After several posts in which I describe my stressful – and fruitless – search for an agent, it gives me great pleasure to celebrate a small success with you.
Last month I was lucky enough to have a short story published in 44 Square, the annual journal of new fiction, published by Birkbeck, University of London.
You can read my story, along with all the other included pieces, by downloading a PDF of the anthology. It’s free!
The journal features some excellent work from a bunch of talented writers, and I feel honoured that my short story, Letter to Oliver, was selected for publication. This is the second time I’ve had a short story selected for the 44 Square journal. Once was wonderful, but to be accepted twice represents a huge achievement for me.
(I also had some poetry accepted in another journal, but I’ll tell you all about that in another post.)
