Goodbye... a word that can convey so much in two syllables. Stymie has been publishing the words and thoughts and opinions of amazing writers since 2008 - we've been fortunate to include literary rock stars, emerging artists, new voices and all points in between in our digital pages. The magazine has seen itself featured in places like ESPN The Magazine, The Writer, The Classical and others. We published a trading card series. Stymie tried to break new ground or at least introduce people to the notion that literature and sports could intersect in a serious way. Readers - like you - have been generous in your time by reading our content and embracing our authors, and everyone who has had a hand in the magazine for the last six plus years sincerely thanks you for that. But now, as is true with all great things eventually, we come to an end.
Stymie is closed to submissions and wrapping up the process of publishing the last remaining acceptances we've been fortunate to secure - the site will stay live so that you can continue to access the amazing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry we've been graced to publish these last several years - but for now we are going dark if you will. Thank you to everyone - writer, reader, editor - who has had a hand in making Stymie awesome experience it has been for me and the team I've found myself surrounded with these last several years.
