Welcome to 
Founder's Favourites! 

Submission email has changed. See Guidelines.

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 talentperiod. 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!

If you like variety, this is the magazine for you. It's an online magazine published six times a year. Sorry but without advertisers, printed copies have to be purchased. The reading schedule is ongoing. It is non paying. I accept reprints and simultaneous submissions.
