I'm extremely thrilled to talk about a new literary magazine called Scribes*MICRO*Fiction. I'm one of four editors running the show, which includes our head honcho Edward Ahern and our fabulous submission editors P.M. Ray and P.C. Keeler. The magazine is 100% online and free to read and publishes on the 15th of every month. There have been 2 issues so far, featuring an amazing array of writers, poets, and artists.
We wanted to highlight writing that gives readers a brief glimpse into another world - actually, many other worlds and viewpoints. As such, we publish very short writing, about 100 words per piece. Each work is like a handshake - enough to introduce a reader to a writer, but with the full conversation yet to come.
It's wonderful to be part of a magazine from inception, and here's to many more issues forthcoming. Check out brand new issues HERE on the 15th of each month. Hope you enjoy reading them!
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
I am a freelance writer and poet with over a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my family. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
