    [eZine] Pressboard Shanty / The Flash Factory

    This is apparently an e-publisher launched in October 2011 by the owners of Zoetrope.com. They're listed at Duotrope.

    December 1 they posted a call for manuscripts at IMDb on its Shop Talk Writers board, which is for screenwriters, seeking flash fiction, short stories, and poetry related to trains and train stations. Such a post breaks IMDb's rules.

    This seemed so very unprofessional that I found myself wondering if anyone here knew more about their past credits and ability to undertake such a venture. Their website: http://www.pressboardshanty.co.uk/

    Anyone?

    Maryn, wondering

    I'm not seeing where it's owned by Zoetrope. It is, however, "associated" with The Flash Factory, which is one of Zoetrope's private offices (currently run by Richard Osgood).

    No mention beyond initial announcements, and site was down by Mar '12.
