Friday, June 25, 2010 10:45 AM
There is still time for anyone who hasn't yet done so to register and vote for my story "Of Mice and Astronauts" currently competing in the Crossed Genres 2nd annual Flash Fiction Contest. And, there is still a need. Of the ten stories, two have broken away from the pack with huge leads and mine is one of them. As of this moment, those two stories... Read More...

Friday, April 9, 2010 5:50 PM
So you've written a great story, revised it, edited it, spanked it on the butt and said it's ready for the world to see. After all that the last thing you want is to have problems with the submission process. To make life easy, always check a magazine's website before you submit.

In response to recent questions from the kvona and mvpjmp I've done some furthering digging around and have come up with two online fiction publications that I think our excellent examples of what every e-zine should aspire to be.

Online Literary Magazines: Submit with Caution
Monday, February 9, 2009 5:18 PM
There are a lot of online literary magazines and the fact of the matter is they don’t get half the respect a print publication does. There are a lot of good reasons why this is so but you shouldn’t count out these e-zines too easily. Reason number one: anyone, including me or you, could create one if we wanted to and name ourselves editor. I used to make a fort... Read More...
