Hi. Just a quick post today as I'm busy with 'stuff'. Writing of course, but also gardening and getting ready for adventures in the van - we'll be staying in at least five different locations and three different countries before the end of the month and it all starts today.
I've still not heard anything from Stylist magazine, nor do I know of anyone who has. I did spot that they've changed their submission requirements a little.
Lipstick and Lies have temporarily closed to submissions. They've contacted everyone who has had work accepted. Were you one of the lucky ones! (I hadn't even decided whether or not to sub when I discovered they'd closed.)
My womag news
This kind of thing doesn't happen often, but I currently have a story in Yours, The People's Friend and People's Friend special.
Free entry competition news
This competition is for literary novels over 30,000 words and offers £1,500 plus publication to the winner.
If you have any womag or other writing related questions I'm very happy to try to answer them – provided you do it as a comment on this blog. Sorry but I simply don't have time to answer individual queries by email and social media. Often more than one person asks the same thing and even when it's just one person the chances are that someone else was wondering. If you ask on the blog, not only can others benefit from the answer, but more people will see the question so you're more likely to get a helpful reply.
Whether you have questions or not, please do leave a comment if you find the blog useful, interesting or otherwise worth me taking time out from all the other 'stuff' I have going on!
Here's how to leave a comment. (It's free and you don't need to create an account.)
