David Rees-Thomas was in my Clarion West class in 2011. He’s a wonderful fellow – a sharp reader, a lovely poet, and a good friend. He’s been a Managing Editor at Ideomancer for a while, and he’s decided to start his own magazine along with Darryl Knickrehm, whom I do not know but who has stellar design skills.
The new magazine is called Waylines: Speculative Fiction and Film. They’re looking for submissions of short stories and short films. Their website is professional and easy to navigate, and they will pay $40 per story. It’s a great market, and I’m looking forward to reading the first issue.
There’s also a Kickstarter project, where you can get very cool postcards and such along with issues of the magazine.
Here’s their Kickstarter video. It’s short (under 3 minutes) and is really well-done.
I’m going to back this project on Kickstarter because as a writer I want to support great new venues for the fiction I love to read and write. And I know this is going to be a wonderful magazine.
Here’s a quick peek at their Kickstarter progress, in case you’d like to contribute, too.http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2098471019/waylines-magazine
