Just got back from a weekend in Wales. Visiting Mother in law. She’s a great cake maker, and sent us off with a fruit cake and a bag of mince pies. It was lovely and sunny, even though a bit windy. We spent time looking around the station at Portmadoc where there is a new Highland railway line from Porthmadog to Caernaervon.
A great little magazine is the Great War magazine. Details here My article ‘Angel of East Anglia’ all about Edith Cavell and her work helping our captured soldiers to escape back home to freedom is in the January 2011 issue. The editor Mark Marsay doesn’t pay for submissions, but you get a copy of the magazine. It’s a small A5 glossy book and it’s full of lovely stories and memories of WW1. If anyone has anything from that era, I would recommend sending it in.
Another nostalgic magazine is Best of British. Editor Caroline Chadderton is looking for articles relating to the 1950’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Browsing the website will give an idea of what they need. A free copy of the magazine comes with acceptances, and they pay as well, so good luck if you have a go at sending something there.
I’m thinking up some ideas now for the Writelinkers Christmas magazine. They’re looking for articles and fiction up to 500 wds, poems and jokes or anything Christmassy. You need to be a member though to have your work published in there. It’s quite fun, so having a bash at that now.
See you all soon. Happy writing.
