“Meet the Staff” Slide Show on Contact Page

To add a little dark humor to the website, I added a slide show called “Meet the Staff” to the bottom of the contact page. Except for yours truly, of course, these purported members of The Chamber staff are all fictional. I used a random name generator to produce the names and a little background info. I added the job titles and languages they speak and a few odds and ends otherwise. All these photos are from royalty-free, copyright-free (public domain) photos from the websites Pexels and PIxabay, from which I get most of my graphics. These are graphics I often use in posts on on the website in general. A minor side benefit is that everyone can now associate a name with the photo, and no one needs to use some convoluted description to talk about a graphic/character. Here is the slideshow I will add characters to it occasionally.

Submit Your Dark Fiction and Poetry Now.

The Chamber Magazine is seeking articles, reviews, essays, poems, and short stories of approximately 5,000 words or less including flash, micro fiction, smoke longs, drabbles or of any flavor of short fiction that demonstrates the art of writing dark fiction, whether it be prose, poetry, one-act plays, or any other form of literature.  We want to showcase the genre in all its subtlety, intelligence, art, horror, terror, suspense, thrill-seeking, and gruesome detail. We will accept dark humor provided it follows the guidelines below with regards to content and good taste.

To be good short fiction, the shorter a work is, the more power it must pack.

There is no pay for publication, but the author retains all rights. Reprints are acceptable. Multiple submissions of up to three works per submission are permitted. Simultaneous submissions are permitted, but you must tell us if the work has been accepted elsewhere. We usually respond within a week. Works generally appear a month after acceptance.

More details about submissions are available on the website.
