See that beautiful banner up there? It could be yours~!

Hiya guys! AMWC now has a new look! =3 After months of staring at the green, grassy template, I decided some simplicity is in order so I changed it to this nice clean design. AND since this template has a customizable banner, I decided to give anyone who has a good banner design a chance to showcase their talent to the visitors who drop by the site!

As you can see, I already have my first submission from Josh from Josh Laboratories. =3 Beautiful, ain’t it? [UPDATE: I’VE SINCE CHANGED MY TEMPLATE BUT IF YOU’RE KEEN, YOU CAN STILL SUBMIT YOUR DESIGN.]

If you’re interested in submitting your design, do email me your banner at aspiringmw[at] as well as the site you wish me to link to. The banner will be on show for one month or until I receive the next good submission. =3

Dimensions are 770 x 140 pixels.

AND you can definitely count on me to increase your exposure on the AMWC Facebook page as well as Twitter.

Have fun!



Have a piece of speculative fiction? Submit it to Expanded Horizons!

Do you have a piece of speculative fiction waiting in the bowels of your computer? If you have written a story that takes the unconventional route and would like to submit to a magazine, Expanded Horizons may just be the place!

So what’s speculative fiction? Well according to Wikipedia,

speculative fiction is fiction genre speculating about worlds that are unlike the real world in various important ways. In these contexts, it generally overlaps one or more of the following: science fiction, fantasy fiction, horror fiction, supernatural fiction, superhero fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history.

The term is used this way in academic and ideological criticism of these genres, as well as by some readers, writers, and editors of these genres.

You can also read all about it at Lost Books Archive.

Before you submit your fiction to Expanded Horizons, be sure to read their submission guidelines carefully. Good luck!
