Some of you may recall I had a YA story published in SUCKER LITERARY last year. Volume II of the anthology is out and available in print and digital formats. SUCKER LITERARY AN ANTHOLOGY (Amazon Kindle Edition)  
Createspace (paperback)  
Amazon (paperback)

Although I didn't submit a story for Vol. II, I did continue on as a Sucker Staff reader. A huge part of me loves reading over other writers' works and assisting the Editorial Staff. SUCKER LITERARY is the brainchild of the fabulous Editor, Hannah Goodman. 

Do you write dark, edgy YA? Have a strong & authentic YA voice? Here's where you can find their Submission Guidelines. They're open for submissions for Vol. III until May 1, 2013. You can find out what type of stories they're looking for HERE.

Hannah is excellent with communication. If you have a question about an idea or story you want to submit, give her a nudge either on Twitter @SuckerLitMag or leave her a comment on the blog. You can also follow Sucker on FB HERE.

Have a writerly week, y'all!


  1. That's cool you read for them. Sorry, not a genre I write.

  2. So awesome! I'm really beginning to love anthologies, etc., and this one sounds so cool. :)

  3. I write edgy books. Dunno if they necessarily qualify for YA. I suppose I could give it a try. Might be fun.

  4. That's really cool! I'm going to have to check this out!

  5. That's a very unusual title. I can't imagine how they picked it out. I'm glad you had a good time as a reader! :-)

    1. Hannah picked "sucker" mostly because of the way you feel in high school or as a teen. Those moments when you're at your lowest or feel like, well, a sucker. :D

    2. OK, I get it. :-)
      Thanks for stopping by my blog. The info about Tut's parents and half-sister is shocking, but don't forget that in the past, European royal families had hemophiliacs and other genetic problem from inbreeding, too. Cultures all over the world have been greedy about keeping money and power in the family. It's only in the past 100 years that there was scientific evidence about the dangers of inbreeding...

  6. That's so neat, Candilynn! Thanks for sharing this. :)

  7. Thanks Alex!
    E.J. I think anthologies are a great way to get started and get your name out. And it's the perfect answer for short story writers.
    Michael, give it a whirl!
    Azia, sure thing!
    Melissa thanks for stopping by. You still on a break?

  8. Thank you Candy! Come submit to us at SUCKER LITERARY!!!!

  9. This is great because I do write in that genre....

    Thanks for the links Candilynn!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. That's really cool that you were published in it, Candilynn! And thanks for the info...this is right up my alley :D
