Fiction Writing for
the Unholy Biscuit
A long time
back, about five years ago, I finished up a series of ezines for which I
edited. After the embarrassingly-long hiatus, and a lot of deliberation,
I've decided to fire up the Unholy Biscuit for at least one more issue.
I do a lot of writing and editing for my day job so I'm lucky enough to
get my creative fill between 9 to 5 every day. However, the reason I
miss the ezine is because I get sick of my own voice and writing style
quite often so it's great to read stuff from other people. It also
helped me meet a bunch of great (and sometimes creepy) people over the
Interwebz, and despite it being half a decade since the last issue I still keep in touch with them. Especially the creepy ones.
So, the call out is for new submissions. As you can see if you flick
through the archive, I am very relaxed with the restrictions on genre,
style and content so long as it is excellent writing. However, please
note that this time around I'm not taking poetry - I was never very good
at judging or editing poetry so your work would be wasted on me.
Also note that although I'm using the term 'fiction' very loosely too
(by 'loosely' I mean 'disregarding the entire definition of the word').
I don't want a biography of your Grandma's golden years, but if you have
a good story which is written in first person and is happens to be about
you, I'm not going to split hairs. Was The Dice Man fiction or
non-fiction? I don't care, it was good.

Writing for Titty Biscuits
This I'm a
little more hazy on. All I know at this stage is that it'd be great to
get more features for the main part of the site, the kind of which you
can see on the
It could be a great written anecdote, some kind of graphical thing, a
video, an ebook, column series - heck, I don't mind. However it's worth
mentioning that one of the main reasons I don't update more often is
that although I write a lot of stuff myself, I rarely think it's of good
enough standard to put online (there's enough self-important drivel
cluttering up the place as it is).
I also prefer to keep the features at least semi-comedic, since I keep
calling this a comedy site even though that aspect gets diluted often
with other non-humour projects.
But if you think you've got an idea which would pass muster (maybe you
need help bringing it into fruition?) then we should talk. As always I
don't expect to have your unique content for free, so we can chat about
that too if it's something I'm interested in. Usual email address
