Insight Into The Women's Magazine Short Story Market

On Saturday I held my first short story workshop. This is a new venture for me, so it was a bit of a 'feel the fear and do it anyway moment'.

I'm pleased to say that it went really well. Five lovely writers attended and all participated with enthusiasm and commitment.

The same workshop will be running again on 17 September if anyone is interested in coming along. I'll also be running a follow up workshop called 'Moving On' (probably in October - date to be announced) and will be offering email critiques in the near future for those who are unable to come along to a course.

If you're interested in any of these things, please feel free to contact me via my profile for more information.

Edited to say, details are now here.

So glad it went well, Helen.

Hi Helen! How nice to be described as a 'lovely writer'. :)

You put together a fantastic workshop as well as being incredibly generous with your insight and knowledge of that market. I've put some of your exercises into practice already. Now just got to get on with the writing!

Well done Helen, I can imagine it would be a scary thing to run your first ever workshop and I'm pleased it went so well.

Really pleased it was a success, Helen :o)

I can certainly recommend Helen's short story courses. It was such an enjoyable day-the critique was incredibly helpful as well.

I would urge anyone interested in the woman's magazine market to go along :-)
