The weather is cold in Pittsburgh. The Old Soldier is on duty early (6:00 a.m.). Several inches of snow have already fallen on the city and we are expecting more snow today. But the cold weather won’t keep the Old Soldier from marching forth into Little Italy in search of cold beer and ideas about life and writing.
The high will be 29 degrees.
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister writers of erotic flash fiction! The weather may be cold outside, but the fiction is hot here at the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. The guest writers who write the hot fiction that I publish come from all over the world. They are serious about the craft of erotic flash fiction. I have always thought that the best erotic flash fiction is not only good entertainment, but that it is also art.
Remember, the Submissions Department is now open year round. I still get submissions from writers who obviously have not read the submissions guidelines.
The competition is much too fierce to make such a rookie mistake. This is a paying market. And a writer has to approach the submissions process in a professional manner. It’s always a good idea to read the magazine you plan to submit work to. Try to figure out who is the target audience.
Then submit copy that makes it clear that you care about the printed word. It’s not easy being a writer. And it’s difficult to break into a paying market like the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, but it can be done. Just look at all the guest writers on the front page.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
