... but we've lost another market.
From Gill Hook at Candis magazine:
"Due to exciting developments for the magazine, although we will still carry short stories, we will no longer be accepting unsolicited submissions.
Instead we will be commissioning short stories from established authors and from a shortlist of our most popular writers."
With thanks to Patsy for passing this on.
I can't say it sounds like an exciting development for the magazine to me. Last time I heard of a magazine changing to take commissioned stories from famous authors only, it was not long before they dropped the fiction slot altogether.
All together now, BOOOOOOO!
