The new issue of Writers' News (June 2010) contains a piece about Candis. The family magazine is now accepting unpublished short stories of between 2,300 and 2,500 words. They particularly want stories with clever storylines that keep the reader guessing, twist in the tail, and tightly written whodunnits.
However, there is still room for stories about modern love, families and friendship. No children's, sci-fi, or stories from an animal or ghost viewpoint.
It is a competitive market which uses only 12 stories a year. Payment is £300. Email as an attachment, or in the body of the email to: firstname.lastname@example.org Full submission details are on the Candis website and can be printed off.
