Thank you again to all the writers who have submitted writing to us. We are on the verge of letting everyone know which short stories have been selected for Platform on this occassion. The standard was incredibly high and the decisions very difficult to make; we've spent hours reading and in discussion but we have finally made our decisions. We will be letting both successful and unsuccessful writers know by email within the next few days. After that the first of our work will be uploaded to the website. We will send out all our members notification once the stories are online!
We're also receiving lots of flash fiction and poetry and with a week to go before the submission window ends we know that again the decisions are going to be very difficult to make! If you haven't yet sent us in your flash and poetry then we look forward to receiving it before 31st July!
Hope everyone in the UK is coping with the mini heat wave! Things are certainly hotting up here at Platform!
Thanks to all our short story contributors! We've received some top short stories and are currently making decisions about which to include in our first online showcase. We'll be letting our writers know at the earliest opportunity.
And as we wade through our short story subs we're also starting to get some great flash fiction and poetry submissions too! We're accepting flash and poetry until 31st July so if you have material that hasn't yet been published and you'd like the chance to see it in our first showcase then send it in to us. Submission guidelines are on the writing page.
