Hello everyone, happy 2017! As you’ve noticed, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus while your’s truly worked out some kinks in his personal life, as well as while we launched our first-ever themed anthology, Fast Women and Neon Lights (if you haven’t picked up a copy, please do so, not only has it received rave reviews, but your support is crucial to the magazine’s continued existence).
SUBMISSIONS ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR ISSUE THREE! And we are proud to announce our Guest Editor for the issue, the one, the only, a true southern gentlemen, Eryk Pruitt! As a fellow East Texas boy, Eryk’s work has always entertained me and given me a sense of kinship with him. His story in Fast Women and Neon Lights has been called out specifically by multiple reviewers for its excellence, and I felt it was high time we did an issue that focused on rural noir anyway, which is Eryk’s specialty. That’s not to say that this issue is limited solely to rural noir, just that writers who know their markets would be advised to take it under consideration that rural noir might be a great fit for this one.
I’ll leave Eryk’s bio and accomplishments to his website for explanation, but suffice to say, we’re thrilled to have him on board, I can’t wait to see which stories resonate with him, and frankly, I can’t wait to read all the excellent work that is submitted myself. If you want to improve your chances of landing a story in the issue, and also if you just want to be really, really fucking entertained, go pick up one of Eryk’s books HERE.
Send us your best, we’re looking forward to it! SUBMIT HERE!!!
