Editor’s note

Many thanks to all the writers this month and to all the writers who made such a fine showing in the annual Wigleaf Top 50 and longlist, but especially thanks to Molly Miller, who had a story lined up and ready to go but asked us instead to invite you to donate to a good cause. We ask you again to consider doing that. Thank you.

 

Upcoming special issue

In February of last year we had a special issue called A Long Time Coming, featuring only writers of colour. It was one of our most popular issues ever, and several of the pieces featured went on to win awards and be nominated for awards.

Sometime soon we will be announcing the return of A Long Time Coming – another special issue featuring only writers of colour, but this time it’s even better – because this time we will be paying the writers! Obviously, we’re only a small magazine so you’re not going to get rich, but a token sum and something we are very happy to be able to give. For most of the time this is running we will halt regular submissions. Watch this space for further news…
