The First Line

The purpose of The First Line is to jump start the imagination-to help writers break through the block that is the blank page. Each issue contains short stories that stem from a common first line; it also provides a forum for discussing favorite first lines in literature. The First Line is an exercise in creativity for writers and a chance for readers to see how many different directions we can take when we start from the same place.

Five [Quarterly]

Founded in 2012, Five Quarterly is an online literary project that invites people who love to read to participate in our editorial process. Each quarter, five new guest editors ultimately select five poems and five pieces of fiction for online publication. We hope that this model will help to introduce fresh perspectives, diversify the face of publishing, and encourage an expanding literary community. Issues are published in January, April, July, and October. Our annual e-chapbook contest opens on Mar 1.

fleasheet.jpgThe Flea

The intent of THE FLEA broadsheets is to serve the Soveraigne Muse, by publishing first-rate poems which accord with Her Ideal of poetic Delight, in an occasional Broadsheet, using cutting-edge Seventeenth Century Technology, & state-of-the-art Alchemy. THE FLEA is friendly to strong poems in Formal Verse, including poetry which might not, for sundry reasons, fit the Style and Orthodoxy of some prevailing Schools and Sects; poems which deploy difficult & bizarre Conceits, or (it may be) use abstruse language not found in every common inn or marketplace.
