The Storyteller-Edition 16














These days it's tough for a publisher to stay afloat.  Between electronic books, web books, and other publishing venues, more and more printers of the written word are disappearing...a sad effect of the computer age. For me, this supplies plenty of incentive to support books and magazines in print.

A prime example is The Storyteller. If you've never seen it before, you're in for a treat. It's comes out quarterly, and is devoted to providing publication for writers and quality entertainment for readers.  Short stories, essays, and poems are all acceptable genres for submission. While there is no payment currently offered for submissions, sometimes it's worth a million bucks just to see your name in print.  The cost of a subscription is modest, so do check it out. 

I'm fortunate to have my short story, "The Tip", published in the most recent edition of The Storyteller. The magazine arrived on Saturday, and I've been thumbing through it ever since. With feature columns, twenty-nine short stories, four non-fiction pieces, four essays, and fifty poems, it's definitely worth the price.

If you have a story or poem that you love, and one that you think others would enjoy reading, too, check out The Storyteller. Submission guidelines appear on their website.

One of the Writer Groups that my mom and I used to belong to, had a subscription to this. All of the members of the group liked it. I never did submit any of MY (Frankie Furter)stories to it, butt one of my writer furends did and she got published there.
I don't go to any writer groups any more. Butt the three that I used to go to... all LOVED ME. I'm just sayin.

Hi Pat,

Congratulations on your short story.

If any locals are interested, Regina Williams, the editor, will be at the MWG conference this weekend. She has spoken at Saturday Writers a few times over the years and is inspiring.

Congratulations Pat! I'd like to check it out. I had subscribed to some publications similar and unfortunately they went under. Hope this one stays up! I'll have to check it out.

Wow! Congratulations!! I've given up on my publishing career...it's so hard to get anyone to read your stuff.
