The Dying Art is a small online magazine publishing and promoting off-beat literature that would be overlooked elsewhere or overshadowed by pieces closer to current literary trends. Currently we are accepting short stories and poetry.
The Dying Art is currently accepting submissions. Send all submissions to <email@example.com>.
With a strong live reading under our belt, I believe we are ready to get back to the business of reading and writing. The turn out at the reading met the higher side of my expectations, and I was very happy with the way our work was received. There will be another event, probably in the late spring or early summer.
The next issue will be a particularly good one. This issue will feature some of The Dying Art's favorite writers in fiction and poetry, as well as some new writers and some cross-overs. There is still some time for submissions, and some submissions that are accepted will end up in the fifth issue. Thanks to all the contributers so far, and special thanks to those readers who voice their preferences on a regular basis.
Here's the official call for papers:
