The facebook page, Bring Back Fiction to Women’s Magazines, begun by Julie Phillips has reached 74 members, and growing.
People have commented on the various magazines facebook pages and have written letters to the editors of the magazines. On a positive note some of these magazines have read these requests and have passed on the request to see fiction returned.
If you are interested in saving the short story and bringing back fiction to women’s magazines please post your comment on the magazines’ facebook pages and write letters to the editors.
The magazines that I know of who have dropped fiction are:
Australia – The Australian Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day and New Idea.
UK - Chat, That's Life, Best, Bella, Woman, Woman's Own, The Lady, Take A Break (weekly) and Candis.
We are a huge voice when we stand united, and I believe if we all put an effort in to make our voice heard we will achieve positive results!
