Hullo readers - These two Australian publishing opportunities look excellent for writers of short stories.
Affirm Press is planning six collections of short stories by single authors in 2010.
They are calling for submissions of between 40,000 and 70,000 words (short stories, flash fiction, novellas etc). At least half must be previously unpublished. Standard royalities apply. Closing Date 1 February 2010.
For more details visit: http://affirmpress.com.au/ and click on Long Stories Shorts on their home page.
Pick a Pocket Book publishes small books, each containing two short stories. You need to join to submit, but they pay well.
