Description: non-fiction, fiction, and art that is politically aware, not polemic

Editor(s): Mike Wendling, the errorist

Needs: The Errorist will be found at www.the-errorist.com starting in mid-September. Each month, we’ll publish about 10 pieces of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, lyrics and artwork. Our motto: Dedicated to the spread of lies, half-truths, and weapons of mass disinformation._x000D_

_x000D_ We are open-minded in regards to genre and content. Our basic guidelines are this: politically aware, not polemic. Although the editors live in London, we’re internationally minded (as befits the w.w.w.)_x000D_

_x000D_ There won’t be annoying pop-up or banner ads on the site, and the overall feel will be simpler and more linear than most sites – we hope that this will focus attention on the content and make it more like a ‘zine or magazine – albeit one you read on your computer screen. _x000D_

_x000D_ The ever-important issue of “compensation”: We believe in giving writers and artists something for their effort and output; unfortunately this principal has been somewhat eroded by certain perceptions of electronic media. Unfortunately to start with, we don’t have a budget. To get around this we’re offering “alternative payment” whenever possible. We’ll send you a book or a CD, or if you live in or visit the Greater London area, we might all meet at a pub to talk things over and have some face time, with the drinks on us. _x000D_

_x000D_ If we’re ever in a position to share any sort of accumulated wealth, we will; we’re doing this for love, not money. _x000D_

_x000D_ What we can promise, other than a token reward, is a piece of that elusive currency that is credit for work done (notice that a lot of websites unfortunately stop at that), a fair evaluation of your art and craft, and for writers at least, careful and thoughtful editing, along with consultation, if need be, during the editing process._x000D_

_x000D_ Proposals are nice, but it’s usually best to see the finished piece, so please send to mikewendling@hotmail.com; if you’re an artist or photographer please give us a bit of warning before sending large attachments. Deadline for the first issue is 30 August; subsequent deadlines are the last day of each month
