Sad to hear via Jonathan Pinnock, (another Greyling Bay devotee) that the short story magazine Cadenza is no more. I’ve followed Cadenza since I started out in writing, knowing that it had exacting standards for literary short stories. Having submitted several times I was pretty pleased to make even a long list. The previous editor (who passed by here not so long ago) had some great advice for writers, and the current editor, Zoe King, once accept a story of mine for the Buzzwords magazine. As a result these people feel like friends.
Of course, the truth is that I only once bought a copy of Cadenza (in the form of a chunky .pdf file) which I found excellent value as well and highly educational in terms of what was expected of a good short story. If only I had taken out a subscription, and if only more of us did take out subs to the magazines we admire, Cadenza and others might still be with us.
