1. Call for submissions for the inaugural issue of Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal

We are a new art and literary journal based in the Catskills.

We are seeking short and flash fiction, poetry, and art.

Our aesthetic is "strange and beautiful."
We love literary sci-fi and fantasy, strange tales, fabulism, and quirky. We adore the disastrously gorgeous and the simply lovely.

Our first issue will be released in early January.

Submit at kaaterskillbasin@gmail.com

or see our website for full details (Kaaterskill Basin Journal dot com)


2. Call for submissions for the first annual Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal Short Fiction Contest

The theme is "heart of winter" to be interpreted as liberally as you see fit. Frost, glaciers, hearts, harts, yetis, and killer snowmen. Anything strange, wonderful, and frozen, literally or otherwise.

The contest opens December 2nd and closes January 1st.

There is an entry fee of 3$ and the winner will be published in the journal and paid 50$ per short story 1,001 to 5,000 words or .05 per word for flash fiction up to 1,000 words.

Full details at kaaterskill basin journal dot com



We look forward to reading your work!

To writers here (especially those just getting started):
1.  Keep in mind that your writing is a valuable thing, and worth payment.  Many markets won't take reprints or will pay less for them.  If you publish a story anywhere, then you have used up the most valuable asset of that story--first publication rights.  You can't sell those again.
2.  Many writers, especially in speculative fiction circles, follow Yog's Law: Money always flows toward the writer.  This is not because writers are greedy jerks, it's because they are offering something of value and according to this philosophy should not be paying for the privilege of offering something of value.  It's hard to make money writing no matter what you do, and it's much much much harder if you're paying to submit.  Submission fees are more common in literary markets as a difference in the literary culture surrounding them.
--If you want to hear me wax loquacious on the topic, from the perspective of game theory: http://www.diabolicalplots.com/game-theory-in-writing-part-3-why-money-should-always-flow-to-the-writer/

That being said, a writer should gather the facts and submit to whatever publication they wish to submit to based on what they have found.  Submit to non-paying or fee-based markets if you like, but do it with the knowledge that this is not the norm, at least in the speculative fiction writing community.

Unblinking, thanks for saying what you did. And for managing to say it so politely.
