I’m always browsing for different small press markets where I can submit my short stories and it saddens me to see that many print magazines are having to close, or are changing to ezines to get around the lack of funding. If I had my way (or rather, enough money) I’d subscribe to more of these magazines. Usually, the best work appears in places that are off the beaten track, markets that cater for stories that are offbeat, or dare to do something different. The latest that makes me sad is Texts Bones, which is temporarily closed. Oh well, gotta stay optimist. April showers brings May flowers… they say. Hopefully many of these magazines will find funding again soon.
