If you haven’t had a chance to read the brilliant bi-monthly What the Dickens? magazine that celebrates creativity in the visual arts and writing, now’s the time to take a look here. There are all sorts of articles of interest including author interviews, book and film reviews, competitions, creative writing and poetry and a fantastic range of visual stimulation. On top of all that, I offer a column titled ‘Help! The dog at my manuscript!’ which answers writers’ questions.
The editor, Victoria Bantock is aiming to get the seventh edition of the magazine published in print as well as on-line. This provides a unique opportunity for a double dose of submissions to be received by 15 September. What the Dickens? magazine invites submissions with the theme of Pumpkin for the October issue and Journey for the December issue. Please get busy with your ideas, be creative and enter your work by the deadline. Full details for submission can be found here.
For inspiration to give a kick start to your writing submission you can find ideas, prompts and writing tasks in issue five, the sunflower edition (look for the old curiosity shop on page 62).
I have a story that I’ve been working on to submit and good luck to others seeking for publication.
