Candis News.

Had a rejection from Candis today, which is never nice.  It was only after I'd posted it out I saw the news that they no longer accept fiction.  There is a book club page where we are invited to submit a short story, word count 800 wds.  Also authour tips which are always helpful. 

We get a chance to comment on other submissions.  Might give it a go.  It's not the same as having a story in the magazine and getting paid for it, but always worth having somewhere to send stories to.


  1. Commiserations on the rejection. I had rejections from The Weekly News and The Oldie today.
    Thanks for highlighting the Candis short story web page - I might send my rejected Weekly News story there. It fits the word count.

  2. Bad luck with the rejection - as you say, they're never nice.

  3. Rejections, rejections...why do we put ourselves through it? Commiserations, Suzy.

  4. Sorry to hear that, Suzy - I got a nice rejection from The Weekly News! Do you ever try Writers' Forum - they have a good monthly story competition with great prize money. And Writing Magazine/Writers' News have themes for their monthly competitions.
