Rights: worldwide, non-exclusive, one-time, electronic-only; reprints considered.

Needs: The Errorist will be found at www.the-errorist.com starting in mid-September. Each month, we’ll publish about 10 pieces of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, lyrics and artwork. Our motto: Dedicated to the spread of lies, half-truths, and weapons of mass disinformation.

We are open-minded in regards to genre and content. Our basic guidelines are this: politically aware, not polemic. Although the editors live in London, we’re internationally minded (as befits the w.w.w.)

There won’t be annoying pop-up or banner ads on the site, and the overall feel will be simpler and more linear than most sites – we hope that this will focus attention on the content and make it more like a ‘zine or magazine – albeit one you read on your computer screen.

The ever-important issue of “compensation”: We believe in giving writers and artists something for their effort and output; unfortunately this principal has been somewhat eroded by certain perceptions of electronic media. Unfortunately to start with, we don’t have a budget. To get around this we’re offering “alternative payment” whenever possible. We’ll send you a book or a CD, or if you live in or visit the Greater London area, we might all meet at a pub to talk things over and have some face time, with the drinks on us.

If we’re ever in a position to share any sort of accumulated wealth, we will; we’re doing this for love, not money.

What we can promise, other than a token reward, is a piece of that elusive currency that is credit for work done (notice that a lot of websites unfortunately stop at that), a fair evaluation of your art and craft, and for writers at least, careful and thoughtful editing, along with consultation, if need be, during the editing process.

Proposals are nice, but it’s usually best to see the finished piece, so please send to mikewendling@hotmail.com; if you’re an artist or photographer please give us a bit of warning before sending large attachments. Deadline for the first issue is 30 August; subsequent deadlines are the last day of each month
