Writing short fiction is *not* well-paid. Story competitions are the best way to promote and celebrate good fiction work, but they cost £££.
I'm an independent academic covering the Victorians & all things neo-Victorian 👩🏫, a writer of short fiction and poetry, and a consultant & coach at Moved Consulting. Support me here to support my short stories (Neo-Victorian and not) and my lectures and articles on Victorian literature and culture.
Short fiction that isn't journal-published is published via my Substack newsletter (https://graciado.substack.com). Stories that are available via online journals for free are also published there for anyone to read once rights permissions allow. Paid subscribers at Substack can also make story requests. Or find me at my business site (https://movedconsulting.co.uk) if you want to pay me to do something other than write for you!
Here you'll find author's readings of fiction published elsewhere, as well as short stories themselves, for free and in the shop. You can also support me here to support my lectures and articles on Victorian literature and culture.
