06:20 am - CFS: Gay Lifestyle Monthly
Hello, I'm the new editor for the online magazine, GayLifestyleMonthly.com, and I'm trying to make it as open to the whole LGBT community as possible. For the December issue, I am hoping to get a couple of articles about queers and the holidays, such as Jewish, Christian, Pagan, etc. Even though the calls include fiction, I am more interested in nonfiction, such as interviews, news items, essays, etc.

Thank you for your time,
Ellen

GAYLIFESTYLEMONTHLY.COM SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Fiction: Queries welcome, but not required. Your piece should be about 1000 words. Often, shorter is better. Vignettes are always welcome.

Features: Instruct, enlighten or motivate your reader in about 500 to 800 words. More are okay, if the subject and quality warrants it. The piece must be topical. Commentaries welcome. Articles about events must be dated. We encourage art in support of these pieces!

News: 250 to 500 words. The story should consist of your original copy, not submissions from news outlets. All news must be dated.

Art: Photos, drawings, etc., are highly encouraged. Please submit as .jpg files. Include information about the piece, such as subject, commentary, etc.

-By making a submission, you are certifying you own the rights to the material and are authorized to submit it for publication.

-The editors reserve the right to make necessary changes for punctuation, spelling and grammar, and insertion of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) key words.

-Language appropriate to the topic is required. Since we have so many titles, it’s difficult to set any strict rules, but keep your readership in mind when you write. We believe in free speech, but reasonable limits should be considered. Additionally, we encourage you to use SEO key words that will attract hits to your submission.

-All submissions will be via email. No paper, “hard copy” submissions will not be considered. Email stories formatted as discussed to ellen@gaylifestylemonthly.com or Ellen_gaylifestylemonthly@yahoo.com.

-Copy will be in either 10- or 12-point Times New Roman with standard formatting. Extravagant formatting, colors, art within the body of the copy, etc. is not acceptable.

-Submit only as .doc or .txt files.

-IMPORTANT: At the top of the first page, place your name, address, phone number, email address and, if you are submitting work for pay, your Tax ID number (see below). No work will be accepted without this.

-Author retains rights. We pay upon acceptance. Payment will be based on published word count. Depending on the article, we will pay $.01 - $.015 per word, with a $5.00 minimum. For US residents, you will need to provide an IRS Employer Identification Number (EIN), which is available at http://www.irs.gov/businesses/small/article/0,,id=98350,00.html. It is easy and free to get an EIN online (or via fax or mail). Please follow the link and click “How to Apply for an EIN”. We do not employ IRS W-9 forms.

Wondering if an EIN is the right choice for you? Michelle L. Devon writes in her article “Tips for Freelance Contractors”: “Go to this IRS website and apply for an employer identification number (EIN). This will prevent you from having to provide the freelance employer your social security number. After you have this number, you need not provide the employer with any other information besides your business name and EIN.”

You can find this article at: http://selfemployment.suite101.com/article.cfm/tips_for_freelance_contractors

We will let you know if we have accepted your piece for publication in less than 60 days.

07:17 pm - addiction
Right now in my literature class we are reading/discussing a book called The Cocaine Chronicles. We are focusing on addiction and it's many consequences.

Would anyone be willing to share their personal stories whether it be past, present, friends/family, drugs, gambling, sex, etc...

I know this can be a personal topic so I apologize for prying, but I'm interested so I can better understand, compare real to the ficticious stories in this compilation, and better understand how to help some family and friends of mine.

Thank you.

If you like, you can email my at aspiring_starr@yahoo.com

A NOTE FROM HANNAH: This reading is not work safe & could be triggering.

A NOTE FROM ALAN: While I don't agree to any forms of censorship, I do believe people should be allowed to chose what they are exposed to. With that said; this reading contains some strong language and sexual content, which some listeners may not find appropriate for them.
