I've mentioned this here before, but it's worth a reminder. The People's Friend runs a lovely blog - here. The most recent post is all about how artist David Young brings writer Pat Posner's characters to life with his illustrations. Pat's been writing a series of stories based in a prefab village after the war - bit like a magazine soap opera.
One thing I love about The People's Friend is how hard they try to bring their readers and writers together. This blog is a great example of that, as is their lively Facebook page. If you're on Facebook, 'Like' the page to join in the daily discussions of everything from prunes to popstars with plenty of Scottish weather thrown in for good measure!
