If you have anything outstanding with TWN you've probably already had the email, but in case anyone didn't know ... any stories sent between June last year and April this year will not be used and you may submit elsewhere. For stories sent since April this year, they'll be accepted within 12 weeks, if at all. After this period we're to assume a rejetion and may submit elsewhere.
I'm glad to have this cleared up (I expect Jill the fiction editor is too). If there's anything worse than having a story rejected it's not having a reply at all. Jill works alone on a part time basis. Those magazines which send replies and give reasons generally have a team of staff in the fiction department.
Just a reminder about the Alfie Dog short story competition. (There is an entry fee of around £2 in the form of five story downloads. Can I suggest you try one by that Patsy Collins woman?) The prize is £200 plus (optional) publication of your short story collection on which you'll earn royalties.
Right, I'm off to water the allotment whilst it's still cool.
