Here's somewhere else to send your writing! The British Council is now accepting submissions for New Writing 15 and the publication is open to writers from the Commonwealth. You can submit stories, poetry, literary essays, memoirs, biography and fiction, including an extract from a work in progress. The deadline for submissions for New Writing 15 is 30 April 2006. The book will be published by Granta in 2007.
Full details and rules can be found here.
The website also has extracts from New Writing 13 so that you can get an idea of the competition and read interviews with the writers about their work. There are also teaching resources for the classroom.
And don't forget the deadline for Silverfish New Writing 6 is March 31st 2006. Rules here. Overseas submissions are welcomed. (Helps to keep the standard up, see?)
