The September issue of The Big Click is now live.
MFAers might be especially interested as the lead story this month, Altar Boys, is from Westconn MFA alum Marc E. Fitch. Do download the ebook to support the magazine. Though formally closed to submissions, I will look at noir (not ordinary mystery/detection) stories from Westconn MFA students, alum, or faculty. We’ve previously published short fiction by Ken Bruen and Jim Nisbet, and have a story forthcoming by Ray Banks, so you’ll be in good company, and you’ll get paid. (A good way to support the journal is to buy the ebook version.)
Definitely at least read before submitting.
Also out now is the twelfth number of The New Haven Review. This journal is both print and online, and the current issue includes my short story “Five Days A Week the Commute Was” (opens PDF). This is a great market for us, as the editors are especially interested in work by authors from the greater New Haven, CT area. I’m a Long Islander, but listening to WPLR and watching WTNH as a kid, plus going to school at Westconn, was enough. (New Haven affiliation isn’t mandatory, but it helps.) The journal is also a paying market.
I hope the semester is going well for everyone, and good luck out there!
