New Lit on the Block :: Safety Pin Review

Published December 01, 2011 Posted by
The Safety Pin Review is a new literary magazine featuring fiction of less than 30 words, posted once a week, with a major D.I.Y. twist: in addition to being published online, each story is hand-painted onto a cloth back patch, which is attached (via safety pins) to one of SPR's operatives - "a collective network of punks, thieves and anarchists" — who wear it everywhere they go for a week. The SPR website features the poems as well as pictures of the operative-of-the-week wearing it around.

Featured poets thus far include Barry Basden, J. Bradley, Doug Paul Case, Brian Hurley, Simon Jacobs, David James Keaton, Len Kuntz, Helen Vitoria, and xTx.

Safety Pin Review accepts submissions of unpublished fiction of no more than 30 words - no poetry, and pays $1.00 per acceptance.
