Calling for submission and advertisers
« on: October 21, 2009, 11:46:14 AM »
I am looking for submissions to my magazine--Perspectives.  Perspectives serves the writing community by providing its readers with an intriguing look at the world through the eyes of inanimate objects. The content is unique; it's unexpected.  It dares to be different. 

The premier issue, July 2006, featured stories and poems that revealed the world through the eyes of: a fish, a soul, a wooden clock, a hundred dollar bill and more. 

Who writes for Perspectives?  New and published writers wanting to challenge their imaginative ability by giving inanimate objects human qualities. 

Visit http://1perspectives.webs.com for details.

Many thanks for this. Could you clarify if this is a paying market, and if so the fees on offer?

Nick, it's low paying ($20) because I'm paying writers out of my own pocket.  Until more advertisers come on board, that's the best I can do.  I hope this doesn't deter you from submitting a story/poem.

The sample issue on the website also includes stories/poems from the perspective of a fly, a houseplant and a mosquito, so it seems that the term 'inanimate' is used quite loosely. Not a criticism, just an observation!

Yes, I know; the soul, flies, mosquitos, and such are "living things."  Back then, I was accepting everything that came through just to fill the magazine.  I learned a lot since then--including how to stay on track and how to say, "No."

So in fact it is strictly inanimate objects now?
