Writing Magazine on-line

Here is the latest Writing Magazine on-line edition for my followers to peruse so they can view it before either purchasing or signing up for the on-line version, should they so wish:

Get Involved





With an autumnal nip in the air, there's no denying that summer's fading fast, the time of year when many of us get on our “back-to-school” hats and knuckle down to serious projects again. There's no better feeling than wrapping up warm inside with a clean sheet and a head full of ideas, and there are two great times for writers ahead.

We're looking forward to the annual November novel-writing challenge, NaNoWriMo, and just before that, putting together some spooky stories for Halloween. If you're planning either, make sure you don't miss the next issue of Writing Magazine for some great advice – and don't forget to let us know how you get on, whatever you're planning. Reach me on Facebook, Twitter or just email! I’d love to hear what you're up to.

PS We're thrilled to have teamed up with Hodder & Stoughton to offer a free six-month subscription to WM in their brand new Just Write gift set. (It's a voucher, so you can use it to add on at the end of your current subscription if you already have one!) The set also includes their Complete Creative Writing Course as a book and its audio component, The Insider’s Guide to Publishing, and a deluxe notebook – perfect for writers at any stage, and just in time for Christmas! Treat yourself today, drop some heavy hints, or purchase for a loved one on Amazon today.

Jill participated in NaNoWriMo last year and her first novel The Mindwalker is now available in paperback and will be on Kindle on 1 October.

Jill says that ‘more than anything I’ve developed self-help’ and that thanks to Sue’s patience and guidance, she has even had success at selling a story to Take A Break Fiction Feast. Saying ‘it's been busy but it's been great’, Jill is another happy student on our writing courses.
