My Writing Week

The words ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day’ are certainly on the tip of my lips this week but that seems to be the pace of life these days. Though, I have a job I love and a great family so I really shouldn’t moan. For the writers amongst you, how is all your writing going? I’d love to know all about your successes or if you’d like to share your experience of the dreaded (rejection) letter that we’ve all experienced, I’ll empathise with you, having received enough to wallpaper my house with 😉

Onto my market of the week for you:

Writing Magazine: Competitions

Writing Magazine’ can be bought in most good size newsagents in the UK. It’s a monthly publication for writers, packed full of useful information on all aspects of writing. The publication also holds monthly short story and poetry competitions. For anyone who likes a set theme, these competitions are ideal. Examples of competitions they’ve held include a short story centred around a journey and a Tanka poetry competition.

Writers who subscribe to ‘Writing Magazine’ will also received the publication’s sister magazine, ‘Writers’ News’. It’s also a monthly magazine and is full of market information. ‘Writers’ News’ runs subscribers’ only monthly short story and poetry competitions, again, usually with a set theme/form.

    Do you know if they have a magazine like this with info about challenges in the US, Esther?

    • I’m not sure if the US has one but I’ll look out for one and let you know. Though, you can subscribe to ‘Writing Magazine’ from outside the UK. They’re happy to ship to the US. They often detail US markets. Their competitions are also open to overseas writers 🙂
