Hello from somewhere in between here and there


Hi, everyone,
I'm new to this forum and to the (insert your favourite adjective) world of queries. I'm not exactly new to the world of writing, though. I used to live in Madrid, Spain, where I attended some writing courses, but I never really tried to get anything published or tried to sign up for competitions. Now I live in Belgium, but I write in English. I have finished writing and editing a collection of short stories and I wanted to find someone who'd be interested in publishing it so that other people, beyond unsuspecting relatives and friends, can read it.
I missed the interaction with other writers, so I'm looking forward to participating in this forum.
Take care,

Hi Denis, and welcome to the forum!  I think you'll find it a collegial space.

From what I've heard (as a relative newbie myself), short story collections are a tough sell.  It's certainly true that fewer agents will consider them.  I'd be curious if stories previously published in well-regarded journals have a better shot (because prestige) or worse (because one audience has already seen them)... anyone else know?

In any case, I wish you all the best and hope you find good advice and companionship here, as I have.
