Open for Submissions!

Two more weeks to go until the deadline for this very special issue! Just a few pointers if you are considering entering:

1. Please, please, please make sure you are familiar with the magazine so you have a damn good idea of what we are looking for and what we like. It’s a waste of everyone’s time if you have no clue.

2. Be original & imaginative – keep us guessing!

3. Please ensure your story ends with a bang not a fizzle…

4. Check your spelling & grammar before you send.

5. Address the editor by name. When submitting it’s the polite thing to do.

6. Read the guidelines.

If you have done all of the above, you may submit!
