This is my first "official" call for submissions, you can submit via SubmishMash.
Slit Your Wrists! eZine is a new breed of literary magazine made with the power of blogging sent directly to Amazon Kindle. Fiction genres we are interested in include Noir, Transgressive, Thriller, Horror, Bizarro, Literary, and Dark Comedy. While maybe not on the list, I am open to any work with potential. Poetry that matches the theme usually relate to love, death, or depression. If it's dark, I'll probably love it! Reprints are okay, so long as the hold on rights from the previous publication are over.
I will be doing many book reviews in the future, alongside script and film reviews. It's not closed off as a writing only sort of zine, but rather focuses on all parts of the art fields. I will be doing artist showcases, album reviews, and interviewing both authors and musicians.
For any authors of LitReactor that would like their work among the book reviews and interviews, it would be really awesome if there was a way for you to send me a digital copy of the book to do so. My plan when it comes to authors is to read their title(s) and have them for an interview after reading their work and getting to know them better. I like most of what I've read from people in this community and will get to you all eventually, but I'm usually somewhat hard up for money so that route will take more time.
As for musicians, I tend to lean toward things that won't be seeing much "radio play". If you have a band, or record music on your own, feel free to send some tracks and your information my way. I would like to review an EP or full album, and maybe get them in for an interview.
I'm doing this all without profit and the only thing this really does for me is build my journalism and editor resume for the future. More or less what I am offering is free support and publicity of other peoples work just for the chance to see it.
Looking good. Might have something for you. Check yo inbox, foo. Hehe,
Also, yes, next time I am websiting stuff I will link you up and stuff. I like the idea of having a nice little network of our blogs and stuff. I already put a blogroll on Solarcide's main page, I will get you on there soon. What with the WAR and real life being all up in the way I have been a bit busy this week and haven't been on here as much as usual. Don't worry though bro, it will happen.
I'll look for it.
Yeah, I'm curious about the reblog aspect because I wonder if it just does a partial post and links to the full article on the others website or the whole thing. I'll have to experiment I guess. I figure I will either add in a blogroll or add it into a drop down menu with a page of reccomended websites.
All three of the sites are pretty different in a sense, I think you guys will always have the one up on literary talent interviews and Danny will be able to offer everything in one genre niche better, while we have the variety. SYW is forming into a pretty cool place for musicians to end up, too.
Cloud was shared by Caleb J. Ross, the Velvet, and Noir Literature on Twitter today.
Didn't know if you noticed. ;)
Also, you will find Solarcide in the "Suggested websites" menu now.
Double post monster.
@Lau, if you're still wondering, you can check how your reblogged article looks like. On my blog, at least.
I like your new pic Flaminia, you look deep in thought and then I think, "What the hell is she thinking about?"
And ain't that scary.
The fact that I'm thinking, that is.
Thanks, Flaminia. Looks like how it does on tumblr.
Here are some updates as of today:
Be our friend
There's also a secret VIP group that only featured writers get into, or so I hear...
...'Cause I made it.
So here's a random question: I've looked at the guidelines so if this is obvious feel free to mock me--is there any chance of some narrative non-fiction weasling it's way in there? I've got a cool bit that might fit, but yaknow, it's non-fiction.
It's possible, just depends. If it's in a whole other direction from themes of the site, then probably, but I have nothing against non-fiction. Send it if you'd like and I'll read it when I can.
Cool. I have to throw some edits and rewrites at it, and make it purdy. Then I'll shoot it at you and you can see what you think.
I just submitted a short story!
Cool man, my submissions surged the other day and I have over 50 to go through so it might be a while.
Sorry for the wait.
That's BULL SHIT!
I just got bored and wanted to see my face in this thread.
Haha, I do that all the time.
...sounds like a plan... ;)
Hello, Mr. Bergen. ;)
I'm actually flooded with submissions now, haha. There's like 75 things for me to go over in the SubmishMash (people are always welcome though). I really need to bridge some connections on a photography and art website to make that content better, haha. Does anybody know if deviant art is really the highlight of that field? Also, I said something about it once before, but I am looking for somebody to work with on the site in a similar way that Martin and Nathan run Solarcide to free up more of my time for my own stuff and book reviews.
Busy is good, Laurance ('allo, mate!), but you're right about the way in which it strips away the time to do other stuff - so allocating sounds like a good idea.
Yeah, I'm suppose to be a writer, poet, or journalist, or something outside of this.
Don't worry, I pretend too. ;)
So... what happened to this? I've tried contacting a few people, but I can't seem to get much of a response? Shut down? Turned into Revolt Daily?
Turned into Revolt Daily, Howie. I'm managing editor currently, so if you need to get in touch, you can hit me up.
What about ones with love and depression, that dont fit neatly in any of those? I wouldnt call it literary or genre.
Sarah-- this is incredibly outdated. SYW doesn't exist anymore. SYW *became* Revolt Daily but with that change was a change in goals, direction, etc. (and most recently leadership). We're working out a lot of kinks in our fiction section right now and have a large slush pile. I wouldn't necessarily worry about subbing fiction to us for awhile.
Actually, I was wondering what was afoot there, Renee, but didn't have time to ask anyone. Cheers for the update—and keep us tabbed. :)
