Subject: Scott Virtes news flash - Aug 2007
Summer is on its way out, days are getting shorter ... which is fine for us night owls. Daylight is just a pain anyway. All that burning heat, and too many distractions. Here's my regular/irregular newsletter on my writing and creative efforts.
At this point, I've sent 132 submissions of poems, stories, art & articles in 2007, and am still waiting to hear from 75 of them.
Tomorrow I am launching "Dark Windows" -- a hefty volume of poems, fiction and "odd clips" from the dark side, sent out as an email newsletter. I think you'll find it packed with interesting work and creative notes.
You can find it here --
I hope you'll check it out, and want to subscribe. It's a suped-up version of this newsletter -- picture this one with poetry, short short stories, dream scenes, and strange quotations added ... less advertising and more meat!
