Midwestern Gothic

What draws you to a zine when you're searching for markets? Midwestern Gothic grabbed me today because the cover of their first issue reminded me of the cover of Frank Bill's new short story collection "Crimes in Southern Indiana" to see the cover.

For Midwestern Gothic This is a non-paying market open for subs up to 10,000 words for their second issue. They are looking to showcase Midwestern writers and noir type stories here. Deadline is May 13.

There's also a contest with the same deadline. No fee, stories to 2500 words and the prize is publication in issue two. The prompt is a picture of a fairgrounds. They'll also be publishing some of their contest entries on their website.
