- Categories include romance, thriller, light bite, sixth sense, heartwarmer, revenge and tear jerker.
- Stories vary from 700 words (1 page) to 2800 words (4 pages)
- Stories need to be credible. Check everything actually works in your story.
- Setting should usually be Australia unless there's a real need for the setting to be elsewhere eg a Scottish castle
- Male viewpoint stories are welcome
- Send seasonal stories six months in advance (and remember Aussie seasons are opposite to those in the UK!)
- You can submit by email, and should receive an auto-response acknowledging your submission
- Stories previously published elsewhere in the world (not Australia or New Zealand) are welcome, but Anthony will buy second rights for these, so you will earn less. (Beware, the UK Woman's Weekly is on sale in Australia.)
- Anthony keeps a stock of shortlisted stories to fill gaps. But if you haven't had a response after six months assume your story is rejected. You are welcome to resubmit if you think the story is particularly good.
