Flash New Ideas!
I know I'm always saying I'm giving myself way too many projects at once -
- I'm learning Latin,
- Reading a book a week,
- Writing two novels,
- Always writing other stuff as well (like poetry),
- Running three blogs,
- I have two jobs
- And I'm trying to keep sociable.
But I like new projects.
So the other day, I was looking into publishing poetry in magazines but it is impossible to find somewhere! It seems that every magazine out there is ridiculously elite - they only want the people who have been mentioned before somewhere or who have already been published. They want the people who have already got their big break.
But why should we all wait for the big break that always happens to someone else but you?
So I decided to make my own online magazine, dedicated to promoting those artists (of all sorts) and giving them the chance to get known.
I've called it 'The New Frontier Magazine' because I wanted to represent the new generation of fighters.
On this magazine, I will post photography, art, songs, poetry, flash fiction (at most 300 words) blog posts, travel writing, maybe a serialized story, and more.
It's a really excited new project for me because I am really serious about it! I want it to get big! At the moment, it's on Tumblr. I think that will help people to find me and once I've got a big fan base (if I ever do!), I hope to set up my own website domain.
I am currently looking for posts for the first edition. (I'm having 15 pieces per edition) and I have 10 out of 15 posts already! Okay, I don't actually have the documents (and for one of them, I need to do a fashion shoot with my friend!) but everyone who's contributing will send their works when I ask them :)
If you're interested, please email:
I haven't yet got any posts up anywhere, but to support me and the cause (getting artists known), please like/follow these various sites:
The actual magazine on Tumblr:
There's nothing interesting on any of them yet, but there will be soon! It would really mean a lot if you could follow/like it!
