The Midnight Diner is now looking to become a regularly published paying market, and to that end, is raising money. In their own words:
The Midnight Diner is a hardboiled genre anthology with a Christian slant. No restrictions on God, no restrictions on reality. Didactic preachy works are dismissed unceremoniously; we’re looking for high quality works that are uncompromising in craft, content, and quality. Since 2007, The Diner has been released as an annual, print anthology. For the time being, the first three volumes can be found here, here and here. However, like any good creation, we’re going through changes. Evolving, as it were.
At the beginning of next year, the Diner will move to a quarterly, online format. For a nominal fee, subscribers will have access to exclusive poetry, nonfiction, short fiction and art, as well as an original serial novella. Each year’s content will also be released early the following year as a print and digital anthology. We are also switching over to a paying publication, as opposed to the prior Editor’s Choice Award model.
I look forward to seeing the new format, and would encourage anyone interested in seeing this sort of fiction flourish to take part in the fund drive.
