The deadline for Bodies has now passed. I’m afraid we won’t be reading anything received after midnight on the 28th Feb (GMT). Delighted to see we have more submissions than ever before, so we’ll be getting back to you with a short list and some judges shortly. We are also very chuffed that have received the name of the winner for the Money issue, and will be collating the feedback and stories for publication on the site this coming weekend.
In the meantime we are still accepting for Escape, and can announce our next theme: Faith.
What do you have faith in? God/Allah, your parents, a political system, the love of your partner or friends, or maybe nothing at all? Faith is a fundamental part of why we do what we do and almost every action we make demands that we have faith in something; you wouldn’t sit down if you didn’t have faith that there was a chair there, and faith that it would support your weight. Unless you are a professional clown, or sitting on the floor, I suppose… But hopefully you get the point. We are looking for stories that examine belief in something, as well as the positive and negative consequences that might arise from that belief. You have until the end of June to get in your stories of up to 3,500 words.
As always, please make sure you pay attention to the submission guidelines here.
