. Selecting the Blackbird logo in the upper left-hand corner of any subsequent page will return you to the Foreword.
Since this is Blackbird's first issue, and all content is readily accessible, there is not a typical "Search" feature on the Browse page. This feature will be added as we publish subsequent issues and the need for it arises.
From any poem, story, essay, or other work, you may move directly to the particular Contributor's Notes or, when applicable, to other pieces by the same contributor.
The quality of streaming audio and video can depend greatly upon the speed of the user's Internet connection. Again, we have configured our audio and video content to play acceptably at all speeds, but, of course, it will play best at the fastest speed.
The only link provided on the print version pages is "back," which will take you to the web version of the piece which you have printed.
