Well, there are only a few days left in July; which means that time will soon run out if you want to see your article, poem or short story in the August issue of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. I like to publish work by guest writers the first week of every month. The deadline for August is July 31.
There are three tabs at the top of the page. Anything Goes is for non-fiction (I would really like to see something about why you became a blogger). Send Poetry is for poems and Submissions is for flash fiction. Previously published work is okay. This magazine is now a paying market. Just read and follow the guidelines and good luck.
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister bloggers, readers and writers from all over the world. I would like to give a special shout-out to all my fans in the Philippines. You know who you are.
It’s going to be a mostly cloudy but hot day in Pittsburgh today. I’m reading my other book on Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). The book contains most of his creative work.
He was also a very successful editor. He edited four magazines and greatly increased the readership of each one. One way he did this was through controversy. He was a fearsome critic of the work of other writers; but he left each magazine because he could not get along with the publisher.
Well, I use controversy (brazen sexuality) to increase the readership of this magazine and it works. The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette has averaged 449 hits every day for this month. And I don’t have to worry about getting along with my publisher. I am the publisher.
Of course, the magazines that Poe edited had a lot more going for them than controversy, just like the PFFG.
Keep reading and keep writing that flash fiction. And send me something.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of creative ideas, serious writing and brazen sexuality.
