Gaynor J told us:

2nd place – Write On Site competition

“Thanks to Tracey G for posting about the Write On Site website. I registered and received a free credit to enter last week's competition, and came second with my piece 'Longing'! No prize money for me, but thrilled to have ticked off one of my New Year writing resolutions: win top three in a competition. Roll on next Saturday when I am going to stump up £4 to try again!”

1st Feature Published in Major Magazine

“My first feature has been published, the magazine comes out 16th May and I have been commissioned for a second feature. Just wanted to share and thank WB for advice and tips, definitely helped point me in the right direction. I need to get on and do assignment N6 now.”

Tracey G says:

Made my course fees back!

“Just thought I'd share the good news that I have made my course fees back after two years on the Comprehensive Creative Writing Course. I'm thrilled to have won the Choc Lit winter competition with my story ‘The Secret Ingredient’. I have also had two wins this year with the Write-Invite website competitions. I really recommend giving this a go. It's a little scary – every Saturday at 5.30pm there are three themes posted on the website and you then have thirty minutes to write and submit a short story. It costs £4 per go (less if you buy credits in bulk) and if you win you get £50. The top three stories are posted on the Wednesday after each comp and then are voted on by anyone who took part and the results announced the next Saturday. It's good fun and apart from a couple of lovely wins it has inspired some longer pieces. I am the worst at procrastination and also having no self confidence in my writing so these wins have been such a boost to me. My advice is to keep going and keep submitting – you’ll get there in the end!”
