odds & ends

Haven't had much time to post lately, but here are just a few things going on and a few things to check out.

The new issue of Niteblade is up, and with the new format, you can post comments on each individual piece.

Minnow is a new online haiku journal, now open to submissions. You can find their full guidelines on the submissions page. (Thanks to Deborah Kolodji for passing along the information.)

If you plan on entering the Wergle Flomp Poetry Contest, hurry up... the deadline is April 1st.

With tax time approaching, many people are taking stock of their finances. If you are planning to donate some money and are looking for a worthy charity, consider Modern Haiku. A nonprofit organization, Modern Haiku not only puts out a great haiku magazine, but also operates the Modern Haiku Gift Fund, which covers "the cost of anonymous gift subscriptions to deserving and needy haiku poets worldwide."

Lastly, Flash Me Magazine will be reading for an all-fantasy issue between April 30th and August 31st. The editors will be on the lookout for fantasy stories under 1,000 words. Reprints will be considered (with acknowledgement).

nice ones, Ed! didn't know you had a dark side....

ed markowski said...

haiku & senryu are a small part of what i do.

i write short fiction & contribute regularly to a great ezine called smokebox.

google "ed markowski repressed memories" you'll come upon the most recent piece of short fiction that i've done. i think you'll enjoy it.

Greg Schwartz said...

wow, that's pretty heavy. that last line totally threw me. i've never heard of Smokebox before... i'll have to check it out more.

great story!

I want to look into Flash Me magazine. I might have just the right piece for them.

Greg Schwartz said...

Charles - good luck! an all-fantasy issue of flash fiction sounds pretty good to me.

Hey Greg,

Thanks for the nice words about my poem "Clockwork Bird" In the March issue of Niteblade.

Is this the same Greg that I published awhile back, when I ran BBT magazine?

Greg Schwartz said...

Hi Lucien,

Good to hear from you! Yep, it's the same me. i just had the one poem in BBT, "Skeleton." Glad to see you're still writing!
