Lotta leaving Allas

Lotta Gustavsson ends her role as fiction editor at Allas today. I'm sure some of those who've submitted stories to her would like to join me in wishing her well for the future.

I'm contacting the ladies who are taking over from her, to ask if there are any changes to the submission process or fiction requirements, and will update you if there's any news.

Thanks, Patsy, that would be good to know. And absolutely wishing Lotta well for the future.

Yes, please, Patsy. I did submit to them about a year ago but never heard anything so have moved the story on elsewhere.

Thanks, Patsy. I've also submitted once to them and heard nothing but after your useful post a couple of weeks back I hope to try again.

I've had a few stories published with Allas, albeit a few years ago now, but remember communicating with Lotta. Good luck to her in her future endeavours.

I'd love to know more about submitting to Allas and other Scandanavian magazines, so please go ahead, Patsy. With the UK market shrinking, this will be particularly useful.

Thanks, Patsy. I've just heard from Lotta, too. I've wished her well. Allas has published a few of mine. Like others who have been published in the mag I was absolutely delighted with the illustrations. Look forward to working with the new editors, so looking forward any news you can share from them. Thanks. Good wishes. Kate Hogan

I've had a dozen or so stories published in Allas and have been contacted by Lotta. Good wishes to her!

Yes, I'd love to know if there are any new guidelines for the publication. Janice Sadler

Thanks for your comments everyone.

I'll do my best to pass on your good wishes to Lotta, and to persuade her replacements to provide us with the current guidelines.
