Plunge magazine is a new e-zine that publishes short genre fiction and poetry about queer women. Issue one’s theme is Women and Mythology. It’s available online for free, and you can find it here:
This is the magazine that I won the competition for! My piece is in the flash fiction section and is called The Keepers.
My prize for winning the competition was the piece of art that’s on the same page as my story and isn’t it PRETTY. It’s the coolest thing to have someone read your work and then create something. I am still swooning.
Plunge Magazine (genre fiction starring queer ladies! Get on it!) had a flash fiction contest not too long ago and I entered it. The prompt was:
Write a myth for the unnamed and many-named goddess/unaging being of transitions, between seasons, death and rebirth, child to adult. She walks among us, without consorts or lovers, but not without friends. Write a story, poem, or faux-meta up to 500 words about this goddess/being.
And now the entries are in the newsletter and you can read them all and vote here. There will be two winners (and I would like to be one of them).
So you should all go forth and read some cool stories (there are only five, so it’s not a lot of reading) and choose the best one which is mine! Not that you know which one is mine, but it would be cool if you voted!
