Seek Alternative Route Submitted

Thursday, 12 March 2009

I've heard nothing back from the two places I've sent Seek Alternative Route to - oh, how I hate it when that happens - so I've polished the story up some more and sent it over to 42 Magazine. This market is new to me but I think it should be a good fit.

I have to admit I was initially attracted to them just because of the name (I'm the sort of person who can quote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy verbatim.) But their guidelines are spot-on too. I'm going to quote some here just because they cheered me up :

Religious matter: We believe deeply in the ability of humans to create meaning in themselves and in the world without the help of gods or religions. We're not interested in publishing articles, poems, or stories that reinforce the idea that these things are necessary in a meaningful life.

Fantastic. I mean, religion, yes, can't we just get over it?

I'd love to know what you think.
