Plunge Magazine

There's a discussion on the Strange Horizons  contributor list about gender ratios in publishing.  Here are some datapoints from Plunge:  So far ALL our submissions have come from women, so more diversity would be welcome. The editor is using the blind feature on Submittable to read manuscripts before looking at letters or other identifying data. See our guidelines if you're interested in submitting something.


Muse Fusion Open!

The 2013 March Muse Fusion is now open. Come give us prompts, or claim some for your own inspiration.  We have a "travel" contest going, but any theme is welcome.

What I Have Written

"Thus It Was Written" -- wilderness adventure, today's freebie.

"Spruce Deer" -- 65 lines, $16.25
From "prints" I got the free-verse poem "Spruce Deer" about Amarv, Jeruq, and friends exploring the new territory.

"Avorel's Adventure" -- 90 lines, $22.50
The lost prompt led to the free-verse poem "Avorel's Adventure," about a girl swept away by a flood.
