Fiction Market: The Fiction Desk

Trying to organise my files, photos and information a little better before January is over, so I can update and find everything more quickly. My aim is to start sharing writing markets information again on a regular basis, which I used to do when I started this blog.

So to begin with, The Fiction Desk looks an interesting possibility for anyone writing short stories. They seem to publish ongoing anthologies, and stories of between 2,000 and 11,000 words should be submitted through their online submissions form. They do pay between £20 and £30 and run a Writer's Award.

They are running a Flash Fiction competition at the moment. Stories should be between 250 and 1,250 words. Entry fee is £3 and closing date is 31 January 2013. Full details of the competition and general submissions are on their website.

Good luck!
Rosemary

Scarily there are so many outlets now, a good scary though - and it's great to have an overview like this Rosemary. May a go at the flash competition.
