Lady Glamis just wrote a great series on short story writing. It includes a useful list of markets to submit to, loads of good advice, and also a short story contest. So if you have a story to submit, do send it in for the contest – prize is $50 plus a full critique and publication on the blog. If not, have a read of the series anyway. I want to start writing and submitting more short stories, so it was timely for me.
