Notes also that the magazine has been “partially” funded by a grant from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines via the National Endowment for the Arts, that the magazine is listed in the “Index of American Periodical Verse” published annually by The Scarecrow Press, Inc., and that Telephone is a member of the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines and the Before Columbus Foundation. Subscription price increases to seven dollars for two issues, and notes “contributions are greatly appreciated.”
