|New TK'n'C Editor - David Barber.|
My long time friend and fellow writer has been getting itchy feet (and big ones at that!), after his eighteen month stint over at The Flash Fiction Offensive. This, coupled with the fact that we've recently had to close submissions a few times due to backlog and our own respective writing commitments, made the decision a no-brainer.
When the opportunity arose, Matt, Lily and I literally bit his hands off (a horror story in itself). Having prized them from Lily's fangs and sown them back on, Dave is now ready to get stuck in, reading, editing, and offering constructive feedback where necessary. Consequently, submissions will be opening again very soon.
Dave brings to the table, an eye for tyops (!), a great understanding of story structure and, going off his own short story collection, FROM A CROWDED MIND Vol. 1, an expert knowledge of what the reader desires.
It feels right to have Dave on board, since TKnC launched him onto the writing scene after many years away. Since August 2009, he's had over a dozen pieces published on our site, the first of which, SORRY LOVE, won a Bullet Award.
So, please join us in welcoming our new co-editor, David Barber!
