Long Shot Magazine is putting together another issue in 48 hours. After the composition and release of their first two issues, Long Shot—a collection of fiction, non-fiction, photography, poetry, and other art—is preparing for a third issue following a resolved conflict with NBC over their former name: 48 Hours.

They've reached double their goal on Kickstarter, and work on the issue will begin Friday, July 29. The first official issue used the offices of GOOD magazine in San Francisco for headquarters, and work on the second will be led from Gawker offices in Manhattan. Long Shot has received coverage in The Village Voice and New York Times, among others.

Official guidelines for submissions—along with the theme—will be announced on the 29th, and potential contributors can sign up to be notified here.

Winning a trademark litagation with CBS is a longshot.

Apparently, so is spelling "litigation".

As for the actual magazine, I'll be tossing my hat in the ring again. They didn't select my work last year, but it was fun to give it a shot.

I just checed, and, yep, the Eddie Murphy/Nick Nolte 48 Hrs. movie franchise that predates the news program is also owned by CBS.

What a coincidence!

Quite the contrary, you spelled it correctly.

I'm sorry to read this, your right of course, it is about "the fun".

You mean you're.

Came here to quote a random Eddie Murphy line from 48 hours [I was thinking along the lines of his "nigger with a badge / worst nightmare" speech in the redneck bar] but Sys Rq has stolen my thunder.

I am not mean sir.

Rule #4: Do not right a precise sentence on Metafilter.
So it was written, so shall it be done.

I have rarely seen a Mefi thread so derailed by typos.

Is correct spelling required for a submission to Longshot Mag? Or does being TOO perfect raise suspisions?

Art thrown together for the sake of speed you say?
An art magazine that was so uncreative that they infringed upon the name of a news magazine?

Now this MUST be something worth publishing.

I just tried to check out the results, and there are "No digital versions available" and their "preview" allows you to see the layout but not read anything. They want people to pay $12 for a print version when they haven't even had a chance to "thumb through" and see if there are any articles of interest, or if the writing seems to be high quality???

Parrot_person, you can see everything for free at two.longshotmag.com and then decide if you want the printed copy.
