The first issue of DeadLights is scheduled for release on February 1, 2017 (both print and digital editions).
The editor has opened a second reading period, now until February 3rd, to curate submissions for the next issue.

Token Payment: $50/short fiction; $10/flash fiction; $10/poem; $5-$10/creative nonfiction; $40-$80 for cover art. All writers receive a contributor’s print copy.
