As a few of us write and submit short stories and flash fiction, I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread where we can all share when a story has been accepted for publication or longlisted/shortlisted in a competition.
In an environment where we have to deal with so many rejections I think it’s important to celebrate the “wins”.
I’ll start: one of my short stories, that a couple of people gave me feedback on the old Cloud has been accepted for publication and will be in the next issue of Barren Magazine.September 6, 2018 at 5:26 pm #605PinkbeltParticipant
Excellent stuff.September 6, 2018 at 5:43 pm #609JulesParticipant
That’s great, Elle. Well done 😀September 6, 2018 at 7:02 pm #615Philippa EastParticipant
Congrats again, Elle!
And congrats on all your other publications recently too xxxSeptember 6, 2018 at 7:29 pm #616
That’s great Elle. What’s the story? Haven’t come across Barren magazine, will look it up. Do let us know when the story is publishedSeptember 7, 2018 at 1:00 pm #686September 7, 2018 at 1:32 pm #693
Great, will watch out for itSeptember 8, 2018 at 12:30 am #758Lindsay BamfieldParticipant
Congratulations, Elle.September 8, 2018 at 10:21 am #780
Well done L. I keep seeing your work popping up at various magazines and websites – always good.September 8, 2018 at 10:59 am #786
Anyone else? Would be great to keep this going. In that spirit, I’ve had a bit of Vampire fic accepted by Occult Detective Quarterly, which will be in a future issue, as yet uncomfirmed, and a novelette in the anthology Hell’s Empire, which is expected around November.September 8, 2018 at 11:12 am #790HilaryParticipant
Okay then. I’ll join in! Lots of you already know, and have already congratulated me (thank you!) – a story wot I rote came third in this year’s Bath Short Story Award – publication in the anthology later this year, I believe.
Well done, Daeds and Elle. (And all you others who are slow in coming forward!!!)September 8, 2018 at 11:17 am #793KazGParticipant
Congratulations, Elle, Daeds and Hil 🙂
Er, I have a very little success story to share – my story from the last winter comp run by Ath was long listed for a (small) competition run by a bookstore down here..nothing compared to your successes but it will be in an antho, I believe. So that makes my happy 🙂September 8, 2018 at 11:24 am #799
Can I get a promise from everyone listing acceptances here that as soon as the stories are published they will post something to let us know? ThanksSeptember 8, 2018 at 12:43 pm #805
Congratulations Daedalus, Hilary and KazG!!
I agree any stories that get published, just post a link on here.September 8, 2018 at 1:11 pm #808JulesParticipant
I loved that story, Kaz. Well done. Please let us know when it’s out.
@daedalus is right – we should definitely jeep this going. And if forum members get sometjing published it would be great if they could return and post a link after publication.
I also have a story in the forthcoming Hell’s Empire anthology. (Watch out for the demonic sheep hee hee) 🙂September 8, 2018 at 2:00 pm #818
I’ve had a couple of pieces accepted recently, in EllipsesZine and Across the Margin. Reflex Fiction have also published two pieces.September 8, 2018 at 3:09 pm #820KnicksParticipant
Congrats to all of you posting your good news 😀September 8, 2018 at 10:48 pm #837Mad IguanaParticipant
In a bit of a theme here, I’ve also got a story coming up in Hell’s Empire. It’s not all Denizens in there, though, I swear. At least, I’m pretty sure it isn’t.September 8, 2018 at 10:54 pm #839WoolleybeansParticipant
It’s not just Denizens, but I also have a story in Hell’s Empire. Mine does not contain sheep.September 9, 2018 at 12:32 am #840
Before we go any further, does anyone here NOT have a story in Hell’s Empire? 😉September 9, 2018 at 12:33 am #841
And good stuff John, those are some really good zines. Are any of the pieces online?September 9, 2018 at 9:18 am #845RichardBParticipant
I don’t have a story in Hell’s Empire…September 10, 2018 at 1:21 pm #907September 11, 2018 at 10:47 am #982JanetteParticipant
… And now I’ve found this thread!
Firstly, many congratulations, Elle, Daeds, Hil, Kaz and Jules. I’ll look out for those links.
I think I’ve already said too many times already, but I have also come first AND second in the same local comp, Pennine Ink, with my two entries. Not stumbling upon this first, I opened a fresh link and posted the link there, but here it is again. https://pennine-ink.weebly.com/competition-results.html
Have I got it right now?September 12, 2018 at 12:08 am #1067September 12, 2018 at 12:42 pm #1119
Actually had a piece published today on Reflex Fiction if anybody wants to have a read, here’s the link:September 12, 2018 at 12:56 pm #1120
Nice one, well done Elle 🙂 Just off to have a readSeptember 12, 2018 at 3:35 pm #1129
