View Full Version : New Guidlines.

Just to make life interesting, 'that's life' has changed its guidelines. I got a note from my editor today:

'that's life fiction has changed. as from now as well as being a twist in the
tail it must also be sexy. all stories should contain at least one pretty
intense sex scene. the word count is 700 and payment remains the same.'

(Payment is 400 a story, which I think is roughly $600.)

P.S. The address of the magazine is up on the 'Short Story' thread, under 'Writing for the UK market.'

Is it too, too crude to suggest that at 700 words, the pretty intense sex scene and the twist in the tail might have to be one and the same?


Maryn, who's like that sometimes
