Quest for the New Writer

NEW POP LIT, an upcoming new lit web site and print journal, is searching for talented DIY writers. We need fun, exciting or emotional short fiction, clearly written and well paced. Not craft so much as energy and the immediacy of experience. We seek stories and writers with verve and personality. The goal: to represent (as zines represent) an alternative to the same-old same-old.



I'm a former zinester and activist. I've always believed that culture is created from the ground up,…

Are you Ready for WMZ to change it's Appearance? Tell me your thoughts

So, a few years ago I tried to change the appearance of WMZ and it changed everyone else's personal profile pages. I freaked out and changed it back.

I realize this site has looked exactly the same since 2008. Do you like that or not like it?  if I change to a different older theme we can keep personal pages the same. But, If I do a new updated theme (which I assume are much better)  you'll lose your personal layouts.

Now is your time to give me your opinion. Do…

Finding an Audience with Zines

I'm a comedy writer and occasional performer, and am always looking for new ways to find an audience for my material.

The joy in writing comedy is making people laugh, but there are so many barriers to reaching an audience that it can be a frustrating business. A sitcom script is essentially a piece of literature until you can convince a lot of people to make your show. Most of the time, it doesn't happen.

So I've found ways around it - through stand-up, podcasting and even…

Quatros - 4 new ones

QUATROS



when the sky is clear

stars abound



a foreigner

in heavy fog



scarecrow warning sign



outside noise!

the reader surfaces ...



What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning.…

Re-released zines! "Genius (Love)" and "non sense"

As part of my ongoing effort to simplify my life, I've re-released a zine and a chapbook that were out of circulation for a long time. The zine "Genius (Love)" has been out of circulation for 4 years because I never found the time to screenprint the covers! I decided to re-do the cover so I can just…

First Quizzical of June

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



Perhaps the best YEAR in rock was 1965 (I could vote for that). And perhaps the greatest rock song of that year was "Like A Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan. But which take of the fifteen of that song on June 16th, did they use for the record?



Let me set the scene June 15th. Bob has already recorded 9 takes of "Phantom Engineer", and 6 of "Sitting on the Barbed Wire Fence." Now he begins to work on "Like a… Continue
