Belatedly, happy new year from all of us at Writing Magazine. How’s your 2016 shaping up? Let’s hope this is the year you fulfil all your writing dreams. If you’re still considering what your major projects will be, perhaps take a breather and let something come to you naturally. There are plenty of comps and opportunities to keep you busy in the short term below… and you never know what ideas they might inspire you to develop further.

We've been happily busy, judging by the outstanding entries for our recent big competitions, to win a self-publishing package from Matador Books and a place at the Iceland Writers' Retreat. I can't wait to reveal the winners, and I'm sure you'll be interested to read them, but we'll both have to wait... make sure you don't miss our April issue for the big announcements.

As always, we’d love to hear your updates. Let us know what projects you’re planning, or any big events you’ve got coming up, on Facebook, Twitter or just email.

Now get writing!
