A Writer On Writing: Snapshots Of History

Sally Jenkins suggests a market for stories set in the past.

Do you have an interest in history? Have you ever written a story set in the past? Have you ever heard of the publication Snapshots of History? http://www.snapshotsofhistory.co.uk/

Snapshots of History is a quarterly journal dedicated to all aspects of historical short story writing. It was set up in 2010 and comprises an ongoing serial, short stories, a members’ corner for information of interest plus a quarterly competition. The best entry receives £15 and is printed in the magazine. Runners up may also be included in the journal. There is a £3 entry fee for non-subscribers. Stories should be between 1,000 and 2,500 words and be set no later than the end of the Second World War – and historical accuracy is important.

An annual subscription to the magazine costs £7.50 or individual copies can be bought for £2.00.
