TOASTED CHEESE (http://www. toasted-cheese. com (http://www. toasted-cheese. com)) is a well-regarded literary magazine launched in 2001, by writers and for writers. Relying on creative collaboration, a solid sense of humor and, most importantly, good writing, the magazine hosts chats and contests in addition to publishing quarterly issues.
ÂI so rarely enter contests,Â Ellington admits. ÂBut I like the quality of the publication. The tone and style are unique and it doesnÂt fall into clichÃ©. I came across the information for the Midsummer Tale Contest literally while I held a draft of ÂDog DrivingÂ in my hand, wondering what to do with it, because itÂs a bit on the quirky side and doesnÂt fit genre labels. ÂDog DrivingÂ is one of my favorite pieces, because it reflects a particularly happy -- if slightly odd Â summer of my life, and I hoped it would be a good fit. IÂm delighted they thought so, too!Â
