To date I have four submissions in my inbox. I will begin posting these on Friday. Some of you are on vacation, holiday, hiding in your room or just have more pressing business. I understand. A few are working on it and that is good. It is not too late–and it is never too late–so no excuses.
I discovered a couple of zines, Gloom Cupboard (UK). They as a matter of fact took the poem Open All Night and published it over night. gloomcupboard.com I recognized some names there so that is a good thing. There are also having a chapbook contest (no fees) to celebrate their birthday.
I had dancing at woodstock accepted at Instant Pussy which is a print mag in chapbook form. Misti Rainwater-Lites is the owner It is an underground/alternative press and not for everybody.
The Guild of Outsider Writers keeps a page of Submission Calls on zines and contests. Keep checking this as it updates periodically.
