Say... News

The slightly delayed issue of Say... is coming together. Depending on the holiday crunched schedule of our printer, it looks like we’ll be mailing #5, Say...have you heard this one? to subscribers, contributors, reviewers and retailers around the first of the year.

This latest issue has:

A comic by Elaine Chen.

Poems by Peg Duthie and David J. Schwartz.

Stories by Hannah Wolf Bowen, Stephanie Burgis, Craig Laurance Gidney, Larry Hammer, Sandra McDonald, Catherine M. Morrison, Karen M. Roberts, Jannie Lee Simner and Sonya Taaffe.

And with #5 being published that means it’s time to start getting ready for #6, about which there’s this bit of news. The previously announced invitation only nonfiction issue, Say...are you from around here? has been pushed back to next fall owing to time constraints and in deference to the wishes of some of the contributors. Therefore, the next issue will be whatever passes for a “regular” issue of Say...

Announcing, then, issue #6 of Say..., which will debut at Wiscon in Madison over Memorial Day Weekend, answering the question, “what’s the combination?”

The reading period will open on January 1st and close on April 15th (easy enough deadline for US citizens to remember). As usual, stories and comics that answer, explore, provoke, deny or defy the question should be sent to my attention via the post to PO Box 1304, Lexington KY, 40588-1304, USA. Poems doing the same should be sent via e-mail to Alan DeNiro (adeniro at rocketmail dot com). Unsolicited electronic submissions of anything other than poetry will be deleted unread.

We’re going to tighten our focus down on the theme a little this time. We want to see work about keys and answers, and about unifications and joinings.

Send something, won’t you? If we like it, we’ll give you ten bucks and your work will appear in a spiffy perfect bound zine with a full color cover. Tons of indie press street cred for all!

(If you want to read the next issue, or any of our issues, you should subscribe, which you can do here for now. Later, there’ll be another place you can do the same thing. Watch this space for details.)

Now I’m off to find wherever the hell it is on the internet that indie comics creators hang out and tell them the same stuff.
