This month we have expert advice from Simon Whaley on providing extra information for publishers; be inspired by our students' successes; find inspiration and something of use in useful websites, plus Ten Top Tips highlights how to make your website work for you.

USEFUL SITES FOR WRITERS

http://www.literary-excellence.com
Talking of societies here’s one for you, The Society of Literary Excellence, which is “dedicated to the art of great writing (and reading)”. Here’s what you can do on the website and there should be something for everyone amongst this little lot, “Dip a toe into TSLE pool of literature. Luxuriate, rest a while and replenish your soul. Read and write poetry, short stories, book reviews, speeches, bios and much more. Enter TSLE monthly short story and poetry contests. Submit manuscripts for TSLE annual competition. TSLE has many competitions check the contest page regularly for details. Become a member of TSLE and display your work on your own TSLE web page. Submit bios on famous authors, poets or personalities and post them for others to enjoy. Send in your favourite quotes, famous epitaphs, anecdotes or any other tit-bits you come across.”

http://www.write-invite.com/write-invite.php
This is a website dedicated to short story competitions and they describe themselves as “an initiative to invite absolutely anyone to write. Everyone likes to hear a story, and tell one too. We welcome writers of all ages, experiences and styles to get involved in our short story writing competitions.” You can register to be kept up to date with all the latest news and events plus online entry for featured competitions. The Outright Day, details in the WriteInvite tab, sounds fun and interesting.

Remember, if you run a website that you think may be of use to our readers, let me know. If I like it, I’ll publish a link to it giving you a free plug. What could be better than that?
