The Fenland Reed

Thanks to Susan Jones for telling me about The Fenland Reed, who are open to submissions of short stories and poetry, as well as photographs. (I'm unsure what, if anything, they pay.)

I've not been to the Fens, so here are some more pictures from my current trip.

A tough life ...

Sorry the blog is a bit quiet at the moment. That's partly because there isn't much womag news, but mostly because I'm in the Outer Hebrides, working on the edits for my novel Leave Nothing But Footprints. OK, I have taken *some* time off to sightsee, but I have been working too – honest.

My short story collection, Up The Garden Path, is currently free as the final part of Alfie Dog Fiction's fifth birthday celebrations. This offer runs 12th to 16th of July.

Get it here.

If you download and enjoy it, I'd really appreciate it if you left a review on Amazon.

ISSNs for ALCS

I've found this link, which shows you how to obtain the ISSN for any magazine. As I'm currently travelling, that's the best I can do for now – but actually it's probably better than a list, which I might misstype and which will undoubtedly soon become out of date.

Many, but not all, magazines also give the ISSN on the first or large page along with things such as their registered address and copyright information. (You'll need to look at a copy to check the title your story was published under.)

If you're wondering what an ISSN is, or why you'd need one, take a look at these posts.

As I don't have a womag with me to illustrate this pst, I'm using a few pictures from our trip. If you'd like to see more, take a look at my other blog, or on Facebook.
