Update: New Videos at The Chamber’s YouTube Channel

The Chamber's YouTube Channel

Two new videos have been added to The Chamber’s YouTube Channel. One talks about changes coming to the Channel, while the other gives tips on submitting short fiction to The Chamber. Please be merciful in critiquing these. They are first steps in a skill that I am far from mastering yet.

Why The Chamber Publishes at 10:00 a.m. CDT on Fridays

The Chamber tries to gain the maximum exposure it can for the writers it publishes, not only in the US, but around the world. To assist people in deciding whether to submit works to The Chamber, I have added the following blurb to the top of the Submissions page:

In order to gain maximum exposure to the English-speaking world, new issues appear Fridays at 10:00 a.m. CDT/4:00 p.m. BST/8:30: p.m. IST/1:00 a.m. AEST (Saturdays).

Submissions | The Chamber Magazine

For those of you who may not be intimately familiar with time zone terminology, this breaks down as follows:

  • 10:00 a.m. CDT is US Central Daylight Time. This is the time in Chicago. It is 11:00 a.m. in New York City and 8:00 a.m. in Los Angeles. Publishing at this time gets exposure to all major population centers at a time when people are awake (having had their morning coffee or tea) and going through their day. Fridays were chosen, because, reportedly, many people are deciding what to read over the weekend on Fridays. That is why some writing groups and organizations advertise this as “Fiction Friday”.
  • 4:00 p.m. BST is British Standard Time. This is the time in London, England.
  • 8:30 p.m. IST is India Standard Time. This is the time in Mumbai, India, which has a large English-speaking portion of its population and probably the most English speakers between Cairo and Sydney.
  • 1:00 a.m. AEST is Australian Eastern Standard Time, the time zone containing the most populous cities in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, etc.)

Articles, updates, and announcements may be published at other times depending upon various factors including simply experiments to determine what practices garner the most readers or to focus on readers in a particular time zone. For that reason, some posts will appear or will be repeated at times such as 6:00 p.m. CDT or 3:00 a.m. CDT.

To do your own time zone calculations, I recommend using TimeandDate.com.
