It looks like Jonathan Telfer is now the editor of both Writers’ News and Writing Magazine.


  • interesting, Jay, thanks for that information. I like Jonathan's style.
    I am supposed to be a letter in there, wait and see, I guess.
  • WF arrived today. Anyone in it?
  • Magazines due out today.
  • I just got October's WM on the way home from work and saw a letter from Jay, congrats Jay!
  • Ooh well done Jay.
  • No WN/WF yet.
  • My post doesn't arrive until much later- not the usual postman at the moment.
  • edited December 2008
    mine's here and yes, my letter is in. Page 67. Pleased with it, she included Walpole's quote in full and it still stands. I am still finding errors ... in every aspect of history I look at. What is it with historians? No wonder I have been given the task of rewriting history, literally!

    Not had a chance to look through,if any other TBers are in there, congratulations, if not, try harder!
  • Mine has just arrived, and I've read your letter- well done Dorothy.
  • Yes, well done Dorothy - though I've not yet read your letter!
  • Hello Carol - are you feeling better now?
  • Yes thanks Stan, just a cold now, so it's a valid reason for staying in the warm to read WN/WM. :)
  • My throat is dry - I think I have a cold trying to get hold of me.
  • Congrats Dorothy!
    I look forward to receiving my copy.
  • (That sounds just like the way mine started.)

    Has anyone else got a mention in this month's issues?
  • I spotted a couple of runners up names, but I'll leave them to find out themselves!
  • Congratulations Dorothy. Mine hasn't arrived yet. I'll have to leave it reading it til later.
  • I've got items on pages MN4 and 34 of Writers' News.

    By the way, I've sold 2,500 books in total - not of A Different Kind of Love. And it looks like Hilary Bowman is still editor of Writing Magazine.

    Well done, Dorothy - I've read your letter.
  • congrats on sales, Jay!!!! Hope my books do as well when they get out there.
  • Well done Jay
  • Read both Jay and Dorothy's letters. Very good. Well done both.
  • Well done Jay, and I recognised a few Talkbackers too.
  • [quote=Jay Mandal]By the way, I've sold 2,500 books in total - not of A Different Kind of Love.[/quote]

    Jay, those are sales that any writer would be proud of. Well done.
  • We're proud of you, Jay!!
  • Yes, well done Jay! Got a shortlisting on the Writers' News short story competition. About time too - I was beginning to think I was losing my touch :-(
  • That's me on page 32 of WN, an article all about using sounds to enhance your fiction. Also got a mention in the shortlist for the short poem competition on page 61 of WM - trouble is I sent 2 entries so I have no idea which one they chose! Not got my Writers Forum for January yet but I understand that my new Book Deal or Bust column is in there and looking good, with a mention on the front cover. I also have an article in this week's Nursery World all about introducing poetry to pre-school children. A good week/month!! Congrats to Jay and Dorothy. Anyone else??
  • Congratulations Viv, really enjoyed the article- and it is a good excercise which I've done regularly.
    Well done richt, thought it was you in the shortlist.
  • Well done VIv and RichT
  • Viv, great item!
  • Christmas seems to have come early for lots of TB members. Well done to all of you who have been featured. An inspriation to keep trying.
  • edited December 2008

  • Well done Jay, Dorothy, Viv and RichT!
  • Well done to everyone. It's nice to have famous friends!

  • Thanks for asking Dorothy I have whispered you a reply hope the whispers are working.
  • Well done to Viv, Jay, Dorothy and Richt. I didn't renew my subscription in time, so I've missed December's issue and will have to go and find a WHS and buy a copy.
  • Josette, you're a bit late to get hold of a December issue. This is the January 2009 issue we're talking about, and it's been out for a week or so already! Where did 2008 go?? Did I miss Christmas?
  • Well done all! I received my mags on Monday and am just reading through now.
  • Er, Viv ... yes ... well .. I think I meant January, did I mean January? What year is it again? :-D
  • Disappointed because I'm not!!! Ho, ho, ho!!!

    Are you trying to tell us something about your favourite place for enjoying WM and WN? :)
  • There's a thread on that very topic. Something about "ablutions"!
