5x5 Fiction ISSUE TWO Update...and more

At this point, responses have been sent out to all writers who submitted work for Issue Two. So check those mailboxes.

We're looking at a release date of on or before June 11th. Mark those calendars and spread the word. The Issue Two theme is...'ll just have to wait and see. Aw, don't you hate that?

Regarding submission guidelines, there will be two changes. One: submissions will be accepted year round without a cut-off date. Quarterly deadlines will be March 1st, June 1st, September 1st, and December 1st. Work accepted after deadline dates will appear in the following issue. Two: I will accept up to 5 works per e-mail (no need to send 5 separate e-mails anymore).

What else?

Oh, yes. Submission guidelines exist for a reason. I am, by nature, flexible. As many of you know, I am more than willing to work with you on editing and revising your work. I want you to succeed and see your work published. But, as of this day forward, if you send me work that doesn't adhere to the guidelines (i.e. wrong word count, more or less than 5 sentences, sentences with more or less than 5 words, multiple spelling errors...yes, this is happening!), I will unleash the claw on you. For those of you unaware of the tells me you haven't read the guidelines!...god help ya!

Anyway, I can't wait to show you this issue!


  1. Excellent! Sometimes I lose track of deadlines so this works great for me. *ducks behind a dumpster when claw goes by*

  2. I'm glad to see another issue of 5x5 Fiction coming out soon; but, you know it could be every Friday for me!

    I'm ducking with Laura, because that claw is one sharp mother.

  3. Looking forward to sending my reader(s?) this way ASAP.
