The Normal School

Any up and coming writers reading this? Looking for publication, perhaps in a new, cool, progressively literary magazine? I've got just the ticket...
The Normal School is a new literary magazine. It's coming out of Cal State Fresno and is just gathering momentum for it's first issue. As I'm part of this program I know the editors of the magazine and can say unreservedly that they're a cool bunch, smart and open-minded. (By the way, I have a small editorial/advising role with the magazine, but I'm not the front line of editors or anything like that.)

You can read all about it at their nascent website. Just click on the Submission Guidelines and you'll get a feel for the unpretentious, sharp style of The Normal School. You'll note that they're generally interested in contemporary themes and styles, which will make some genre work a harder sell to them. But they're open-minded and willing to be won over by quality work. Can't get better than that, really!

Cool. *g* Always good to have more places interesting places to submit. I don't have any non-genre short stories at the moment, but plenty of new poems needing a home.
