Let’s get this out in the open: what are your thoughts on the recent Duotrope Debacle?

Duotrope’s sense of humor

For those of you who use Duotrope: ever notice how if you post an update of a ‘rejection,’ the program says Success! because you have successfully updated the fact that you’re a failure?

Duotrope is neat

Duotrope.com does a great service to writers, and for free. I don’t use the submission tracker they have as much as I used to, because it was too easy to obsess over, but I still at least a few times a week go to the ‘What’s New?’ tab on the front page and check out what markets have opened or reopened, as well as new journals that have been added to the digest. It’s a good way to figure out, among the gamut of journals out there, who is currently reading and who isn’t.

Here’s the list from today, with some new places to pay attention to:

Markets that have Opened/Re-Opened to submissions (last 7 days):
1. American Letters & Commentary: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
2. American Literary Review: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
3. Antigonish Review, The: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
4. Boulevard Magazine: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
5. CALYX: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
6. CutBank Literary Magazine: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
7. Glimmer Train Stories: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
8. Global City Review: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
9. Heroin Love Songs: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
10. Interfictions II: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
11. KNOCK: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
12. Ledge, The: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
13. Massachusetts Review: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
14. Metromania Magazine: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
15. Necrotic Tissue: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
16. Nemonymous: Re-opened to submissions.
17. New Letters: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
18. Normal School, The: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
19. Parlor: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
20. Red Mountain Review: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
21. Rose & Thorn, The: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
22. Salamander: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
23. Seattle Review: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
24. Superficial Flesh: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
25. Swill Magazine: Re-opened to submissions.
26. TriQuarterly: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
27. Vignette Press / Mini Shots: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.
28. Warwick Review, The: Re-opened to short fiction submissions.

That’s a lot of stuff. What is ‘Superficial Flesh’? What is ‘Nemonymous’? I feel scared. Internet.

!!!OMG!!!Avery Anthology Gossip!!!OMG!!!

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

If my Facebook feed is correct, and if we can trust the information on the Avery Anthology weblog, then Avery coeditor Emma Straub and Avery designer/art director Michael Fusco got married this past weekend in an impressive power grab at indie giant Avery House Press. I admit that I did not try to contact Emma and Michael for a comment, nor did I ask Emma’s permission to use this yummy picture. Instead, I just sort of clicked around the Internet for a while.

Anyhow, now I understand the inactivity on Duotrope recently – instead of reading submissions, they were getting married and eating a lot of chocolate.

Congratulations, you two.

Now when is Avery #4 coming out?
