Published for a Day and Other Musings

Word Riot is having "Published for a Day" on June 7th. Jackie Corley et al "will post an entry with links to downloadable PDFs of novels and book-length short story collections (at least 25k words) that will be available for one day and one day only: 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Monday, June 7." The only requirement is that you have published in 1 of 21 journals (jmww included). So dust off your Great American Novel or short story collection and send it off! An agent might be lurking.

The June 2010 issue of decomP is hot off the press.

What else? Don't forget the FICTION Magazine, Dogzplot, and Sententia reading at the KGB Bar in New York this Friday, June 4th, at 7 pm. I'm excited to read and to finally meet Kim Chinquee and Heather Fowler, Shya Scanlon, Peter Schwartz, and others.
