Dodging the Rain has to be the loveliest title I’ve come across for a literary journal. Visually as well, it’s a really beautiful online publication. And that’s why I submitted a very short flash fiction piece to them a few months ago which I hoped would be a good match.
I was very surprised to get an email yesterday saying they had accepted my piece and it would be going live imminently. It’s called ‘The First Cut’ if you fancy something to read that requires less time than it takes to boil a kettle. And while you’re relaxing with your hot beverage of choice, do check out all the wonderful short stories and poetry they feature.
If you’d like to submit something yourself, the guidelines are here. The next submission window for fiction is August 1-September 18, and they accept poetry submissions all year round.
Heartfelt thanks to editors Dana and Aine for offering a home to my little tale about a less than magical experience.
