Campaigns to get fiction reinstated in as many magazines as possible are popping up all over the place. I've heard of another one tonight - recommending as many people as possible email Take A Break asking why there's been no coffee-break fiction in the weekly magazine recently. The email address to use is firstname.lastname@example.org Readers, writers, writers' mums - we should all send a message. Fight for your markets!
My understanding is that Take A Break has a new editor who is wanting to make her mark by changing the magazine.
Not so many years ago, Woman's Weekly got a new editor, and she also reduced the amount of fiction in the weekly magazine. There was an outcry, and the fiction was reinstated and then increased. I'm all for change, but it needs to be the right change, not change for change's sake.
So spread the word, email the mags, put messages on facebook, and ask everyone you know to do the same.
