Vending Machine Press
From the Editor
Vending Machine Press is a new and independent literary journal aimed at giving writers an avenue for their writing to reach a wider audience. We publish every other month and every issue we publish the finest flash fiction and poems from around the world.
It’s extremely hard being a writer, constantly dealing with rejection and the constant self doubts so VMP tries to provide a place where a writer can submit their work and hopefully be part of the history of the journal in some meaningful way.
I publish poetry and flash fiction only. There is no theme write whatever you like. It could be about the love of your life or about wandering around drunk in Wal-Mart at one in the morning, whatever it is make sure it is your best work. I do tend to like stories that deal with the trials and tribulations of ordinary everyday people, whether that be in a contemporary context, sci-fi, slipstream or cross-genre.
Sometime in the near future the authors who have been published are going to be invited to an event in a bar to be named closer to the date where we can all get together and talk about writing and get to know each other and get drunk.
