Welcome to July’s Long Story Short!

Welcome to July’s Long Story Short!

We have four new announcements to make this month!

  1.  A Long Story Short has been accepted by the Magazine Association of British Columbia!  We are excited and pleased with this accomplishment, to say the least.  To learn more about it, click HERE.

  2.  PAID PUBLICATION OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL – The Weekly Writing Challenge on Writer’s Carnival is offering paid publication as the prize for Challenge #65. Anyone can enter, but you do need to create an account on Writer’s Carnival if you don’t have one already so that you can post your entry as a comment.  For full details, click HERE.

  3.  Last but not least, we are now offering Keychains for Writers! There is an LSS keychain as well as various genre keychains such as Scifi, Fantasy, Horror, Romance and Mystery. To check out these fun keychains, click HERE.

  4.  Reader’s Carnival has joined the family and now shares the site with A Long Story Short!  This means increased traffic and readers for published works and more stories and content for subscribers to browse through.  If you have any questions about Reader’s Carnival, don’t hesitate to shoot us a message.

As you know, Long Story Short now accepts stories up to two thousand words long. We’re still big fans of flash, and those will stand the best change of acceptance, but if you have a wonderful story and need the extra thousand words to tell it, we’ll be happy to read it with an eye toward publishing.

LSS is in print! The magazines are full colour, 8.5 x 11, and showcase the same covers you see on the site. If you’d like to purchase a copy of this month’s magazine, you can do so by clicking HERE.  Funds from sales will go toward our eventual goal of making Long Story Short a paying market for writers.  All support is greatly appreciated.

We’ve also taken our FIRST STEP towards becoming a PAYING MARKET for writers.  Full details can be found in the compensation section of the Submissions Page.

Finally, we have started a FaceBook and Twitter page for A Long Story Short, so those of you who are contributors may start seeing posts mentioning your stories. Be sure to ‘like’ our page so you don’t miss any of our FaceBook announcements.
