We are defrosting in Toronto, the weather is slowly getting warmer, but it’s still below 0.
I have been taking part in the submission and rejection cycle once again as a writer. I’ve discovered there are a lot of new ezines out there, but they do not pay. That’s fine, but I’m not sure if it’s worth my while to write and then get not much out of it.
Since curating the Trump: Utopia and Dystopia book, I’ve become good friends with quite a few authors. Dark Helix has newsletters, but I thought it would be a great idea if we could do an ezine. This would be like a mini Costco magazine. Instead of food samples, we’ll have stories from writers and interviews with them so people can read new material that they otherwise might never come across in this vast internet world of words.
Announcing the Dark Helix Ezine, a speculative fiction ezine which will be available for FREE for readers. We hope to have the first issue out in May before Anime North hits. We want to help out Indie authors as much as we can and hopefully this will take off!
Adobe Indesign is the gold standard for magazines, so I am pulling out my hair and learning the basics of how to do an ezine in this software. Trying to be careful about not over committing as I’m working on a Futuristic Canada anthology, writing short stories and taking a novel writing class. Oh, and I have that kraken toddler I have to feed and play with on a daily basis!
