Swink is Dead--May Swink Rest in Peace

An anonymous commenter has offered the final word on Swink Magazine, which had recently sent me a rejection letter....but apparently it was a rejection from a death bed. Our commenter says:"Dead as a doornail. Not even the archives exist." Check it our for yourself at

I always feel a little sad when a good literary magazine goes under.

Thank goodness they rejected you. Can you imagine if they'd taken you with them to the crypt? Like the Cask of Amontillado?

TIV: I hadn't thought of that, but you're right. Another narrow escape. You win the prize for finding the silver lining in the rejection today. Just thinking about the Swink Crypt gives me a new lease on literary life.
