Rights: One time usage, with rights reverting to contributor
Needs: Fiction: looking for short stories. No explicit sex or gratuitous adult language. Only what the story needs to make it work. We will consider experimental or genre fiction, but only if it works. Non-fiction: looking for book and movie reviews. (Hint: it doesn't have to be new, just easily available. Something you would recommend, and tell us why). Poetry: nothing too lengthy. Checker Cab Magazine is full of short snippets, but good.
Art/Photo Needs: It has to be simple, something that photocopies. B/W line art. We could use some artsy checkerboard graphics, with bending lines like ribbons? Sorry, we don't have an art director yet.
Payment: Ten dollars per published original story, poem, non-fiction article, or graphic. Pays on acceptance.
How to Submit: We prefer hard copy sent to our snail mail address. If you want your ms returned, please include enough postage for its return. If not, we will assume that you want us to recycle it. Please include your contact info, including email, on front page. Word counts help a lot. If we can use your work, we'll get in touch about file format later.
Response Time: 1 week to 1 month
Tips for Writers: If time permits, I might scribble questions or suggestions on your manuscript. Time is tight, so it seldom happens. But if it does happen, don't take my input too seriously. I'm just a writer, like you, and my intent is to offer helpful feedback.
Sample Copies/Subscription Information: Sample copy six dollars, annual subscription (4 copies) is twenty dollars made payable to Katy Lawson.
