Not a story, but sent a poem off to a writing magazine few weeks back and got a response.

Hi Chloe

Thank you so much for sending your poem for the Workshop column. I’d very much like to use it in next July’s issue (published at the beginning of June.)


I’ll be working on your piece during February/March, so as there’s a little while before then, feel free to resubmit with any further revisions you wish to make, (eg. to clarify the scene a little, or work any adjustments to help the punctuation/sentence structuring.)


Please feel free to send in anything you’d like to add about the poem, such as parts that were easy or particularly difficult to write, any anxieties you had about the piece, even quirky bits about how you came to write it or where you were (eg. over breakfast/just after finishing ‘Hamlet’/during a long walk) - in fact anything you’d like to share.


I’m glad you liked ‘Intensive Care’. Liz had a very trying experience in hospital, and it coincided with a massive breakdown in the NHS computer systems. I think she was very brave to pen the poem!


Happy writing, and all good wishes


Alison
