LSS, a writer's ezine, published its first story in July of 2003 under the editorial eyes of Denise Cassino, Linda Barnett-Johnson and Amy Pacini. Their goal was simple: to create an ezine that would publish the best fiction and poetry from both emerging and established writers. But time changes all things, and while Amy remains at LSS as Poetry Editor, February 2015 saw the prose torch passed to new editors Anisa Claire and Kim Bussey.

The goal of LSS to publish entertaining stories and poetry remains the same. But while we’re currently still a non-paying ezine, one of our long-term goals is to find the funds to pay our contributors. We will also be including non-fiction articles and tips on a broad range of subjects: developing story ideas, editing, formatting ebooks, building an author’s platform, marketing, interviews with successful authors and many other topics.

We wish Denise and Linda much success with their new endeavors and hope you all continue to enjoy reading LSS.
