Peter S. Drang wrote with wonderful news: “Just wanted to let you know that Factor Four Magazine, a pro publication, just bought my story “Metaforming” which was reviewed extensively on OWW. Thanks to everyone who helped polish this story, which combines Pandemic angst, “The Island of Doctor Moreau”, and “Dr. Jean’s Banana Dance Song”.
Rodrigo Culagovski sent amazing news, and the cover reveal for his new story: “I made my second pro sale! It’s “One Night At The Pájaro Azul”, which was featured in the workshop in January. It will come out in the July issue of SolarPunk Magazine. The workshop has helped me immensely, and there’s no way I could have made two pro sales in a relatively short time without it. Thanks!”
Rodrigo Culagovski wants to tell us all: “Hi! My story, “Liz’s Tea House”, was accepted in the pro-market Future Science Fiction Digest. It was very productively reviewed on the OWW. This is something I’ve wanted all my life and you’ve all helped me achieve it. Thanks so much.”
Ethan Sabatella wants everyone to know his big news: Eerie River Publishing’s “Monsters & Mayhem” anthology is now available to order as a paperback!
My story featured in this anthology, entitled “Bölvetr”, follows a young Viking woman on the run from a Wendigo in the winter-blasted North American Wilderness. It’s the perfect tale to enjoy by a nice fire or under a warm blanket while the final blizzards of the season howl mournfully outside.

Another OWW member sale!
Douglas Schwarz wants to share his great news: “Hello. Per a suggestion on the Profile page, I’m writing to let you know of a major sale! (My first, other than a flash piece in Altered Reality.) Earlier this month I received notice that Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine had accepted my story, “Le Sorcier de Lascaux.” This story was posted for a while on OWW (it is now on my shelf), where I received many useful suggestions that helped mold the final version. I don’t know when the piece will be published — many months from now, at least — but I thought I would let you know. All the best.”
2022 is starting off well for OWW members!
And Sara Kate Ellis wants us all to know: “I just wanted to say that my story “The Machine Wasn’t in the Mood” (Now “Sturm und Clang”) will be in a future issue of Metaphorosis. I wanted to say thank you because the reviews on the site helped a great deal; in particular, Leah Bobet’s kept me going when I was about to give up. So, thank you.”
Peter S. Drang is having a wonderful start to 2022. “Just wanted to report two sales and an honor, all coming in the past week. All three stories involved were reviewed extensively at OWW.
Dreamforge (semi-pro) purchased “The Integral of My Life Over All My Choices”, and Nature (pro market) purchased “Dogman Relates the Parable of Context”.
In addition, SFFC, a European science news organization, selected my story “Zeroing Out His Wavefunction” as one of the four best Nature science fiction stories of 2021 (out of 70 stories published by Nature that year).
Thanks so much to everyone’s thoughtful comments, which made these successes possible!”
Huge congratulations, Peter!!
Kathryn Jankowski wants all of us to know: Delighted to share that my fantasy short story, THE FORGOTTEN DEAD, received Honorable Mention in the 3rd Quarter 2021 Writers of the Future contest. The story was work shopped at OWW as “The Mission.”
Anne Michi Hansell wanted everyone to know: “The White Enso magazine has accepted my story, “The Haunted Girl” (formerly The Sherwood Park Fairy); I believe it should appear in its Fall issue soon.”
Peter S. Drang wants us all to know about his latest sale. “Nature: Futures, a pro market, bought my story “Zeroing Out His Wavefunction” which was extensively reviewed here on OWW. A huge thank-you to everyone who helped me zero in on this hard science fiction story about quantum entanglement and human entanglements.”
