We've received a lot in the first two weeks, but I'm determined to keep ahead of the 'you'll hear in six weeks' promise. Responses should start going out soon.
Keep them coming, but also - don't worrying about rushing stuff to me. We're not closing submissions at any point in the foreseeable future. If ever.
The details are (and will remain) here.
I've initiated a round-table sort of thing with a few other editors from small publishers that take unagented shorts. We'll be sharing some advice on submitting fiction, which may be generally useful - especially to those just getting started as writers. Plus, it'll show off some of the UK's rather amazing small press scene.
That said, my own perspective is increasingly similar to that of Ellery Sedgwick, the editor of The Atlantic... in 1921. She said: "My selection is made according to the whim of one individual." Which is empowering, terrifying, and a very good reason that no one should take it to heart.
