Well here I am back sooner than I thought, but I just had to share this with you and for once it is a proper writerly post.
In this week’s People’s Friend you will find details of their fantastic serial writing competition and I highly recommend having a go.
It’s a long time since I’ve had the time to write a serial, but from my own experience I can tell you it is very rewarding.
And unlike a lot of writing competitions these days, there is no entry fee and there is a proper prize.
All you have to do is buy this week’s issue for all the details and if you’re not already a regular reader don’t just buy it for the competition, take time to enjoy the stories and articles too. I’m looking forward to the weekend when I intend to put my feet up and have a good read.
If that’s not enough for you, there are also details of their Fiction Workshops.
D C Thomson has always had a reputation for encouraging new writers. When I started out in the early 1980s, I found their advice and encouragement invaluable. And here they are all these years later, still doing it!
If you fancy a sneak peek at the stories in this week’s magazine, take a look at Fiction Editor Shirley Blair’s post here. I’m not even sure I can wait till the weekend….
Good luck if you decide to have a go.
