    Where to publish short stories that are controversial

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by northernpsyche, Oct 5, 2012.

    Hi , i am new to writing and have want to write some flash and short stories. Typically these would be gritty northern realism?, violent frequently with dark humour, think Irvine Welch. I have know idea where to send these type of stories either for competitions, critique or publishing. I don't even know what genre they would be described as?

    If anyone has any answers or can point me in the right direction i would be much obliged.

    Kind regards

    Nothing stopping you from rewiewing other peopleƬs short stories and passing your comment - you can learn a lot from reading other member's work. I know I do.

    I guess you got the 'rules' memo when you joined so after you have adhered to that you can put up your work in a workshop to be reviewed by members of this community.
