Writers’ News

Just a quick post to blow my own trumpet!

I have an article on page 32 of the December issue of Writers’ News. It’s about buying the perfect Christmas present for your writer friends. Pens and book tokens can get a bit boring year after year so I’ve tried to include some useful alternatives such as a shoebox of ideas (imagine the joy of just picking an idea from a box when writers’ block has struck!) or the gift of time (offer to mind a friend’s children for a couple of hours so that she can get stuck into her novel).

Unfortunately Writers News is only available on subscription with it’s sister publication, Writing Magazine, so I can’t tell you to rush out and buy it. But I do think a subscription would be money well spent (or the perfect Christmas present!) if you’re interested in advice on all aspects of writing and/or information on potential markets for your work.

Both publications also accept freelance articles – so contact the editor if you’ve got a writing related feature idea.  It could be your mug shot gracing the magazines’ pages next!

    Well done Sally, I look forward to reading it! My copy arrived in the post today but I’m not allowing myself to unwrap it until I’ve clocked up 12,000 words of my NaNoWriMo ‘effort’. I’m on 8k so far!
