Scavenger's Newsletter cover

Scavenger's Newsletter

Subject: For Writers
Category: Magazine
Country of Origin: USA

Scavenger's Newsletter was a monthly marketletter for the SF, fantasy, horror or mystery writer/artist with an interest in the small press. On a regular schedule, it provided timely coverage of market news and presents mini articles, flash fiction, commentary, poetry and art. Six-monthly updates were provided by Scavenger's Scrapbook.

Although it ceased publishing in January 2003 after 19 years, the articles in each issue about all aspects of writing, illustrating and publishing SF, fantasy and horror continue to be a valuable and topical resource for anyone interested in getting involved with the small press.
