    Hey guys,

    I've decided that I want to put together a compilation of super short stories on a topic that I like to write about: people who are out of place. I'm looking for submissions of 1000 words or less on the topic by June 30th. The details that I've worked out so far are available at my blog for now. If you have any questions for me, you can email them to steevo83 {at} gmail {dot} com, or leave a message at the Intimate Knowledge site. I can also answer questions here if it's easier. I'll try to update the website with any changes that I make to the rules/details.

    If'n you'd like to submit a piece, please read all the rules listed on the blog and then email your submission to me at the address above. I hope to receive enough of these to fill a decent sized book.

    Might have to take a crack at this. Been a while since I put down the novel and worked on a short for submission to someone else.

    Nice, I can't wait to read some of these.

    @Beamish - That might not be a bad idea. Consider it considered.

    @Beamish - Haha, interpret it as you will, I left the parameters vague for a reason.

    was my entry for BEAMISH'S 10 word suggestion, obviously I'm not much for communicating ideas with words and will stick to scribbles. Love the premise though ,good luck

    Unfortunately, it was a church, not a brothel.

    @ DJ Stawes - and yet you recognized everyone there, these stories are supposed to be about not fitting in!

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I'll probably also be asking for cover art at some point so if any artists are interested, stay tuned and I'll give more info on that as I come up with it.

    Just a reminder that the deadline for this is in about one month. Also, I think I'm going to post one of mine on my website within the next couple of days. I'll put a link to it here if anyone is interested in reading it.

    Into the Stream is up on my site. I know some of you guys can blow me out of the water on these, but this was a fun piece for me.

    @ Steevo - trippy! A nice bit of dreamy dark story-telling.

    @Alan - The first submission I've received. And it's the best so far! Seriously though, really, really good stuff, Alan. Consider it in 'der. Thanks.

    And thank you, @HEY APATHY, (or should I just call you Mike for short?) it was off the cuff, but I liked where it took me.
