Looking for something to read? Or maybe a place to submit a science fiction short story or get some great feed back in order to improve your writing? Let me introduce you to an awesome webzine called Aphelion.
Aphelion publishes original work in poetry, fantasy, sci-fi, and horror fiction. It is a non-paying publication, or rather Aphelion doesn’t pay money. It does help new writers polish their craft.
Aphelion Editor Dan Hollifield is a self proclaimed “Godfather” of new writers. He has a passion to help new writers ” learn their chops“.
Imagine a white haired southern gentleman sitting behind a dark wood stained desk, dressed to the nines, and with big dragon fly wings that flit into existence every so often. Sort of like the Godfather/Fairy Godfather of Amateur Writers. Mixing horse heads with pumpkin carriages
(This imagery was sparked by a conversation with Dan on Facebook, by the way. “Listen to me, Kid. If you don’t start usin’ your spell-check, I’m gonna turn you into a pumpkin! Capiche? Gratzie…” )
If you are looking for a place to get some decent feed back or even just to connect with other writers, I suggested you check out their forum. If you are looking for some good fiction read the webzine. If you have something you would like published, submit it. And to make it even better? It doesn’t cost you a penny. Aphelion is free and without advertisements to interrupt your reading.
