New Lit on the Block :: FictionNow

Published November 14, 2011 Posted by
Editor Marge Lurie of FictionNow writes that the online magazine's mission is "connecting good writers of short fiction with hungry, interactive readers. You'll find stories that honestly reflect what it's like to be alive in the 21st century - stories that wrestle, as all good fiction must, with how to construct meaning out of the welter of untamed experience."

The first issues features works by Elizabeth England, George Dila, Richard Smolev, Ray Abernathy, Joel Hinman, Pamela Painter, Joanne Avallon, Silvia Bonilla, Seth Kaufman, and Susan Buttenwieser.

Submissions are open for previously unpublished fiction between 250 and 4,000 words.
