Secrets and Silent Times

Secrets and Silent Times

Just a quick post to say I’ve been busy editing The Slingink Prize/The Slingink Junior Prize Anthology 2010 – Secrets and Silent Times. The cover was designed by Russel Herneman who also has a story in the anthology.

Contributor’s copies were sent out yesterday after 20 mins of weighing and labelling packages (felt sorry for the lady in the post office and the people building up in the queue behind me) and I won’t say how long taping them up the night before.

If you are looking for a Christmas present for an avid reader Secrets and Silent Times can be purchased from Slingink’s Lulu Spotlight Storefront along with our other publications (speaking of which I have to get to work on Vol 2 of the magazine).

Whittaker Round 5-7 and Slingink

Well, what can I say. Started a story for Round 5 of Whittaker and didn’t finish it. Wrote a poem that I quite liked and it got disqualified because it was over the line limit (doh – hint double check the rules, people!).

But for Round 6 I managed both a story and a poem – last minute as usual so fully expecting to do fantastically well!!

Now we are on round 7 (of 9) and I have decided that I will use the picture prompt for both rounds – you can see the picture that will inspire me here. Freaky, huh. Let’s hope I can do it justice.

Been busy on Slingink processing new registrations to the site and entries to our competitions – Slingink Shorts (now closed) and The Slingink Prize (closes July 31st).

Also hoping to start receiving submissions to the e-zine I’m hoping to launch on my birthday in August so please check out the Submission Guidelines.
