Who's In October 2016's Writing Magazines?
  • Who's in October 2016's magazine? The magazines probably won’t be in the shops until 1st September so DON’T EXPECT THEM UNTIL THEN.

    If you spot yourself, please let us know which magazine and WHICH PAGE; and the name the article appears under if it differs from your Talkback name. If you spot someone else, PLEASE LET THEM post the details here.

    Remember: if mentioning a story, don’t give away the ending.

    * This issue has the Competition Special.*
  • I have spotted a TBer or three... even more. :)
  • Well it won't be me this month as I have neither entered anything nor done anything worthy of note in such an illustrious tome.
  • kado
    Mine has just arrived.
  • Me apparently :)
  • Ooh well done. Doing what?
  • Goodness, they're arriving early aren't they? No sign of mine - but then I wasn't expecting it for a few more days.
    Well done, BR... for whatever reason! :)
  • I'm wondering if I make another appearance. I suspect there's some coverage of the Just Write short story competition but I don't know if I managed to elbow my way into any of the official photos.

    I really must subscribe, although the walk to the newsagents probably does me good.
  • Mine is here. Had a quick flick through and saw br at the top of a very long bit. Well done, old chap!

    I shall devour it later.

    Article about thinking outside the box when it comes to writing :)
  • Don't know page or title, but most of you know I'm Steven Chapman by now :)
  • Yes, mine's arrived too. Good to see they've got back to normal schedule for subscribers.
  • Just got mine. Not a TBer but have spotted Ian Ayris (he knows 2 tbers at least :P) straight away but then I knew he had an article coming up.

    Will read it now...
  • BR, you're on pages 14 and 15. Title Does it have to be a box?
  • 14 is a good number...

    :P
  • Well done, b-r.
    October already? But it's still summer.
  • Well done BR, looking forward to reading it later this afternoon. :)
  • I always look forward to reading them, because I forget what I wrote five minutes after I send the buggers off :P
  • Yay! After my massive rant last month about delays, I came home to a surprise. I'll probably suss the competition insert before the mag itself!!
