Where did the first two months of the year disappear? I wouldn’t know – I ‘m still looking for them!
One of my major highlights in February was the acceptance of my microfiction piece ‘All Grease No Shine’ in the latest edition of the Bath Flash Fiction Award anthology! After multiple attempts, I finally made it to the longlist! Though it went no further, I was thrilled with this recognition! I consider it my first step towards the shortlist and perhaps one day even winning the whole thing!!
As I had mentioned in my earlier posts, I will be focusing mainly on the Resources posts for this year. There’s hordes of submission calls which you can start sending your work to right away!

I received a kind rejection from Baltimore Review, which also provided a long list of submission avenues:
