Garrett Doherty, former editor of Crazyhorse, has started an online journal called Sixfold. It sounds pretty cool: it’s six bucks to enter a story or poems, and then all the writers vote for their favorite within their genre to pick the three winners with cash prizes. It’s more complicated than that, but not really.
For more information, check out the website. I love the idea of writers encouraging writers, and hope in the spirit people will vote accordingly not against good work as competition. We’ll see. I threw a story in the ring and look forward to reading what other people submit.
Deadline to submit for this round is today, but more will be coming soon so mark your calendars!
