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).
