UK magazine or journal suggestions?
Morning everyone. Is anyone from the UK stuck at home like me, unable to get to work? I'd like to pretend it's a shame, but here I am with more time to write.
I've been thinking about a short story I've had sitting on my hard drive for a while now. The only problem is, I've never found anywhere - an online or print journal/zine - that it seems to fit. I must be looking in the wrong places. It's gritty and a very British story in terms of the dialect used by the characters (bearing in mind that it's a first person narrative, too). So I'm using words like "gobshites" and "lugholes". I'm unsure whether any non-UK magazines would take it. There's a suggestion of a fantastical aspect, too, but it's actually a very down-to-earth story - with the speculative element proving to be a lie by the end of the story.
Based on that, can anyone think of any publications it might suit?
