Well hello there!
Yes, the giant has awoken. Thanks for all your well-wishings. We’re happy to report that the houses have been moved, the exams have been written, the marriage has been made, and the baby has been born – so we’d better get on with things really, hadn’t we?
There are three important things you should know first. We’ve been having a bit of a think about the heart of this magazine, what it does best and why it’s here, and have made the following decisions:
ONE: We have closed the poetry section. Sorry. Big thanks to the great poets who have sent things in over the years. You can still re-read the past poetry here, and we wish you a hearty God Speed in placing your poems in other magazines. This means that TPG is now wide open for flash fiction and non-fiction.
TWO: Your stories, real or imagined, must now be set in the UK. You don’t have to explicitly state this, obviously (please don’t laboriously insert place names), but we would like to see stories from the UK, for the UK, about the UK.
THREE: We’ll be aiming to post a new piece of work each Monday and Thursday.
We do hope that is satisfactory. Have a look at the updated submission guidelines for more info. Now, we have an entirely empty inbox, so, writers of Britain, if you’d like to tell us a story, please,
