A Competition, A Novel Workshop & A Beta Reader Request

Three bits of (potentially) useful information for you:

  • Romantic comedy novelist, Alison May, is running a Developing Your Novel workshop in Birmingham city centre on 28th March. I’ve been on a similar event tutored by Alison and it was very helpful. It costs £44, including lunch and refreshments, and there’s a discount if you book before the end of January. So, if you live in the Midlands there’s no excuse for not getting your novel off the ground in 2015!
  • Modern literary magazine One Story has opened its annual reading period and, until 31st May 2015, is accepting submissions of high-quality literary fiction from outside contributors. They pay $500 and full submission details are here.
  • Anyone looking for a writing buddy/beta reader? I’ve been asked to publicise the following request:
    My name is Sharon, and I’m looking for a volunteer reader for my unpublished chick- lit/romance novel.
    I’m seeking someone who has the time to read it and give honest feedback.
    In return, I’ll read your unpublished novel and give feedback too. We’d correspond via email.
