Q: Ian can you tell us more about Fiction to Go?
Ian: I have written a number of short stories over the years, but have always had
a problem finding somewhere to submit them. Competitions are alright, but
always over subscribed for just 3 winners at best and I don't write a
woman's magazine style of story. So I thinking there will be others looking
for the same thing and as there are only a limited number of such sites
online so far - amazingly - Fiction to Go was born.
I have created Fiction To Go to provide an outlet for good quality short
fiction for both the writer and the reader. Also, with the move to mobile
entertainment the provision of short fiction in eBook and audio formats give
the consumer the best of both worlds, an option in how to enjoy each piece.
Please check out the website to learn more about Fiction to Go, it really does look a novel and interesting alternative to fiction download sites. You can even subscribe to receive regular downloads or short stories to feed your reading fix.
The Indoor Writer knows Ian from West Sussex Writers, where he is also on the current committee. He writes fiction and is also a playwright and a prolific producer/director of stage plays. So is Ian a man of sound mind and sensible ideas? No, of course not, he's a writer!
Tessa Hadley was talking with Mariella Frostrup on Open Book (12 May Sunday 4pm R4, listen here) about her new novel 'Clever Girl'. But Tessa is also an avid writer of short fiction and stated that when writing a short story you can be "deliciously ridiculous". I liked that. The Indoor Writer met the wonderfully enthusiastic Tessa Hadley last November at a RSL Masterclass on the art of the short story (read more here). So why not write some "deliciously ridiculous" stories for Fiction to Go...
