MYRIAD

MYRIAD Digital Zines / A Hexagon SF Magazine companion series.

Introducing MYRIAD, a series of guest-edited subscriber-exclusive flash fiction zines.

MYRIAD is a new project designed to give experience to emerging editors. Each zine will feature five or more flash fiction pieces selected to fit a theme chosen by the editor.

This is not a paid publication at this time. Contributors will receive a digital PDF copy of the completed zine.

We are excited to announce that our first zine will be edited by Kevin Casin, working title “Boundaries.”
