Not Shutting down yet…

Though it is tempting…

The third volume of VOICES FROM THE FIRE is out, featuring more prose than usual now that the cruelty of April for National Poetry Month has subsided that was volume 2.

Featuring spectacular cover art by that loveable renegade rascal Dillinger and illustrations by James Maj, R. Keith. Shane Allison and Danny D. Ford.

As always VOICES FROM THE FIRE along with Dumpster Fire Press is a work in progress and I’d like to thank all the contributors and readers for bearing through this and your nigh infinite patience. It’s a hell of a fight against censor bots and corporate shills to get this out to an audience who appreciates what the small press has to offer and that’s what makes it worth it…

The genuine appreciation that comes forth after I’m damn near close to throwing in the towel on this anthology and keeping it only an online journal…still something to be said about holding a tangible copy in your hand.

As always via the submissions page on here, VOICES is taking submissions for prose, poetry and art. Guidelines can be found on the “about” and “submissions” pages on the site.

If you want to preview what has been going on, check the VOICES FROM THE FIRE blog from May to June 25th. If you want to contribute in keeping DFP afloat go ahead and buy the book as there will also be a cheaper black and white version forthcoming. A link to that will be placed within in this post, god (who I don’t really believe in) knows when…

Until next time when volume 4 causes me to either quit or slit my wrists…

actually don’t worry about any of that… I need something to hate…which is somehow something I love.

Being socially awkward and/or self destructive with a semi-good nature isn’t easy.

Stay surreal…
