Today is a start of the month updating for Writing Short Fiction, with two experienced and successful writers joining the already formidable collection of writers on site.
Sue Moorcroft is a successful novelist, short story writer, competition judge and fiction editor, most recently of Writer’s Forum. She has been kind enough to contribute a piece called ‘Hints and Tips for short story competition entries’ to the WSF Tips from the Top section, and in view of her long experience of judging various competitions, her advice is well worth having.
Jeanette Sheppard is a successful short story and flash fiction writer, and she has contributed not only a prize-winning story called ‘No Glitter or Sparkle Allowed’ to the Champion Fiction section, but also a piece on ‘Writing in a Child’s Voice’ to Tips from the Top. All good stuff, and well worth checking out, for anyone with an interest in writing or reading good short fiction.
As for me, a welcome and interesting challenge has come my way, and I’ve taken the offered opportunity to join the editorial staff of the literary magazine, Linnet’s Wings, which has published both my fiction and my poetry in the past. I have a particular brief to encourage new writers, which is a role I think I will enjoy. 2015 well up and running!
