December submissions worse than sparse...nil

Yep, we have NO submissions for Static Movement for December except for a few poems that we will publish from one of our editors, Margot Miller.

I know that part of the problem is that the holidays are coming rather quickly and everyone is busy with that, but we need submissions if we are going to remain a zine...

I'm sure that another part of the problem is that I have not had the time to advertise on other forums for submissions...and this is because I don't have my own computer in my own space, I'm using my sons for right now and it's not as comfortable for me to be here as it would be my own. I would appreciate any and all help with this, perhaps those of you who have a blog and/or visit various forums, you could advertise for Static?

One of the managers at work is going to start work on fixing my own computer, and when that is done I will be able to go everywhere and tell everyone about us. Meantime, any help is appreciated.

We are still planning on a print copy of Static Movement using RAZAR Productions, and I have a few other ideas, like a print Static Poems copy because of all the wonderful poetry we've had in the zine, anyone interested in this should email me at: printstaticmovement at hotmail dot com (of course you should turn this into a real email address)

RAZAR is coming along nicely, and those of you interested in that print magazine should read the submission guidelines and come on and send in your best work. This is the neatest project I've seen yet for print magazines. Go see at: RAZAR magazine.

I'll be announcing the winner of the Static Movement contest with the December issue...

Till next time,

November

I guess people just don't have time to write and submit. Any submissions we get this month will be published (if accepted) in December. I've been working 6 days a week for the last ten months so I think I'll take the rest of November off from publishing Static Movement. November will be the first month in almost a year that I will have nothing published so I'm going to use this month to worry about that instead of submissions.

Rachel Kovaciny has found that proofing for Static has eaten up a lot of her writing time so this will be her last month editing and proofing stories for us. She will still do a column so we are thankful for that. Her help on the zine has been appreciated, I know it's been a lot of work.

Two of our editors are also helping at RAZAR magazine, Brian Hodges and Chuck Turner.

Speaking of RAZAR, issue two is full and we are working on issue three submissions. Issue two comes in at a whopping FIVE writers:

Michael Hanson
Arthur Sanchez
Frank Gibbard
PS Gifford
Eric S. Brown
