I’ve had less writing time and more real life stuff burning a hole in the chez Rhodes ozone creativity layers- here’s a pic of our new rescue pup/young dog- 10 month old Roxy from Ireland originally- via Darlington now to us in West Yorkshire- all in a few weeks- she’s put on some weight now- she was rather scrawny- she’s super energetic and just jumped our 6 foot stone garden wall today in a canine parkour move that puts us humans to shame.
Which handily leads me to a Creative writing comp the other large animal rescue charity ie the RSPCA are running, with a closing date of 30 April for both short stories and poetry- (fee to enter)
with all profits going to RSPCA at The Holdings in Worcester- so a very good cause.
I have finished editing a YA anthology for Commonword publishers, based in Manchester- which I’ve loved doing and am being paid for! Double joy! Am hoping to add editing/proofreading to my skill tool set and if anyone out there would like to offer me work, it’s £10 per 1000 words (standard rate) and I am happy to edit a small sample for free.
TWO FREE COMPETITIONS.
Why pay entry fees when you can enter for free? and I’ve noticed that for some comps now the entry fees for flash and poetry is heading up to £10 which is a lot of money on 1 punt in the stratosphere. And soon adds up.
Free comp to enter at this link above- a 4 line poem is what they’re after- not too hard surely?
Here’s another free comp- which I read about again on Patsy Collins’s super useful and informative blog- would recommend you all sign up to follow her at:-http://patsy-collins.blogspot.co.uk/
Other free comps –
Legend Press are running occasional free to enter flash fiction comps at http://www.legendtimesgroup.co.uk/legend-press
and so is Dark Regions Press https://darkregions.com/ and if you sign up for their free newsletter you can keep updated.
