5x5 Fiction, Angel Zapata, Ezine

5×5 Fiction – A New Ezine

I love it when writers take a chance.  Do something off the wall, unexpected, risky…or maybe just fun with their craft.  One such writer, Angel Zapata, is establishing his own quarterly ezine, 5 by 5 Fiction: Stories Told Loud and Clear.  Here are the guidelines:

“I’m looking for exceptional stories to shout from rooftops. Complete stories (not rantings or poems) must be exactly 25 words long, told in exactly 5 sentences, with each sentence comprised of exactly 5 words.

Any variation from these short, sweet, strict guidelines won’t even be considered. All genres are welcome. Write it, proofread it, and send it in the body of your e-mail to loudandclearfiction (at) yahoo (dot) com. Subject line should read: 5x5_Story Title_Author’s Name.”

What are you waiting for? You know what to do. Five words per five sentences. Write, edit, write, edit, submit. See, it is that easy.

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Erin! Submissions have already arrived in my inbox. My advice for all interested: read my guidelines. Also, don't forget, I'm looking for stories, not haiku-like, abstract, incomplete thoughts.


  2. Aw, this is driving me nuts. I need to words at the end of the 5×5 and nothing works. This is like story meets sudoku.Haha! Hi Roland! I think you meant to address my evil step sister: Erin. ;-)
