The Novel is Dead! I’m Writing an Essay!

December 1, 2009 § Leave a comment

If you haven’t run across the literate literary cartooning of Tom Gauld, it may be because you don’t get your London newspapers as often as you should.  Here in the Brevity corporate penthouse, we have our London papers flown in every morning by private jet.

It pays to stay on top of things.

But the good news is that Gauld’s cartoons are also available on Flicker.  See the full stream of Gauldania HERE.

Or if you want to see how he resolves the essay comic, CLICK HERE.

On Rejection

March 10, 2009 § 2 Comments

short-story-stripBrevity has seen the number of submissions double over the last two years — around on hundreds per month, or up to 400 per 12-essay issue.  This means we are turning away lots of fine work.

Well, it isn’t easy, and we don’t enjoy it, this turning people down. There is no joy in saying “no.”

So to all of the writers who we have had to say “no thank you” to lately, our regrets.
