okay, it's me again and once again i don't know what to type. you see all those names on the left there and all those stories and poems. that wasn't a question. but i guess this is our big end of the year close out or something. enjoy. we've tortured some good ones out of these people.
we want interviews people. interview somebody and submit it to us. somebody like abe vigoda.
the big news is the breaking news over there on the right. that's right. a writethis.com/pretendgenius.com production called 'fish drink like us'. it's so big it's got its own website. don't believe me? well, you've probably gone there already but here: fishdrinklikeus.com.
you know how many times we've used that (blank space) trick because we don't have anything to say or we just don't care? only about 3 times. not that many. but we're going to use it twice in this one issue.
which almost takes me down to the end here. but i still got about what? 2 inches to go? let's measure.
The legendary, ineffing, uhm, ineffable home of filth and genius, writeThis.com, has long felt the time has come for the faithless denizens of literachoo to bring tha’ pain to print. In direct terms we mean to collect the most devastating, filthy, poignant, wretched genius you dear readers (and writers) can come up with (some of us have our doubts), and in collaboration with the infamous Pretend Genius Press, publish the greatest anthology of fiction since the bible: 'fish drink like us'.
If you think you have the skill, the courage, the substanz des genies (?) to have your work appear in this book with like minded and equally gifted persons then submit your very best or worst (we don't do mediocre) to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are accepting poems, flash fiction, short stories, and otherwise unnamable literary creations that spark fires and reflower the mindless masses. There is no theme. Repeat: there is no theme. Work previously accepted by WriteThis.com and/or work submitted to WriteThis.com will also be considered for the Fish Drink Like Us compilation. Acceptance by WriteThis.com, however, does not necessarily mean acceptance for the Fish Drink Like Us compilation. If for any reason you would like to submit to WriteThis.com but not submit to the compilation please let us know.
Submissions are open until May 31, 2005. Those who are accepted will be notified by Aug. 31, 2005.
Expect to have your bookstores invaded. No prisoners will be televised.
Our chief prostitute, the national award winning ad writing editor on vacation this month, once confided to Idi Amin, "I'm tired. If you ever decide to get out of politics there's always a place for you with me in Editing." Reportedly, Mr. Amin winced and gestured toward the horizon. It wasn't long thereafter that the unreported deaths of the underground writers who published writeThis.com finally surfaced. Now beginning their second year of obscurity, these awardless amnesiacs have emerged looking pale and out of time sequence.
