From our Short Story shortlist to publication

We were pleased to get an email from Jim Kroepfl, who regular readers will recall was awarded both 2nd and 3rd place in our 2013/14 Short Story Competition. Jim submitted his 3rd-place story, The Front Line, to the Midway Journal literary contest.... and we're delighted to hear that the story has been placed.

As the Midway Journal wishes to publish The Front Line, we've temporarily removed the story from our website.

Our warmest congratulations to you, Jim!

The Business of Writing

This writing business means that there's often something new coming out and this week we have two new publications;

Elizabeth Ducie's The Business of Writing is now available in paperback as a single volume.

Originally published as three separate e-books, this useful book provides a simple road map for writers who want to set up and run their own small business.



Meanwhile Sophie Duffy, Cathie Hartigan and Margaret James are looking forward to Christmas with A Christmas Celebration, a compendium of stories, quizzes and puzzles.

Both are available in paperback and on Kindle.
