  I have just had my first rejection letter for a piece of fiction! Hurrah! It is not all bad news though – my short fiction for the Mslexia Into the Deep submission call made it into the top 60 pieces under consideration by the guest editor, so I am pleased that it made it that far.

Next submission call for Mslexia is on the theme of Departures and the deadline is 17th September 2010. See the Creative Writing Page for full details.
