Welcome to 

Founder's Favourites! 


1) I've decided to bring back my old magazine, which was called Twisted Endings, and I'm looking for entries to be a part of Founder's Favourites. Reprints are allowed.

Just when you think you figured out the ending…Most poems and stories have predictable endings. You can usually tell where they’re going and how they’re going to end. And there’s nothing wrong with that. But if you want the unexpected ending or a ‘shock and awe’ experience, you’ve come to the right place!

“Twisted Endings is one of the best, if not THE best, short story mags I have ever read….” ~ Fred Shelton, March 2013 contributor

2) I'm starting a book publishing company called Halcyon House. The website is under construction but it has enough links to get an idea of things to come. Take a look

3) I am resurrecting Perspectives Magazine, where inanimate objects have their say. The guidelines link will be here when it's ready. 

The inspiration came from reading hundreds of submissions for my two magazines: Halcyon Days and Perspectives (returning soon). 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!

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