Thanks to writer Paula Williams for sending me this heads up:
In the editorial in this week's Lady, Rachel Johnson, the editor, says:
"It's all my fault and last week's announcement from our Literary Editor that funeral rites are being read over The Lady short story was somewhat premature. crossed wires, I'm afraid. The short story is a much loved feature of the magazine, as is fashion and you will be finding them within our pages over the next few weeks -we are just finding the right short story and the right fashion for you."
So keep sending out those shorts!
