I recently submitted one of my stories to the local Utah Valley University speculative fiction magazine called Warp + Weave. Mostly students and local authors submit to this magazine so I figure I have as good a chance as any in receiving an acceptance letter! I also figure it's a good place to make my first publication if I can!
The story I've submitted is entitled 'The Irony of War'. It addresses the ethical and moral dilemmas seen in all instances of armed conflict, and attempts to reveal the good, the bad, and the irony that is revealed during such tragic events.
I have my fingers tightly crossed for this story, because I feel like it is pretty darn good! :)
More information about the magazine I've submitted to can be found on warpandweave.net.
Cheers! And wish me luck!
