New Love Stories Magazine is tight

lovestoriesI would like to begin a bounty pool available to the first person who publishes a story in New Love Stories Magazine, the only stipulation being the story also include baby destruction. I’m throwing in a hundred, any others who are interested in joining the prize pool, please announce. First to publication wins the promised pool, in addition to my amazement and the beauty of the light.

I have to say, I love the submission guidelines here:

For women over the age of twenty. It is designed to invoke in the reader a wide range of emotions relating to love and romance. Each issue will contain a well rounded mix of stories of loving female/male relationships that will stimulate the readers´┐Ż imagination. Adult women of all ages will relate to and live vicariously through the escapades of the female lead in each story. Also included in each issue will be a topical selection of cartoons and poetry.

Is it a weird testament to the freakshow that is writing submissions that, according to Duotrope, people who submitted to New Love Stories also submitted to: StoryQuarterly, The Battered Suitcase, Bartleby-Snopes, The McCroskey Memorial Internet Playhouse, 42 Magazine, First Edition, Stone’s Throw Magazine, Futurismic, Missouri Review, Ploughshares, Tin House, Virginia Quarterly Review

Duotrope should start featuring spreads of writers’ mailing desks and mailboxes, I would look at that.

Damn people be crazy as fuck.

      They pay $300.00 upon publication! I am doing this right now. Look out women over the age of twenty, I’m putting my usual word scramble on the back burner and pulling out the Barry White.
