Fish Publications - Competitions Open For Submissions

Hi All,

I received the newsletter from Fish publications including the news that their competitions are open for submissions.
These do cost some euros (minimum 14) to enter but the prizes are relatively substantial and the closing dates are some months away.

This year they are running:

 a short story comp (closes November 2012, max word count 5000)
a flash fiction comp (closes February 2013, max word count 300)
a poetry comp (closes March 2013, max word 300)
a short memoir comp (closes January 2013, max word 4000)

All details are here on their website.


Best of luck if you choose to enter!

Meeting on 20th September 2012 - Cancelled

Hi All,

Due to holidays, sickness, work commitments, zombie plagues and the like there will be no meeting this Thursday.

We hope to back to normal for the 27th September so please watch this space for an update on that meeting,

Apologies if you also experienced a recent outage to this website - the culprit has been punished and it won't happen again.

Enjoy the extra writing time!

HarperCollins ask for submissions - and you don't need an agent!

Hi All ,

In case you missed it and have a completed manscript but no agent yet. Harper Voyager (the sci-fi part of HarperCollins) will have a window for accepting submissions during October.

More details are on the site here so it could well be worth dusting off any completed manuscripts you have out there. 

Must be speculative fiction and of course follow the submission guidelines.

If you do submit - best of luck!
