SIXFOLD call for submissions in fiction and poetry

WCSU short story writers and poets,

SIXFOLD is an intriguing new journal that uses an innovative system of voting to determine what gets published in the journal. What’s intriguing about it — besides the fact that it circumvents the conventional “gatekeepers” of literary publishing — is that even if your story/poem doesn’t rise to the top you’ll end up getting constructive comments on your work  from other writers. If you’ve got something ready, you should think about entering it by the October 24th deadline. Here’s the link, followed by the submissions call:


Sixfold needs 77 more short-story writers and 96 more poets to run the Oct. 24 votes. Each collective vote needs a minimum of 200 writers for a robust, many-opinioned result. If fewer than 200, we need to suspend voting until January. Let’s not! E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, text, or call writers you know to enter the vote by Oct. 24 and help create the next issues. Thank you for your help!”
