NEW: 

TWO-PART CONTEST COMING. 
STILL WORKING OUT THE DETAILS.
Note: It will involve an object perspective

*****

Welcome to 
Founder's Favourites! 

I am accepting inanimate or animal 1st-person perspectives.

The inspiration came from reading hundreds of submissions for my two magazines: Halcyon Days and Perspectives. The manuscripts evoke emotion, tug on my heartstrings, or contain unforgettable messages. I see great potential and talent, but they don't fit the themes. It breaks my heart to reply with "not a fit" or "I wish I could accept this, but" within the body of an email.

Enter the reason for this magazine. It has no theme. I want to shine the light on literary talent—period. Content will contain anything I find memorable, creative, unique, visual, and even simple. Accepted contributors will most likely write about things that are emotionally moving. Not sure I will like your submission? Take a chance! You have nothing to lose. And who knows? You may end up being among the founder's favourites!
