Another short story acceptance this week - this time from Ireland's Own. This is another of the magazines which Writers' Forum highlighted last year; there was an interview with the editor, Sean Nolan, by Sue Moorcroft.
So, I was checking through the submission requirements the other day and realised that one of my family stories might just suit this magazine. I polished it up and emailed it to Sean. It was accepted within two days. Lovely man. Think I'm on a roll just now! Or I've finally put all my market talks and research to good use for my own work.
Sean Nolan is looking for stories of around 2000 words, written in a straightforward style - a good yarn. He does like an Irish orientation if possible, but like mine, many stories could be taking place anywhere. It needs to be sent in the body of the email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
