Submissions are welcome of short stories and poems to Awkward Silences, provided they are short. It would be helpful if they were HTMLed in advance, but if they're not, I really don't mind that much. Oh! And include a disclaimer saying who the characters belong to.

To submit: send the story to me at with a subject heading saying something along the lines of "Short Story by [your name here] to be Archived, please." Please no attachments, unless you really don't know how to copy/paste, because they tend to be huge in my mailbox.
