vector811Announcing our readers for “TAINTED LOVE”:

 

Notty Bumbo has been writing poetry and short stories for more than forty years, lives in SF, and wonders what happened to the old foghorns he once fell asleep to. He suspects they have been reassigned to guard the entrance to an old bar he once frequented, but he seems to have lost the directions.

Additionally, she has also written naughty stories for the reading series Shipwreck and Write Club SF. If you ever see her, please give her five bucks.

Submit your work by midnight Monday, February 10th. Previously published work okay. By submitting, you agree to be available to perform your piece on the night, if chosen; also, you agree to let us publish it in a chapbook. All submissions should be something that can be read in 10 minutes or less (typically fewer than 1,250 words). Be sure to send your bio as well.

Yes we are multifarious word manglers, deconstructors and put-her-back-together-ers, hedonists, lovers, inventors, and geniuses -in print. In speak, we are awkward thumb and hair twisters, mismatched and clumsy, full of quiet tensions, hushed obsessions-fascinations-addictions-and- squelched-desires-to take each other to the handicapped bathroom and get it on. And so, we figured what better way to quickly and efficiently disintegrate these boundaries than to combine booze and music and get a reckless abandon of limbs, smiles, and louder-than-necessary schmoozing.

    Hello,

    By “Midnight Monday, February 10th”, do you mean the night between the Monday the 10th and Tuesday the 11th?

    Or did you mean the night between Sunday the 9th and Monday the 10th?

    I’ve been staring at the submission page for too long it seems!

    Thank you so much!
