That's Life and Fast Fiction (Australia) submission guidelines
The fiction editor is Jude Durant. All submissions should be sent to her by email Fastfiction (at) pacificmags (dot) com.au
Stories must not have been previously published anywhere.
One page stories, of no more than 600 words are wanted for the weekly magazine. A few of this length are also used in the quarterly magazine, along with some of around 1,600 words, but most will be in the 900 to 1,100 range.
Jude tells me that dialogue driven stories are preferred. They should appeal to women over 35.
A wide range of genres are considered including thrillers, revenge, sixth sense or spooky stories, romance and feelgood stories. Quirky or amusing 'light bite' stories are welcome, as are heartwarmers and those including animals or children.
Previous guidelines requested that the title, genre and word count be included in the email header and I still do this in case it's useful.
See this post for what happens after your story is submitted.
