John Picacio and Shimmer

I’m very, very pleased to announce that Shimmer’s spring cover will be graced by the art of World-Fantasy award-winning artist, John Picacio. For the spring issue, we’ll be taking a look at the role that art plays in fiction. For this issue, the cover art comes first and the story follows. We’ve teamed with Liberty Hall Writers to host a contest where we provide the cover image as a trigger to the writers.

We have other surprises for the spring issue as well, but I’ll wait to mention them. The contest starts on the December 22nd. To play, you must be a member of Liberty Hall by the time the contest begins.

Did you know you can support Mary Robinette on Patreon!

    Mary, thanks for the promo! 🙂

    There’s a very good reason for the ‘invitation-only’entry into Liberty Hall. It protects you and your work from idiots, and us as well. The end result is a spam-free community of very dedicated writers and a hell of a lot of fun.

    It takes me or another admin about 5 minutes to issue you an invitation once we see the submission, and at least another 10 or so for you to do your part.

    If you’re interested, please DO apply.

    I’m now a member. 🙂

    After the holidays I think I’ll try writing the weekly Flash. I like the idea of a time limit instead of a word limit.
