Choosing the stories this month was quite challenging as we had over 50 submissions. There were stories I enjoyed which didn’t end up making the final list of selections and I’m proud to present all five of these stories. I’m also pleased that we have writers who are currently living in four different countries in this issue — Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, and the United States.
Finally, I’d like to let people who are considering submitting to Kazka Press know about some updates to our guidelines. We’ve increased our pay rate to $15 per story and we’ve also loosened up some of the submission formatting guidelines. In addition, all of the themes which we have announced are open for submissions as of this moment. So that means that right now there are SIX different themes for which you could submit a story! The first of those, OUT OF TIME, will be the basis for our November issue.
I hope that you enjoy reading these stories as much as I did. If you do, please comment on the stories and/or share them on Facebook and Twitter. I know it means a lot to authors to see people appreciating their work.
Until next month,
