Northumberland writer Shelley Day Sclater’s short story The Winkles launched our new series of short stories in The Journal last week. This exciting new partnership will see a story appearing in the paper each Saturday, opening up a remarkable new platform for both short stories and writers from the region to showcase their work. The stories will also be published on the New Writing North website.
If you would like to send us a short story for consideration please do so. Stories must be no more than 2,000 words. We also ask that you send a short 50-word biography to accompany our piece. Please send submissions to Laura Brewis at laura@newwritingnorth.com. Selection of stories is a rolling process throughout the year so we will acknowledge your stories upon receipt and then contact you if your story is selected for publication.
