Published in BLIP Magazine

By Ken Brosky
... Formerly the Mississippi Review Online. Ah, it's always nice to see the bigger literary journals dip their toes into the Internets. I think there should be a rule: literary journals should evolve technologically at a faster pace than President George W. Bush. That means if George W. Bush sets up a blog, every literary journal in the country should already have one set up. If George W. Bush sta...

One of the few nice things about Facebook is that you can become friends with editors and their literary magazines, which can occasionally lead to some interesting conversations (if the editor chooses to talk to you, of course) as well as fascinating links. Like this one. Who knew Flavorwire was putting together a list of online literary journals and ranking them? Not I. Why would I? I'm not Go...

I found this particular short story while I was combing through The Pinch's website trying to find something I could share. I've been a fan of The Pinch for awhile now but I noticed they don't put anything online ... yet. I did notice, however, that they provide links to contributing writers' homepages, which is a nice way to get interested visitors over to a favorite writer's site so they can fin...

Published in BULL magazine

By Ken Brosky
Men's fiction. Now there's something I can get behind. BULL is like Maxim magazine, only instead of being mindless and annoying, BULL is thoughtful and fun to read. So I guess it's not really like Maxim at all, except that it's geared toward men. But that doesn't mean women can't enjoy it, too, right? After all, I read through Amy and Isabelle and enjoyed it, although I'm sure I missed some things...

I think I've left the interview with Ethan Rutherford up long enough (and I hope you checked it out, especially if you're an aspiring writer ... great stuff!). I spent a few hours last week browsing through some new lit mags that I never heard of before and bookmarked all of them to add to my massive collection titled, aptly, "Things You need to read." The "You" refers to me, an the rhyme was pure...

Author of "The Peripatetic Coffin"

By Ken Brosky
I took a gamble and dropped Ethan Rutherford and email to see if I could squeeze some questions from him, and whadda ya you? He's a downright nice guy! If you haven't read his short story "The Peripatetic Coffin," click here to check it out. It's a really good historical fiction piece, and that's not an easy thing to write. So for those of you out there who enjoy writing, I present to you an in...

I know I gave this story a little blurb in the last post, but I think I absolutely NEED to mention it one more time. This story, "The Peripatetic Coffin," is in my copy of Best American Short Stories of 2009 but I hadn't actually reached it until this morning. Wow! What a fantastic story. Really. A group of Confederate soldiers training inside one of the first submarines ever built? Fantastic. ...

From American Short Stories

By Ken Brosky
I love ASF's web exclusives. They're easy to read and good quality. ASF is having a fundraiser right now, and if you enjoy reading their FREE online short stories, consider sending a buck or two by clicking here. ASF also charges a $2 fee to submit, which goes toward the magazine. So consider submitting a story. You pay the fee, help the mag, and who knows? Maybe they'll publish your story. Fro...

By Christine Sneed, published in the New England Review

By Ken Brosky
I don't actually remember the New England Review having anything up online, so it was with great pleasure that I happened upon the site again while looking for places to submit a new piece of fiction. I managed to snag a copy of the NER at the last writer's conference I was at, and it sits proudly on by bookshelf between a copy of The Pinch and reDevider, two of my favorite lit mags. From "Inte...

A shorty-short from Salt Hill Journal's archives, courtesy of their Web site. I don't remember how I came across this site at first, but It's an impressive layout and you can browse the archives for a few free stories and poems if you're interested in submitting a story or just reading a few things. A lot of the fiction seems to be pretty short, so they're easy to digest. From "So...
