    Twilight Times was created to present the works of those writers whose stories "blend" genres, are too "literary" for other zines or seem too mainstream or "quirky" in tone. We're not seeing enough slipstream or speculative fiction submissions from women writers. Not interested in horror, gore, violence or darker works such as psycho-killer tales.

    Send fiction, essays and poetry in the body of an email message to the publisher. Use a blank line between paragraphs. We're unable to receive attachments at this time. No multiple submissions. Payment for the ezine will be $5.00 for original and previously unpublished works. This includes stories, poems, articles or graphic artwork. Work that has been previously published (this includes personal web sites) will receive payment of $2.50. Payment for stories or poems selected for the print magazine will be in contributor copy.

We do link to authors' and artists' websites. We also provide a newsgroup for discussion relating to TT topics and an email address for critical commentary.
