Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend and didn't overdo the chocolate! For the first time ever, I enjoyed the eggs but still managed not to put on any weight. This is momentous for me, as I've been very gradually losing the pounds for the past six weeks or so (8-9lbs now, if you want to know!) and thought I'd scupper it at the weekend as I usually do at Easter. Just shows how much this healthy eating plan is working - not too quick a loss, a little regular exercise, and a little of what I like! Actually, it's the only way it will keep working for me as I also love my Saturday morning croissant.
Anyway, I digress. Some writers might find the following market and competition of interest.
The Fiction Desk
This is a UK company who produce anthologies of short stories. Submissions should be between 2000 and 7000 words. Full details of the company and their submissions are on the website.
Sunpenny Open Short Story Competition
The closing date has been extended to 30th April, so there's still time to enter this competition for a story of up to 4000 words - no offensive content allowed. They are also running a Christian short story comp and inspirational novel comp, both of which close on 30th April. Full details here.
