Snippets

I heard on the grapevine that Woman's Weekly are urgently looking for stories of all lengths. They don't want issue-led - go for something quirky instead. Unusual structures work well for them.

Also, that same grapevine whispered in my ear that People's Friend need more longer stories - 4000 words. Here's a little insight into what kind of stories the Friend accepts.

Feeling blocked? How about a course in which you'll write a short story in a day? Taught by the fabulous Helen Walters. Here are the details.

Thank you. I like writing longer stories. If I can find time I'll maybe have a go. Do you think they might take a historical?

This is either going to be a very silly or very good question...

Anyway, is there anything to stop a male writer like myself from submitting to women's magazines? Is it a 'women's only' zone or are the boys allowed entry too?! :p

Best,
Shane.
