An amazing achievement, and in the end,it is successful thanks to the quality of their advice, their stories, their poems. It just seems to get on with things, quietly, doing what it says on the tin very well, and has been a great resource for thousands of writers over the years. And, lovely people- this special issue contains a write-up of Short Circuit!
I'm delighted to be judging their current competition - the short story section. I will be getting a large parcel delivered mid-February - with mases of super stories selected for the shortlist by TNY's team of readers. I know it will be a very hard job selecting the winning few, but as usual, I will do my very best.

I was called a frighteningly powerful woman this week, and I hadn't laughed so much for ages. Made me think of an old advert for bath cleaning powder...
Seriously, peeps, no-one is less powerful than me. But I can be frightening - ask my sons...!
