Yay! I’m on the longlist of the Strands International Short Story Contest. The theme for this competitin was Fire. One of the four elements strands of an anthology due in late 2017. Looking forward to the next theme, and writing for that.
Feel free to check out this beautiful magazine. http://strandspublishers.weebly.com/
I was not on the shortlist but the story will be published in the anthology, I believe.
The theme for the next contest is Water, and I am developing an idea. As you gather, four contests this year each with an element theme. We have fire, now water. Great fun and great stories written.
