    Torn World

    May was Sea Monster Month at Torn World, and we released 6 stories, four poems, 11 pieces of artwork, and 22 articles, all on the topic of sea monsters! See the entire list here!

    We also opened pre-orders for our first print anthology:

    Pre-order the hardcopy anthology and get a FREE copy of the e-book! Pre-order lasts until I've got my copies on hand - which should be mid-June.


    EMG-zine is safe for another 6 months! Our subscription fundraiser means you'll keep getting awesome columns and features from our great writers until June 2012. Any subscriptions, donations or sales of anthologies during the month of June count towards programming new features at the EMG-Zine site. (You'll note that we already have individual art pages now, and you can pledge your subscription credits to artists, as well as writers!)

    So, we have new themes to work on!

    January 2012: Dragonflies (we're breaking from the usual Chinese New Year theme, because dragons were the theme last May!)
    February: Steampunk
    March: Centaurs
    April: Plants
    May: Sea Monsters
    June: Towers

    Sketch Fest

    Sketch Fest #14 occurred on May 20-21, and we had a record number of people participating! Can we break that record again in June? Let's find out at Sketch Fest #15, June 10-11!

    Check out all the sketches from Sketch Fest #14 and consider supporting the site and the artists by buying a sketch!
