Howdy folks! Check out The Round Up Writer's Zine.

The Round Up Writer’s Zine is an online literary zine devoted to fresh and relatively unpublished writers looking for a place to share their work with other passionate and like minded individuals. We are interested in pieces laced in humor, darkness, or both. If it is snarky or laden in sarcasm, bring it on. Most importantly, we are partisan to submissions that are edgy and/or possibly offensive. We accept short stories, both fiction and nonfiction, poetry, quirky essays and personal musings. SUBMIT!

Call for submissions! Issue 2 is now in the making and we want your work to be in it. Writers, poets, illustrators, artists and gobshites If you've got something to say, say it here. We are looking for works that have a fresh style of writing that will entertain and amuse readers, whilst commenting on society.
The subject can be anything at all, as long as it is well written, interesting and for an adult audience. Say what you want to and not what you think you should.

Issue 1 is still available to print and is FREE so get in touch for a taster of what we are about. Handjobzine@gmail.com! A&F

Hi Lit peeps. My humor zine, Shards of Glass In Your Eye!, always has a few essays in it. In Shards #10, just out, essays include "You Can Beat Your Beer Snobbery in 5 Easy Days!" and "Kari Goes to Hollywood," a red-carpet-crashing memoir. There's also a celebrity-sightings narrative and a survey, and a lot of things that are not images. What do you call that stuff litty people are into? Oh yeah, words. My zine has many words. I'm always up for trades! If you show me your words, I'll show you mine.

Hand Job is a new literary zine that is hoping to show a wide range of new and fresh work. We are looking for experimental writing that grabs our attention
We are looking for new writing in a range of formats

Short Stories
Flash Fiction

Or anything piece of writing you would like to submit to make up a new free zine.

We are looking for works that are experimental in form, with a fresh style of writing that will entertain readers.

The subject can be anything at all, as long as it is well written, interesting and for an adult audience. Saying this however, we do encourage pieces of satire and comedy. Say what you want to and not what you think you should.

It can be of any length… within reason.

As well as writing we are also looking for people who either want to help illustrate some pieces of writing or just to have their artwork featured in the zine. 

We are open to all forms of art that can be accessible through our format, so please feel free to e-mail us about any other interesting ideas. We are always open to hearing your great new ideas.

If you feel you can contribute in any way please contact: handjobzine@gmail.com with your work or ideas. We do not open any attachments (all the time), so please put your work in the body of the e-mail.

Have a nice day and enjoy life you miserable bastards.
