I’ve got so many things on the go, including a novella. Australian and NZ writers can submit their novella ms by 2 December this year to Seizure and be one of 4 winners. If nothing else, the writer submission page answers what a novella is (well for their purposes): ‘a slim 20 – 50,000 words.
The only thing that’s not yay about this is somewhere on their website where they talk about young writers and editors trying to get established. They could use the ubiquitous and more ambiguous/less-specific term ’emerging’ and then it would be 100% yay. When I see funky website + that kind of text to me it = ‘not gonna really dig you or your stuff if you’re over 30.’
Maybe I’m being presumptuous.
