Who's in December 10's magazines due out soon?



  • I saw another Tber in WN
  • Thanks, everyone.

    In case anybody's wondering why page 10 appears to be followed by page 13 in Writing Magazine, it's because page 11 has been wrongly numbered. WM obviously isn't superstitious!
  • Of course, I do realize that 13 does, in a general sense, follow 10. But not usually so closely.
  • Well done, Jay!
  • Writing Magazine's letters page 9 mentions "Borders, Smiths and Waterstone's". Didn't something happen to one of them?
  • In the UK yes, but they are still in the US I think.
  • Only just looked at my copy and I read the Gervaise Phinn article because I am going to see him tonight. I hadn't heard of him but a couple of people read some of his work at my writing group. This led to a group of us booking tickets as he is playing in Bridlington tonight.

    Mentioned it to my parents who had heard him on the radio over the years (big Radio 4 listeners) so I shall be intersted to see what the show is like.
  • Carol the other TBer was in WN. I think Kateyanne probably saw the same one
  • Yeah he lights up the page.
  • [quote=Jay Mandal]it's because page 11 has been wrongly numbered[/quote]
    That's actually intentional Jay - p11 is "Turning the Pages" - but I've not been entirely comfortable with it myself, think it's the designers being a bit too clever!
  • [quote=dora]My children were interested to see Derek Landy on the front, author of Skulduggery Pleasant. We have all those books. [/quote]

    Me too, I enjoyed that article.

    I'm not a fan of Phinn, though!
  • I haven't received my copy this month, if not in the post when I get home tonight will have to send an email.
  • Yes one of my sons loves the Skullduggery books and read the article with interest.

    Thanks, Webbo, for this little gem (Writers' News, page 21 www.phrases.org.uk ).

    Who else misread "The International Rubery Book Award" on page 31 of Writers' News?
  • finally received my copy will try and read tonight
  • Just spotted my name on page 4 of WN. I got an honourable mention in the Milton Keynes short story competition. Not mentioned is the fact that the organisers sent me a family season ticket to Bletchley Park. I'm looking forward to using it and maybe finding inspiration for another story and/or article.
  • I spotted that as we were doing the story Montholon - well done, and nice to get the free ticket too!
  • MN - Well done on the hon. mention! And how nice to have an unexpected bonus.
  • Well done Montholon
  • Congratulations Montholon- good prize too, considering.
  • Yay, well done Montholon. Good 'silent' prize - except we've all shouted about it now!
  • I'm in it too. I'm the paper it was made from. My mate is the ink.
  • Thanks, everyone. The story was fun to write, especially as I'd never visited Milton Keynes!

    There's still another Tber who is in WN.
  • come on, TBer,own up!
  • Congratulations, Jay! I read it whilst we were at Aldeburgh Poetry Festival last weekend.
  • Nor have I!
