SQF revisited - Clever Magazine

Begun in August of 1998, Clever Magazine prides itself as being a publication for the "neglected demographic." The magazine features essays, short stories, humor, recipes, travel, photo essays and more.

SQF: What are the top three things you look for in a story and why?

DK: Writing that fits the tone of our ezine: quality counts. We prefer careful writing—the writer has taken the time to spell check the piece, has thought about the composition, and has something interesting to say. We love stories with a subtle sense of humor or irony, no matter whether it's fiction or travel essay, dark humor is great, be sarcastic if you are good at it. We'll eat it up. Why, you ask? Why not, we're not on the Internet for the money or fame; we do this because we love the idea of publishing quality work. The longer we are around, the pickier we can be. Hopefully, writers who appear on our pages will appreciate the fact that being on Clever is worth bragging about.
