the speakeasy has moved to

We’ve moved our little dive bar back to our sister site with the rest of the yeah write challenges. We’re still the best saloon on the web for fiction and poetry, we just have a new home and a few changes in the the way things work around here.

Our new home page is

Need to subscribe to the weekly mailer? If you were a subscriber to the speakeasy, that subscription will no longer lead you to yeah write, so you’ll have to click here if you want to know when the fiction|poetry challenge at yeah write is opening each week.

Besides our new address, we have a new word count limit: 500 words plus 100 words grace. Instead of a sentence and media prompt, we will share an optional prompt with the other challenges. Moderation will continue, and we’ll still open on Tuesday for submissions and vote on Thursday along with the nonfiction and microstories challenges.

Have you met our new co-editors?
