    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.

    Well done L. I keep seeing your work popping up at various magazines and websites – always good.

    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.

    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!!!)

    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 🙂

    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? Thanks

    Congratulations Daedalus, Hilary and KazG!!

    I agree any stories that get published, just post a link on here.

    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) 🙂

    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.

    It’s not just Denizens, but I also have a story in Hell’s Empire. Mine does not contain sheep.

    Before we go any further, does anyone here NOT have a story in Hell’s Empire? 😉

    And good stuff John, those are some really good zines. Are any of the pieces online?

    Hi Daeds,
    Yes, if you look under fiction at acrossthemargin.com and at https://www.ellipsiszine.com you should find them. A couple of super stories from @elle also.

    … 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?

    Read some of those stories, @johnalty – superb stuff, all with a strong, distinct voice. Even a couple of twists. Looking forward to finding @elle‘s stuff too
