June 16th, 2014

We can’t say enough about the importance of proofreading your work, even if you’re using a computer with a spell-check facility.

In this article from our archives, Writers Bureau tutor Esther Newton highlights some embarrassing mistakes that even the best spell-check software can miss! Read the rest of this entry »

Save £60 on The Complete Copywriting Course

September 25th, 2009

Don’t forget, if you’re already a Writers Bureau student we’re still looking for submissions for the next issue of Chapter and Verse. The theme is ‘open’ and the editor, Rob, is accepting submissions until mid-October. Why not visit the Writers Bureau Student Area to read the previous two issues and get details of how to send your own work.

Whether you’re a published writer, or still aspiring to get your work into print, one of the most useful organisations is the Society of Authors. As you’d expect, they have some authoritative guides on agents, copyright, permissions, vanity publishing, rates and guidelines for writers (important when you’re asked to set a fee for your work), plus much more. The membership fee if good value, and with over 8,500 members they have the ‘clout’ to still do what they were founded for in 1884: to protect and further the interests of authors.

Last week I mentioned our new Proofreading and Copy Editing course, but we’ve been busy these last few months and have also made another addition to our range: The Complete Copywriting Course. As the name suggests, it explains everything you need to know to set up in business as a copywriter – whether you want to give up the day job, boost your existing income or top up your pension. In the September issue of E-zee Writer there’s a £60 introductory saving on the course. Even if we can’t tempt you to enrol, I think you’ll enjoy the ezine.

And finally, I’m relieved to see that I’m starting to get comments on previous posts. I was beginning to think that only my mum and her cat were reading my blog…

Until next time!

PS Don’t forget that the closing date for our Twitter short fiction competition is 30th September. It’s free to enter – so get exercising those writing muscles.
