Mouth Full of Bullets is a quarterly mystery magazine that offers the best original fiction and poetry from writers of all levels. In addition to the new print magazine, we will continue to offer the free online version. It will feature the best reprinted stories and poems we receive, as well as professional book reviews, author interviews, informative columns, and more.
Fiction we seek:
· Mystery/suspense of all types (police procedural, private eye, amateur sleuth, cozies, hardboiled, etc.). Basically, if it involves a crime and it's within our guidelines, we'd love to consider it.
· We want stories that feature believable characters who speak naturally, realistic situations that bleed conflict, and surprise endings that stay with us long after we reach the final period.
· We welcome new and established authors.
Poetry we seek:
· Anything crime-related.
Nonfiction we seek:
· We are open to articles and columns related to mystery writing, seeking representation, editing, writing in general, or anything else that grabs our attention. Query with your ideas.
