apologies for hawking my filthy wares, but i'm starting a new monthly collection of fiction, illustration, design or anything that can be thrown in the direction of firstname.lastname@example.org
it'll be super.
or a website? And when's your deadline?
for anything in particular?
with regards to writing: short fiction would be greatly appreciated. unique styles and topics - as broad a spectrum as you want to work to. if fiction isn't your focus then editorial style writing/opinion pieces is/are also welcome. art, design, music and literature seem to be threads that are already emerging. plain 'reviews' will not be appearing.
design & illustration: we're really looking for as broad a selection of styles and processes as possible. you're welcome to also submit photography but it's not planned on being a huge focus.
"Is she good-looking?", you ask?
Yes and no.
but the way it's being put together has some magazine like qualities.
only without the main quality of.. being a 'thing'.
and there's no deadline set as yet, but i would have thought january 22nd is realistic.
favoured subjects/no-go areas for writers?
art, design, music, literature.. these are all welcome. but please feel free to submit whatever you feel is strong - there are preferred subjects but good writing is good writing.
you should get in touch with my friend Matthew who is an excellent writer of filth
check it out
well futile short fiction if you want it...proper dark!
how short do you mean?
It has a beginning, a middle, and an end.
like 3 A4 pages or so of stuff.
donate our emo christmas haikus.
There's tons of worthy material dotted around these pages. Someone should compile the best bits. Before NME does.
I think Anschul once said that DiS should just print out and publish some of the 'classic' threads.
I used to go on a mod messageboard and we were so impressed by our own ramblings, a 'best of' was often mooted. But then when you think about it, only the people who contributed would have any interest whatsoever!
where they print off a bit from some chatroom. They should do that with us, it'd be great!
I love Pashmina
i could be wrong........
I've never been able to work it out!
Ok, which threads of ours should be printed?
I nominate: The Secret World of Alex Mack, and that one with bobbygeorge's housemate.
The One With Bobbygeorge's Housemate (gosh, it's like an episode of Friends) had me crying with stitches when I read, and also made me jealous that I wasn't around to contribute.
Mmm mmm, I love mixing them metaphors.
that one about Bamos forgetting stuff, which turned into the Rodney Dangerfield marathon.
Grindrod got no respect for that one.
