I submitted my old post ‘Socks’ to Longshot Island, and I am pleased to be able to tell you that it is now in ‘New Directions’, the fifth edition of their printed magazine. Here is a link to Blurb, where you can buy the magazine, if you wish. http://www.blurb.com/b/8209518-longshot-island
Hilariously, it is credited under ‘Fashion’! 🙂 We both got the joke.
You will notice that ‘New Directions’ features art by my blogging friend, Jane Lee McCracken. More of her captivating work can be found here. https://janeleemccracken.co.uk/
If you have ever thought about creating your own book or magazine, you can get a discount from Blurb via this link. https://share.blurb.com/x/5r7gWq

And if you would like to read the original version of ‘Socks’ on my blog, here is a link to that.
Longshot Island offers a genuine opportunity for writers to get short stories, non-fiction articles, poems and other work published online, and sometimes in print too. It has no fees, and pays nothing for the work. However, you do get five free copies of the magazine to keep. Additionally, they offer very cheap classified advertising, where you can promote your latest book, service, or blog. Daniel is a very approachable man, and even if you are not successful the first time, you will get great feedback about anything you submit.
I recommend that you give it a try.
