Simultaneous and previously published work is OK.
It's best to keep stories under 2500 words. Stories up to 5000 words are sometimes published though.

Cherry Bleeds History
Cherry Bleeds started its literary assault on June 13, 2000 . Weekly stories by Tony DuShane and Jim Bushneff were published during those opening months. Jim left August 2000 because of various outside obligations. Tony DuShane continues to edit and write for Cherry Bleeds. Robert Guskind came aboard in October 2000.
Along with the literary, there were three music releases from Ovum, Jonas Lindgren and Sult. Music releases may restart in the future, but there's no plan for upcoming releases at the moment.
Cherry Bleeds is based in San Francisco
