MERRY CHRISTMAS

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

All of us at STORGY would like to wish you a Happy Christmas. We hope you have a truly wonderful day and delight in the company of those you love. May you eat too much, drink with care, and joke and laugh long into the star emblazoned Christmas night.

As we near the end of 2016 and await the dawn of an exciting new year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your continued support! Without you STORGY would not exist. Thank you!

We would also like to thank everyone who submitted their fiction for our consideration; all the writers we published, and those we have not – yet. Whilst we may have declined the opportunity to publish your work, please submit again in 2017. The New Year brings new words. Share them.

We would like to express a special thanks to our Review Team for all their hard work throughout the year, without whom STORGY would not have a review section. Thanks to Joseph Sale, Gareth Dickson, Harry Gallon, Barbara Fiesci-Jones, Michael Prime, Daniel Soule and Joseph Surtees. Your commitment and dedication remain invaluable. Thank you!

Thank you to our illustrators who helped in the design and delivery of our second STORGY Short Story Competition Anthology. Thanks to HarlotVonCharlotte, Amie Dearlove, Henry Davis, and Rob Pearce.
