New Year, New (and Old!) NiftyLit


Dear Reader,

We recently sent out our monthly newsletter (you can subscribe to our newsletter here), which contained some updates about NiftyLit that we thought were worthy of publishing as an article on our website. So, here are those updates… happy reading!

Whelp, here it is. 2024. And we’re so far into it already that we can’t even justifiably wish you a Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe NiftyLit is two years old. We’ve been through a lot of changes, and there’s many more to come, but what has not changed is our commitment to publishing exceptional art and writing. On the magazine publishing side of things, we will continue to lightly publish new content each month for the foreseeable future (though you may notice a drop in the number of new publications per month–a result of a temporary closure for submissions and restructuring of our publishing model, team turnover, etc.). We are bringing in editorial interns and readers to help shore up our team, and just opened for nonfiction submissions (by the way, we have been less active on social than we’d prefer to be… so we can use any help we can get spreading the word about being open for subs!). We hope to open submissions for flash, fiction, and poetry very soon. And, while we are releasing less new content, we intend to feature more previously archived art and writing in the coming months. The aim is to do a better job of showcasing our existing contributors, such that we may continue to recognize their important contributions to our still-formative years of operating the magazine and the company at large.

On the technology side of our endeavors, we have some novel pursuits in the form of a publications marketplace at (which is still in beta but we wanted to give you a sneak peak!), where limited runs of previously published content will be available as downloadable, digital editions. We are developing this site alongside Chainletter Labs, and are excited to share more as we continue to roll it out. For those of you who are also writers or other content creators, ChainLetter is building some exciting features in the area of easy-to-use IP ownership verification and protection. If you want to learn more, please do not hesitate to contact us.

This month, we’re publishing just one new piece, nonfiction by Tremain Xenos. From the archives, we are featuring poetry by Ana Fortuna and flash fiction by David Capps. Enjoy!

Last, we are still accepting applications for editorial interns and readers. If you know anyone who might be a good fit, please encourage them to apply! Visit our Submittable site for more info and to apply.

Thank you as always for your continued support.
~The NiftyLit Team
