There aren’t many commercial outlets for short stories, but Woman’s Weekly actively seeks submissions and offers advice on what they are looking for on their website under Writers’ Guidelines. They also hold periodic workshops – in Manchester and London – chaired by their Fiction Editor. (There are enticing-looking craft and needlework workshops, as well)
