Meet Cute Mag
From the Editor
What’s a meet cute? A fictional scene where a future romantic couple meets for the first time in an amusing or adorable way.
Who are we? We’re an online and print magazine in love with everything romance. We’re talking everything from Jane the Virgin to Jane Austen. The goal of this publication is to spotlight writers who are also in love with the genre but desire for it to include more diverse stories. We’re dedicated to carving out a corner of the internet specifically for romance authors and bloggers interested in producing and discussing diverse stories.
Like you, we’re tired of reading the same type of relationships and want something to better reflect our colorful lives in the real world. We hope to find writers that don’t shy away from the complicated. And that complicated may be writing a story about how someone falls in love with someone from a different religion or the same sex. Complicated may mean recounting a true story of your family’s falling out or how you had to separate yourself from someone you love for your own (or their own) good.
Though we prefer submissions to be romance-centric, we will accept pieces focused on dynamic relationships that aren’t necessarily romantic! For example, parent-child relationships, coworkers, yourself and your country, yourself and your favorite fandom, fandoms and their audiences, etc. Our magazine really wants to start great discussions. We love relationships and believe they are the backbone of great storytelling. We look forward to reading your work!
Both fiction and non-fiction.
Short stories ranging from 300 words to 5,000 words, please. Don’t let our name fool you, we don’t care if the story is not your couple’s “meet cute” moment – though if it is bonus points!
Non-fiction should be between 500 – 2,000 words. We want pieces examining relationships in pop culture. Think the importance of bisexual representation in The 100, ABC’s Once Upon a Time dangerous relationship with depicting rape, or the ever-evolving relationship Star Trek shares with its fans. As long as your topics interesting/unique we want to read it.
