    This is such a great idea, a fantastic way for new writers to get a publishing credit and some exposure (even if it's only small to begin with). It's hard to believe it's had such a poor response.

    You should annouce it as a PM, I am sure you will get more responses.(If you can do that? I presume you can as an admin).

    The site owner doesn't seem to have visited his own site for over a week, and there are no mods in evidence. Are the days of this site numbered?

    I apoligize for my inactivity. I'm rather busy... have several other sites to manage, plus I go to school.

    However, I promise to work on this site, managing, promoting and such, much more in the near future.

    As for mods, are you volunteering? :p

    Wow -- I'm thinking of submitting a picture and possibly a sci fi short. When do you need it by?

    Im not sure how old this is, but concerning any new Ezine, I'd be glad to publish ANY of my poems, whatever you like best, and If possible my Short story ( which no one has read!)

    I would submit something but am a little confused as to what sort of stuff you are looking for and what sort of word count you are wanting.
    Sorry if I have misread the guidelines.

    If we get enough quality submissions, I hope to have a fall issue out (this month, next month). If not, then they'll carry over to next year.

    Don't worry about the word count for now, or the genre. Submit anything you think is quality and publish worthy. If I think length guidelines are needed, I'll add them later.

    If you dont have enough, I can submit any number of things. I have masses of stuff piled up, I know its not exactly what you wanted but at least then you can release it.

    ^ Feel free to submit. Right now we're running low on people actually interested in submitting writing.... and unless we get good quality writing, there won't be an ezine.

    Ok guys! You are all writers! Submit! We have an interview with a NY Times bestseller..now come on and put aside your fears and submit!

    Since the ezine is slated for an attempt at an October 31st release..how about some of you horror fans submitting some short works of horror for it?

    Seriously guys! Lets get this thing to take off! If you need some advice on something you would like to submit for the ezine..id be happy to review it for you..but please guys..lets help boost this along!

    Some other ideas for submissions:

    write a series type story where the next part will be included in the next issue

    I know you guys have it in you..so lets see it! And as i said, if you want a review or are nervous about submitting it, send it my way and I'll give u some help

    Sorry, I've been gone for a couple of weeks due to a neck injury, but I just want to say that I'm at the point that I'm shopping around for agents and sending out fragments of my manuscript.

    No offense to this ezine (which I plan on submitting to) but no agent that I've spoken to accepts any internet submission as a publishing credit. Here's to hoping that this ezine is well produced enough to be different.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The ezine isn't really meant to be used for publishing credits - though if you find you're able to, more power to ya. It's more of just a thing to share you writing with fellow writers and perhaps get a little publicity. More for fun than anything else.

    Since I don't have a job I was wonderin If there was anyway I could make some cash off my poems from getting them read by from a real authorized poet? Is this possible or am I hallucinating?

    Youre most likely hallucinating.


    Daniel, Ill gather up all my poems and give them to you. You can pick the best and do what you want with them.

    Ill also give you my story if you want, its kinda "fractured" though?
