  1. Are you only accepting subs from UK folks? Or is it open to outside writers?

  2. I tried to leave a comment the other day, but still don’t see it. I am not familiar with the term “Vanity” in relation to Fantasy literature. Can someone point me to an example of this, or explain? Thanks.

      It’s what the Japanese call ‘urban’ or ‘chick goth’, apparently. I was trying to be clever and on pulse and failed, unfortunately! It happens… Will edit the original post to avoid further confusion…


    • hi Phil, i also sent a message but not received a reply….i have an 11,000 word story, would an abridged version of it of 5,000 words be ok to send?

  3. LOL Oh thanks! That’s just new to me, I’ll have to look into it. Sounds intriguing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi guys, I sent a submission last week. Just want to know if it’s been received?

    • Phil Lunt // 01/09/2016 at 10:58 //

      Fairly certain we did but I’ll double check…

      – Phil

    What are the rules and conditions for the rights to the material? Who owns it after submission/publishing?

    Does this have to be an unpublished work?
