You say you want to create
But you can’t make up your mind
Let me steer you
Into a new/old place
Stats never meant to cause you any sorrow
But they cause you plenty pain
I’m only trying to help you
Help you branch out, find a new way
Writers linked arms in publishing games
Into the world of a living wage
Living wage, living wage
Living wage, living wage
Make some gain, and profit too

Check out Apex Magazine to get your stories out there. Look at The Arkansas International for your stories and poetry. Have your stories broadcasted on Night Shift Radio: The Storyteller Series. Submit your fiction, poetry, essays, and book reviews to The Georgia Review.

Everything Shortform’s winner for the 5th round of the Short Words Sentence Contest did so in spectacular style! Yasmin McNeill dazzled us with a play on the words and gained the most replies (4) and most claps (70) for her creativity. Her sentence, “Looks like a reddal from my angle.” was a stunner. She sent us searching the internet to define a reddal until we tripped over ourselves and realized the mirror image of the word. (Think about it if you haven’t got it yet)

Crypto is cranking up to levels unseen before but one cryptocurrency is making astounding leaps and bounds and it’s not Bitcoin! I’m a fan of Binance, a cryptocurrency exchange.
