Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
The Disappointed Housewife is alive and well and living in a newly disclosed location: thedisappointedhousewife.com.
First of all, please navigate to the site and immediately follow. We need to build a readership in a hurry so that all the terrific, intrepid writers can get plenty of eyeballs on their work.
While you’re there, poke around, read the Editor’s Note, the mission statement, and the submission guidelines. Then sample some of the pieces I’ve gathered for the launch. There’s already some fiction, a number of poems, a couple of essays, and a graphic piece. I already have more things lined up for later in the week too.
You can browse the site by scrolling down the main page. Everything is there. But you can also use the navigation bar on the right to select one of the categories: Fiction, Essays, Poetry, and Faux Forms & Genres. Later the site will organize itself into monthly issues (click on a particular month) so I don’t have to!
I hope you enjoy the mag, and please start spreading the word by following, reblogging things you like, catching The Housewife’s Twitter feed, and submitting your own offbeat work. As you’ll see, I’m looking for the kind of material you won’t find in other literary journals – flaky yet erudite, intelligent yet unconventional. It’s fun!
To help get things off the ground, I’ll be reblogging Housewife pieces here quite a bit, so keep an eye out. If I could get half my What The Hell followers to sign up soon, we’ll be off to a flying start.
Oh, and remember: it’s OK to tip at The Disappointed Housewife. I give authors the option to publish their PayPal or Google Pay addresses, which you can use to show your appreciation for their work. PayPal has no minimum payment, so you can toss ’em 50 cents … or 50 bucks!
