End of Times Party
We are a new comical satirical website looking for writers to contribute and showcase. Our subject matter pertains to the end of times and particularly to 2012. We have three criteria for our writer, funny, satirical and witty. We also will take serious ongoing stories. Our site is endoftimesparty.com and we will help any writers publish and distribute their works. In addition we are looking for poets, songwriters, artist, cartoonist, comic book writers, graphic artist, bands and entrepreneurs who want to make money from their products or works. they will be able to post their work and if we like what we see we will support and possibly fund their endeavors.
