Slingink and Writing Submissions

Slingink and Writing Submissions

ulpG or even Gulp

I have just submitted 5 poems and 2 short short stories to 3 different publishers (no duplicate submissions though – that’s just the total).

Will let you know about acceptances or rejections. And I may send out some more.

Decided to end 2010 as I want to go into 2011. Productive.

Have signed up to THE STIRRED POeT 2011 starting Jan on The Write Idea to help with this – a six round poetry competition.

This comes hot on the heels of Slingink Scribbling Slam

- a six round poetry and/or fiction compeition that I ran over on Slingink with masses of help, for which I am very grateful, from the two judges, for poetry Mandy Pannett and for fiction Nik Perring. Obviously I didn’t officially enter but I submited my poems (I managed 6 new ones) and stories (I managed 4 new ones and submitted 2 I’d previously written) anonymously for comments. I was so chuffed that I would have won one poetry round and come second in one fiction round so those are a couple of the pieces I have sent out today.

I’m sorry to say that due to a manic end of work (which I am now not at for two weeks over Christmas) I’m behind with editing the second edition of Slingink All Shorts though I am determined to get it finished (ideally before Christmas, definitely before the end of December).

Who else is on a mad submission rush at the end of 2010?

Good luck

In January I am going to look at my NaNoWriMo novel again. I’m already thinking of writing a sequel for NaNoWriMo 2011.

I don’t think I mentioned that I have submitted a few stories to a charity anthology (Write to Fight) to support a fellow writer’s karate club. This should be out shortly so I’ll add a link to it when its available.

Now Available

All visitors to the blog can read my found poetry – please do have a go yourselves – it’s poetry made easy and you get to doodle at the same time.

Subscribers can read my short story Comeralot – an Arthurian spoof that won Slingink’s Inspirations competition in Spring 2005.
