It Begins!

Hello, this is a project to help support, advertise, and display works of short fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. This zine is dedicated to up-and-coming writers who need a place to start their careers out at.

What should you expect if you are a reader? Simply put amateur writing of highish quality. Not to say we are professionals, but that it isn't "leet" speak either. U no wat i meen?

What should you send if you are a writer? Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, experimental prose, quirky tales, and just about any thing entertaining. Word counts should be in the smallish zone, that is 2,000 words and below. Longer works can be submitted but might not be published.

What do we not want submitted? We do not want rants or raves about heated discussions, i.e. this is not a public debate forum. Papers written on topics such as "why my religion rocks and everyone else can *#*@%" will simply not do.

How do you submit? Send submissions to with "Streets Ahead" in the subject heading. Please also include your name, a brief bio (less than 50 words), and your website (if you have one).

We are dedicated to bringing the very best in the very amateur.


  1. Admirable of you Daniel to allow small-timer, underground writers a forum here, but it seems -- and I'm no critic but -- your site itself could use more advertising.

    Tell you what, I'll print off a few flyers of Larks Magazine and post them around some places in my town. I could also make small promotional vid on youtube if I get the time too. Just like to do my part to help out small publishers that take chances.

  2. Sure, sounds great. I put some up around my local college but I need to go put more up. I actually have a flier made up on my Scribd for just such an occasion.

    Thank you!
