The summer issue of Blip Magazine is now available on Smashwords as an ebook called Blip Reader 2.3. It is selling for $1.99 and is available in all ebook formats (Nook, Kindle, iPad, etc.). Soon it should be available at B&N, Amazon, iBookstore, and others. This may be a dubious achievement; we are not sure.
When I was young and had to rise at 5 am
I did not look at the lamplight slicing
through the blinds and say: Once again
I have survived the night. I did not raise
my two hands to my face and whisper:
This is the miracle of my flesh. I walked
toward the cold water waiting to be released
and turned the tap so I could listen to it
We invite submissions of 500‑3000 words, fiction and nonfiction, for the fall issue of Blip Magazine. Submissions should be sent as MSWord files (doc or docx) attached to an e-mail with a short bio. You may also include your text directly in the e-mail. Submissions close on or about Sept. 21, 2011. Please send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re pleased to feature an excerpt from James Whorton’s new novel Angela Sloan, just published by Free Press. Check the Features page above or go straight to “Leaving DC.”
