Just got word from British Council that the editors of their anthology, New Writing 15, will be Maggie Gee and Bernardine Evaristo. Submissions are currently being collated and we'll find out in September whose writings made the cut.
Personally, I'm excited! When I sent in my submission (on the last day *groan*), I forgot to attach my short story, and had to resend the email. My snafu has been making me nervous ever since. Getting this email just confirmed they got my story, which is a huge relief. Now to wait. Wake me up when September ends?
If anyone's wondering what I submitted (but I suppose nobody cares :p), it's a story that concerns a father who has brought his son back from England to Malaysia and now his son is finding it hard to get used to life there.
