June Jitters Over Market Closures

Hi Everyone. Happy June, usually my favorite month as it's my birthday, and many of my friends have birthdays as well. My daughters were very creative thanks to encouragement from my girlfriend, and the three of them secretly prepared art and cute little presents to surprise me after we came back from a birthday lunch of all-you-can-eat shabushabu. Now to stay motivated despite the humid weather that's moved in on Japan. I've been piecing together enough paying work to carry on, and writing new stories. My story revisions and readings kept me busy enough that I have not submitted a ton and have not updated the blog until now. Lots to do! I hope everyone is making it through their struggles and doing well enough. I'll jump straight to the deadlines list this time around after noting two recent closures.

Closures: Deep Magic announced their permanent closure. They just released their Best Of anthology Vol.2 and I highly recommend getting your hands on it. Their Vol. 1 was recently on sale, and you can also look forward to their Summer Issue. Yes, part of me still hopes they'll open again, but it doesn't look that way. The board members have other priorities they need to focus on moving forward. This was disheartening, as they have found some wonderful stories and artwork in every issue. I also had a good experience working as a First Reader with their team. I wish them all the best of luck with their other projects.

The other closure is Departure Mirror Quarterly. I'm not sure if they have publicly announced it, but I was contacted by them as I had submitted a story and a collection of poetry to them. Very sad news as well, since they seemed to be an excellent place to submit mixed genre or slipstream works. Edit: I really didn't want them to close apparently; still had them listed. Have now moved it to the closed category *tears*.

Edit: also wanted to mention that Clarion West is doing their Write-a-thon this year. Registration started on June 7th, and signups for classes/events begins on June 14th. I loved the little bit I participated in last year.

Thank you, Victoria, for notifying me of a few more markets I needed to include. There are always more places to consider subbing, even as we lose some excellent ones...

Some updates to every section, especially to the lists of deadlines in both general pay grades. Note: added further updates on 6/20/2021; more updates after meeting my own June deadlines.

Good luck all with the writing and subbing!

Personally, I use ProWritingAid to help revise my writing. It's not always right, but it's another helpful tool for wading through revisions. If you want to try it out, use this link to sign up for a free account: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Account/Register?rafid=xNnjM. If 10 of my friends use the link, supposedly I'll get a one-year license. Yay!
