From the Editors
With spring around the corner (or at least the Vernal Equinox), we should be seeing the last of the winter weather this month (and in general the last of our winter-themed stories too).
You may have noticed that we try to publish lighter stories on Mondays, to brighten up the hardest day of the week with a bit of humour. On Twitter, we’ve started using the hashtag #humourformonday — and that doesn’t have to be just for EDF. On Mondays, why not use the hashtag to share links to stories that will give everyone a laugh and a boost for the day? (As a side note, we’re using the international spelling, humour with a “u”, since we’re based in Canada and have readers all over the world.)
We have a few familiar names on our list of stories this month, as usual, but overall we’re welcoming lots of new voices to Every Day Fiction.
Leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, we have “Patrick’s Passage” by Maribel C. Pagan on March 16th, then we’ll be featuring “A St. Patrick’s Day Story” by Wayne Scheer on March 17th.
We are now taking stories intended for holidays and occasions in April, including April Fool’s Day, Passover, Easter, and more — submit them here (please remember that this submission queue is only for April-specific stories, and other submissions should be entered here instead). The deadline for April stories is March 27th.
Please note that authors who attempt to hack the star rating system to push their stories up the top ten lists will invariably be caught, and the extra hassle of having to remove those cheaters’ ratings (obviously) makes us unhappy and extremely prejudiced against working with those individuals again.
On a happier note, let’s move on to the stories we have for you this month…
