After the utter failure of Ideology Lit and PineCone, it's time for another poorly planned disaster.
This time the theme is "Noir, in a city". That's it. I'll collect submissions for two months, then collect everything that’s worth reading into a pdf. The pdf wont be published like the redditfags, it'll just be for us to look at. If it works out well, maybe I'll put together a little website or tumblr or some shit, but for now it’s just a writing exercise and a chance to get people reading your work.
There will be a $25 prize for best story, delivered through paypal. It’s just a small reward to show appreciation for the work. In addition to that, I can help whoever actually submits stuff worth publishing get published. I've worked in the industry for about 5 years now.
There are no donation or submission fees, obviously.

Submission rules/Information:
1. Send all submissions in a Word or notepad file to [email protected] If you would like, you can put your name on them. Anonymous is fine.
2. Submissions will be accepted until March 10th, 2016, at 4 P.M EST.
3. Since this is just for fun, I have no problem helping people with editing their work. Please indicate in your email if you would like me to assist in editing before I consider it for the magazine.
4. Best story is chosen completely arbitrarily by me. I'll be the only one editing and compiling this. I don’t give a shit about anyone else’s opinion.
5. Along with your submission, you can send one picture from the NY Public Library Public Domain, http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/. It's an easy way to provide an aesthetic.
6. All forms of work will be accepted, but it needs to be related to noir. If you can shit out a noir poem, go for it.

>>7566923
I like the wiki description

"A typical protagonist of the Noir fiction is dealing with the legal, political or other system that is no less corrupt than the perpetrator by whom the protagonist is either victimized and/or has to victimize others on a daily basis, leading to Lose-lose situation."

This will never work because no one wants to be associated with /lit/, and no one wants to waste their actual work on a /lit/ journal. No one who has any hope of ever amounting to anything, anyway.

That's why all these fucking google doc books are what they are, because the only thing people are willing to offer /lit/ is absolute shit.

Thats a totally fair point. I just thought it would be fun to use as a small writing exercise, and for people who are interested in seeing if their work is any good. It's not like I'm trying to set up the next Tin House or something. Nobody even has to use their real name.

Sounds interesting enough. Never wrote anything like that so I'll give it a try. Hope more anons will do the same.
