Gatehouse Press is sorry to announce that we have been obliged to change the date for the announcement of our shortlist for the 2014 Gatehouse Press Open Submission. This has been because of the unexpected volume of submissions of a high quality, and the necessity of subjecting each of these submissions to an extended reading process. As a result, we have moved the announcement for the shortlist to the weekend of the 24th of October 2014. As an amendment to the previous statement of the rules for entry (section 9), authors who have been selected for the shortlist will be contacted by telephone or by email before midnight on the 27th of October. Those who have not been contacted by this time should assume that their work has not been successful in the 2014 submission period.
Authors who have submitted work will receive a notification by email confirming this amendment to the schedule. We plan to make a further announcement regarding the date of the final selection in due course.
The New Fictions series seeks to publicise the best new writing, not only through publication but also through readings and events. Building on the substantial critical success of Gatehouse Press’ Lighthouse journal and its sleek, elegant print format, New Fictions will provide a crucial platform for emerging writers who are able to redefine the limits of the short fiction genre.
