Workhouse workings

First the good news from the last ten days:

A, lucky thing, landed a top London agent this week for her novel.

B, C and D have work in Southword , edited by Nuala Ni Chonchuir.

E has been asked by a new press to turn a series of published shorts into a chapbook for the press.

F has a story in the Tales of the Decongested Anthology II, due out later this year.

G is a finalist with a novella in the International Long Short Story Competition

H has a couple of prose poems accepted at Shadowtrain

I is one of the winners of the Decibel/Penguin competition, and wins a place in the Anthology, out from Penguin later this year.

J has a story accepted for the Route Born in the 1980s Anthology

K has a poem forthcoming at GUD

L has a flash accepted at Microhorror

M has two pieces accepted at Ranfurly Review

N a piece accepted at Prick Of The Spindle

O wins student choice award at Whidbey Writers Workshop.

Now the bad news:

The Workhouse has lost its wonderful Techie Guy, Rob, who has done fantastic stuff for the last eighteen months. Looking for techie support fast!

Oh no! It won't be the same without Rob. Hope he's okay?

Vanessa Gebbie said...

I'm sure he's fine!

Wow, all this in ten days! Amazing, congrats to all. And how wonderful that all their names are in alphabetical order ;). Sorry to hear about Rob leaving, I am sure you will manage, make sure he gives you his TechGod secrets before he goes!
