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. :)

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

Thanks to everyone for your submissions so far. I know we've accepted a couple stories from folks who've told us they've come from this post, and we hope to see many more.

This weekend's theme is "Memories."

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.
