The Ever After Literary Review

I ran into something accidentally this morning on Twitter.  Someone that I follow, Mr. Dule Hill, retweeted a little blurb from something called the Ever After Review.  It turns out that they are a non-profit bi-monthly literary publication that is now asking for short and very short story submissions.  Here’s their site:  You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.  

As their homepage says, “Ever After Review is a literary journal that focuses on Fiction short stories and Flash Fiction. We accept stories from published and unpublished authors.”  That being said, Gentle Reader, I know for a fact that more than a few of you are Gentle Writers too.  I gently lifted the following from their About Us section; “Ever After Review is a new literary journal that focuses on works of short fiction (up to 5,000 words) and flash fiction (up to 1,000 words). Any genre will be considered for publication. We will accept published and unpublished authors, but we will NOT accept previously published works.

This is a non-profit journal that will be published bi-monthly. The first issue is set to release in January 2012. Each issue will vary in the quantity of stories.

The journal is free; therefore, we do not pay for stories. This is a chance to get your work known by many readers. Please use the submissions link to submit a story.”

The deadline for the January 2012 issue is December 31, 2011.  Now I ask you, how cool is that?  Very cool, indeed, says I

Happy Writing!

I checked out the The Ever After site. I submitted a story. The editor is very thorough and made some excellent comments to my work. I made some revisions based on his suggestions and my piece was accepted. the whole process took three days. I have submitted stories to journals before and didn't here back for months, and only to hear that they aren't interested. Any new writers should definitely check this site out.

Thanks for this write-up! It means a lot to us. We need all the help we can get to spread the word about Ever After Review. Thanks to you and Dule Hill.

Mr. Brooks, that is music to my ears!

Ever After Review - All the best! Seriously. I can’t take credit for the original Tweet to Mr. Hill; “Chaseman210” accomplished that. That being said, have you guys been in contact with Mr. Neil Gaiman yet? I can’t speak for him by any stretch of the imagination; however, encouraging reading and writing are things that he is REALLY good at.
