Pornokitsch wants your short stories
« on: April 09, 2015, 06:47:23 PM »
Hi, this is a blog I read regularly (I think Jared used to post here on F-F), and I just noticed they're looking for short stories:

http://www.pornokitsch.com/2015/04/weekly-fiction-open-for-submissions.html

This is a great opportunity for those that normally take part in our Monthly Writing Contest, although you can't submit those stories (they have to be completely unpublished).
Good luck!

Read three PK originals last night. Absolutely loved the black widow spider YA story. Planning to spend some more time on the site, and hope I can write something to match the high bar.

Yeah it's gonna be a tough one. Working on this month submission here first and then into some PG13 pornokitsch material   ;D

Thank you both - and good luck! Look forward to reading all the stories. It is like having my own secret bookshop filled with stories that no one else has.

Which just makes me sound creepy...

Ahem. After much struggle with my April short story I've started writing the one I wanted to submit to you guys but while the old link still says you're open for submission, the main website tells me you're not currently open for submission. Quezako? @pornokitsch
I'll write it anyway, it already possessed me, but can I still send it?

Not sure where you saw that 'main site' with closed submissions.

His latest update was 2 days ago and he says "Keep them coming, but also - don't worrying about rushing stuff to me. We're not closing submissions at any point in the foreseeable future. If ever. "

Hey Nora, sorry - we're definitely still open! Apologies for the confusion, an old page that has been updated.

Hah! Thanks!
Phew!  :o I'm not as blatantly stupid as Scarlet's comment made me fear. Just definitely not inquisitive enough, but I can deal with that!  :P

Oh I didn't mean to imply anything - I just got a page bookmarked (his book review list) and always check the other posts from there, so probably missed the wrong one.

Oh don't worry, I know you didn't, I'm the one who was appalled at the idea of having disturbed everyone for absolutely no reason. I'm just happy there was a tiny little reason, my raft in the sea of my clumsiness!
