    Encouraged by "Dear lord, nothing in SMS or text-speak" which I've never mastered, I'm going to submit a story. Good luck with the new zine.

    This actually looks like a great challenge!
    I have a mind like a steel...thingmabob...you know...doohickey.

    http://www.cebarrett.com for excerpts from "Angels Among Us" and more. What if you were a closet heterosexual? What would you do when you met the woman of your dreams?

    Finally another market that doesn't require overly long stories. I'll definitely be submitting if I get a good idea.

    I would love to submit, but I think I'm still a bit confused on what to do. Maybe I'm just having a blonde moment. LOL (yes I am blonde). I have a twitter account, but not really sure how to do the story, I guess maybe I should re-read the above link sites.

    Wanted to let you guys know we're still up and running and publishing many, many of your fellow AWer's. We will celebrate 6 months on November 1st, and to celebrate we're currently running a contest that's open through Saturday Night with some great prizes.

    And after that we'll still be open for regular submissions... Just not this weekend.
