CALLING ALL WRITERS

RepDigest is looking for well-crafted literature to feature here in the Prose & Cons section. Compositions can range from short stories and free verse to poetry and fiction – whatever sticks against the wall. He encourages you to work through your most promising ideas until something magical appears. Your clever concept can spin in any direction, so long as there is some form of logic and reason. If your draft is a rambling, incoherent mess, Blacktooth will not publish it. Articles must be kickass and sincere. They must reflect your passion for writing and exhibit some form of original thinking, so make your words count!

Subject matter can vary, but please avoid extended universe concepts. Star Wars, Star Trek, Halo, Bat Man, Hunger Games, Harry Potter or any Twilight nonsense are not welcome. For instance, if you submit an article relevant to the Greek Cyclops character, please don't recycle ideas from traditional literature. Polyphemus would be far more interesting if we learned that he was neglected as an infant, that he was a malnourished snowflake. Give reasons WHY he snacks on tasty little Argonauts. The key is to stretch your imagination, unchain your brain and break free from Generica.

Blacktooth cannot pay for your contribution, but he hopes this platform will benefit the authors in terms of additional exposure, that your work will grow to be a bigger part of something special. RepDigest will not publish articles rooted in hatred. Any works that denigrate another person's dignity will be rejected outright. Insults to religion, culture, sexuality or disability will not be tolerated.

Last, don't be discouraged if your submissions are rejected. The articles must be interesting – obviously – else Blacktooth will return your work with kind suggestions on how to improve the product. The rest is up to you. Just remember that rejection makes your skin thicker, so take the hits and keep on writing. We've all been there. Now mash those keys until brilliant fables bleed from your fingers. Good luck…
