Thanks to Anne Rainbow for sharing the information about this publication opportunity.
SmokingPen Press are looking for short stories about pets to go into an anthology. There's a flat fee of $25 – and they'll accept previously published work.
Because we travel so much, garden birds are the closest we come to having pets. This one is called Gully. So is every other pigeon which looks vaguely similar.
Do you have any creatures you think of as yours, whether you own them or not?
