The first issue of our Heron mini-mag is now available via the links at the bottom of this post. It will eventually be available from our website, but wouldn’t you know that on the day of days our webhosting company has a problem with their file manager so we can’t update the page.
Issue 1 features the flash fiction “Leave Me As I Lessen” by the incomparable Mel Bosworth. Both the print-at-home and audio versions of this issue are free to download until 15 December 2009, at which point the files will be removed from our servers. So grab it while you can;-)
We also encourage you to print out and distribute copies to people in your world that don’t typically read lit mags. Mel’s story is written for a broad audience in hopes of enticing the public into reading more modern short fiction.
To that end, we’re running a mini-contest. The prize? Signed/numbered limited edition Heron prints. The details?
Limited edition prints will also be available directly from Mel while supplies last. Just send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org (be sure to say “please” and “thank you”). And if you’d like to give him feedback on his masterpiece while you’re at it, that would be a fantastic bonus.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a Heron. Play it loud. Then pass it on;-)
