Exciting News!

As many of you know, I’m a tutor for The Writers Bureau, which I love. I also write articles and short stories, and offer an editing service. I’m going to be continuing with all of those, but I am about to embark on something new.

The wonderful writer, and my fellow tutor, Lorraine Mace has been the competition judge for Writers’ Forum magazine for a number of years. She judges their rolling monthly competition and writes two columns for the magazine. Lorraine has recently been offered a two-book deal with a top publisher and needs more time to work on her books. I’m thrilled for Lorraine; she has worked so hard over the years and her success is richly deserved. So, from next month, I’m taking over Lorraine’s role at Writers’ Forum.

If you’d like to know more about the competition, click here. If you feel inspired to enter, please do! I’d love to read your story. You don’t have to subscribe to the magazine to enter. International entries are accepted.

    Really awesome news! I might have to submit something, just to get you to read it. ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. CARAMEL says:

    I am so pleased for you!!! You are such a superb writer and will make an excellent judge…xx

  11. So correct me if I am wrong, are you taking over Lorraines โ€˜Notes from the Margin…?

    • Hi Sharon, no, Lorraine is still writing that column. That’s in Writing Magazine. I’m taking over Lorraine’s columns in Writers’ Forum, which is a different writing magazine.

      • Oh heck sorry lol ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธbetter check that one out. sorry again! Ill just disappear to hide my embarassement!

      • Don’t worry, Sharon. It’s an easy mistake to make! We’ve all done things like that.

      • Thanks but I do feel a right burk getting the names completely wrong like that! Lol I wouldnโ€™t have thought someone would have been that daft like me lol ๐Ÿ˜‚

        Now, forgive my further ignorance and idiocy but is the writers forum within the writers magazine… (ok I admit it I looked for a separate mag ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธplease tell me I wouldnโ€™t be the first to do that either? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป)

      • Writers’ Forum is a completely separate magazine to Writing Magazine. You can buy it in WHSmiths or subscribe: https://writers-forum.com/buy-and-subscribe/
        Really don’t worry, Sharon ๐Ÿ˜Š

      • Haha another cock up then ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Right while you are here, is it a part of the deal when you join the freelances writers association as I know you can subscribe to a magazine for a reduced rate but canโ€™t remember which one.. or have I got that wrong now…?

        I was looking on the readily site which is why I asked.. but if itโ€™s a reduced rate with the FWA it may be worth joining that again. Aw thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š xx

      • You’re thinking of Writing Magazine. That’s the one linked to the FWA. But I’ve subscribed to Writers’ Forum too! It’s not a bad deal and certainly worth it. But of course, it’s up to you ๐Ÿ˜€ And don’t you worry, Sharon. It’s always better to check xx

    It always encourages personal growth to reach out and do something new and inspiring. Congrats on your new endeavor.

  13. Wonderful news Esther. Congratulations. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Annika Perry says:

    Wow!!! That’s wonderful, Esther! Congratulations! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜€ I often read Lorraine and her views about the Winners! Good luck to her and to you! Xx

  15. That’s great news! I used to subscribe to both Writers’ Forum and Writing Magazine and enter competitions but two years of unemployment followed by a year on very low wages meant that I had to make cuts. Perhaps I’ll buy the occasional copy and enter the occasional competition now, inspired by your latest progress.

  16. Congratulations, Esther! ๐Ÿ™‚
