People's Friend Pocket Novels - latest guidelines.

I posted the My Weekly pocket novel guidelines yesterday.

For People's Friend, the word count is shorter - and of course there are style differences too.

I'm not absolutely sure about the pay rate, but believe they're similar for both.

Hi,

I was at a People's Friend writing workshop last week and Shirley Blair (the editor) said 40,000 words for three hundred pounds.

Patsy said...

@ Denise - thanks for confirming that.

Do PF respond if your story isn't suitable?

Patsy said...

Yes, John.

Hi Patsy and Other Readers. I've just completed an Open University creative writing course and am looking into publishing short stories. Looking to my possible future career, I would like to know about Pocket Novels published by Womags. Specifically, how do I build up the stamina to write a 40,000 word story? At the moment, it's beyond my imagining.
Thanks for your time!
