Send WK the books/CDs/etc you no longer want or just cannot move and we’ll put them into our Gallery Space.

QYPA: Questions You’ll Probably Ask

What is your Gallery Space?
Our Gallery Space is located in Downtown Canton at Avenue Arts. We have a space on the second floor of the business which we share with Skycycled Creations. From this space we sell new and used books, CDs, DVDs and magazines. We aren’t really trying to make a profit, the idea is to find a new home for media that needs it.

Will you pay for my overstock/shipping?
Nope. Why? Because we believe this is an even trade. You send us your overstock to get it out of your hair. We have space to put it and thus we distribute your overstock/used books to an entirely new audience.

What about commission?
Case by case basis, more likely to individual artists/authors than presses.

Will you accept damaged/misprinted goods?
Sure, within reason. Most used books are a little damaged. Water damaged with the words inside intact is just fine. Scratched CDs that still play, also good.

Will you give a shout out when you receive the package?
Sure. Email us a link to a site you want to promote and we’ll post it on our Twitter/Facebook.

Will you media swap with presses/record labels?
You mean as in, send WK items once yours have been received? Uh… maybe… case by case basis.

Do you do anything with electronic copies?
Nah. Since there is no real overstock there is no need.

What kind of media will you accept?
Books, CDs, DVDs, tapes, magazines (we are full on magazines at the moment), art work, broadsides, bumper stickers, t-shirts, patches, pins, key chains , wristlets and more. Ask us to find out.

Anything you won’t take?
Porn. Artistic nudity is, of course, fine. We determine what we think is porn. Anything sent to us involving nonconsensual abuse will be sent to YOUR local authorities immediately.
Hate speech. Get off of this page if you hate LGBTQ people, POC, or people of different religions. This also includes advocating body/slut shaming. Its fine to have differing opinions, but when your opinions lead you to hate someone or to make them feel bad, the problem isn’t with them, it’s with you. Any hate literature sent to us will be discarded.

Where should we send our media?
P.O. Box 9364
Canton, OH 44711

Or drop it off at our 2nd Friday shows.

The New June flock of Thirteen Myna Birds is here!

By Juliet Cook

The NEW June flock of Thirteen Myna Birds has arrived!
Offering art and poetry by Chandra Alderman, Mish Eileen Murphy, Jeff Bagato, Marc Carver, and Craig Firsdon!
“The moments creep by like clouds, chess pieces, cattle – There stood death in a t-shirt that said smile – waiting for me to escape this nightmare – now that I have nose-ringed you – seagulls scream over the ocean – an all out unstoppable global nuclear holocaust – I have all these scars on my head, see? – that demon that is inside me – as if he is putting on a mask – earth’s ruling families await you with stinger, wing, mandible and claw”

HERE! –

Grand Showcase 2018 – SUBMISSION CALL – The Wayward Sword

By Writing Knights Press

Never one to waste a good tragedy, the Wayward Sword is putting out a call for short pieces to be collected and released as part of the Grand Showcase 2018 (formerly Grand Tournament 2018).

We expect a large influx of submissions and have limited space in the
litmag (44 pages max), so make sure you are sending your best work because
we will not be accepting everything.

Guidelines are as follows:

Submission Deadline:
July 1st, 2018

(these are guidelines, if a piece is a little under or over, submit it anyway)
Fiction/Fiction between 500 and 700 words;
or
Poems between 4 and 30 lines (including stanza breaks);
or
Graphic Novel/Comic black and white, between 1 and 5 pages (8″ x 10″, 300 dpi);
or
Visual Art black and white (8″ x 10″, 300 dpi).

Email Address:
waywardswordsubs@gmail.com

Rights:
After publication all rights return to Creator.

Release:
Slated for July 27-28 2018.

Compensation:
Creator receives a printable PDF of the issue where the piece is included, with which the Creator may do as they please (including sell or distribute for free).
Those included in the litmag will be able to purchase copies for a much reduced price.

Optional Inclusion:
A 10-20 word bio, a 300 dpi black and white photo 1.25″ x 1.25″

Subject line:
“The Wayward Sword: Grand Showcase 2018 – (Preferred Creator Name)”

Email Body:
Up to 5 pieces

Protips:

no “Roses are Red / Violets are Blue” crap.
Send us your blood, sweat, tears, shit, mucus, broken bones, stitched hearts, brains ripped to shreds,
COMPEL the AUDIENCE!!!!
make the audience care about your main character
Swearing is fine if it works in context, but overuse isn’t edgy, it’s moronic.
Erotica/Nudity is fine, but gratuitous sex isn’t erotica it’s just pornography….

plus, if you write fan-fiction,
change the names of the characters so we don’t get sued.

The only hard/fast rule is: NO condoning hate speech or nonconsensual abuse….
You can certainly represent these issues in your art, but condoning these only serve to trigger victims, not to break open peoples’ minds so they can grow and overcome.
