Interview with Publisher Phil Slattery Now on Duotrope

At Arkansas Post National Memorial near Gillett, Arkansas, 2020

I was recently interviewed by Duotrope about my work on The Chamber Magazine. That interview is now up. Follow this link to read it.

If you are not familiar with Duotrope, they are a submission engine, i.e. they aid writers in finding magazines, book publishers, and agents to print their stories and poetry. The way they do this is by listing important data on magazines, which their subscribers can search. I have used them for several years and they are a very useful tool in finding publishers. They do charge a nominal fee of about $5/month. What you get out of the website is well worth that $5 many times over. If you are a writer, I recommend them highly. Even if don’t write and only read, they will still be very useful in finding the right magazines for you.

While you are there, check out The Chamber’s listing. It is a good example of how they run their website/database.

Genres The Chamber is seeking include, but are not limited to: horror, dystopian, fantasy, grimdark, action-adventure, suspense/ thriller, literary, science-fiction, historical, mystery/ crime, noir, romance, Western, experimental, cyberpunk, steampunk, weird fiction, gothic/ goth, general, creepypastas, humor or of any combination of the above.

The primary criterion is that your work must be in English. It can be a translation from your native language, but a translation must accompany it in English for maximum exposure around the globe.

New Back Issues Page

The Chamber now has a page for back issues. A link to it will be on the home page and will be the photo above. You will also be able to find it by simply going to the menu at the top of the page.

Within the last month, The Chamber has developed a new way of formatting issues by reverting to something more like the traditional magazine style. Click on the issue’s cover and you will go to a table of contents consisting of list to the latest stories and poems. Now all the past covers can be found on the back issues page so that anyone can search the issues and read the stories and poems as they were grouped when they came out, just like going to a library and picking up back issues of a magazine.

Because this is a recent development, only the three latest issues have this feature. The covers of previous issues will be shown but there will be no links to the associated stories and poems, though a few will take you to a quotation. Of course, as time goes by, this page will become increasingly useful.

The Chamber hopes you enjoy this new feature.
