We’re Famous! . . . Kind of

Hello lovely writers, readers, and whiskey drinkers!

Stopping in to give a brief checkup on things happening mag-side and with a reminder that our submissions are STILL OPEN until August 31! Feel free to check out the Call for Submissions and send us your best fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and photography to the tune of desire. (Oooh sounds fun!) Can’t wait to read and see your work.

Some of you may have already seen this, but Ben from Blank Fiction Magazine interviewed us last month! We had whiskey sours and talked about all things NEAT.: what we like to see in our submissions, things to do and NOT do when submitting, and the future of NEAT.

Check it out below! (You can also check it out at Blank Fiction’s website here.)

 

Thanks, Ben!

Another exciting piece of news is that NEAT. now has a listing on Duotrope! (Yay!)

That seems to be it for now. Don’t forget to check back in periodically for more updates and prodding to submit. And as always, keep it #neat.

Submissions Closed

Wow, it’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. First of all, submissions closed last night at midnight. We had another record number of submissions. And by record I mean more than double the amount we got for even the winter issue.

Second, we reached 1,000 downloads total for our first three issues! As of this post, we have 1054, to be exact. This is a milestone that we hope is an indicator of the good things to come for us. Goal: get 1,000 downloads on the upcoming Spring issue alone. Tell your friends, your enemies, that woman on the bus you sit across from every day. Get the word out!

As we come up on the one-year mark (we still have a couple months, but hey, this is our fourth issue, so it almost counts), we keep thinking about where we started and where we are now — what happened in the middle that catapulted us to this place? The answer: you happened. Readers, writers, photographers. We are indebted to you. Thank you to everyone who submitted and to everyone who continues to read the magazine. We couldn’t do this without the support of the literary community.

That’s all for now! We’re looking forward to sitting down with a pile of your hopefully maddening submissions.

Cheers!

TM and Elizabeth

Welcome!
