THUG LIT

http://www.thuglit.com/home.html
Send your stories to:
Submissions@thuglit.com
This is a genre-specific mystery and noir website. If you don’t know what that means, then don’t send me your damned story. No Sci-Fi, Horror or Romance. Erotica (by way of sex) is okay, but PLEASE have violence, crime, murder, mayhem and chaos. Or a monkey. We like monkeys. They throw poop.
Stories may be attached as a Word Document (preferred) or cut and pasted into an e-mail.
Contact info we need: Name, address, word count and a short bio. The chosen will be notified by e-mail and on the website.
Fan fiction will never be chosen AND openly mocked on the website. You have been warned.
Don’t get your panties in a bunch if you don’t get picked.  Besides, we’re only giving you a T-shirt, for chrissakes.

  • Okay Thug Lit is not paying market, but I stumbled across them and found their submission guidelines a hoot. Look if poop-throwing monkeys are in your guidelines you deserve a mention.
