The Write Place

Issue 9 - February 2014
Happy New Year and welcome to the final issue of The Write Place. This year marks the Writers Bureau’s 25th Anniversary. That’s 25 years of helping people to improve their writing skills and get their work published. So, instead of having the usual quarterly newsletter we’re going to concentrate on having more competitions, more special offers and more ‘events’ – in other words, we’re celebrating!

Issue 8 - September 2013
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. Here at Writers Bureau we’ve been having a little think about the way in which we provide useful information to students and non-students alike.

Issue 7 - May 2013
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. I’m just catching up after a short break in Cornwall. The weather wasn’t perfect but there were lots of brisk coastal walks and some wonderful gardens to visit. Coming from colder northern climes – Manchester – I never cease to be amazed by the wonderful lushness of the subtropical gardens in that part of the country. If you live there, and you’re reading this, please excuse the tinge of envy that’s creeping in.

Issue 6 - February 2013
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. I always enjoy January as there are two things going on. The first is reading through the entries for our Writer of the Year Award – there are some great success stories. But success can be measured in a number of ways and we’re not just looking at the money that the entrants have earned. We also take into account the satisfaction they’ve got from seeing their work published and the enormous confidence boost that this can give.

Issue 5 - November 2012
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. Once again time seems to have flown since I last put pen to paper (well, you know what I mean)! As usual, quite a lot has been happening here at Writers Bureau. In September we held a Facebook event to announce the winners of our 2012 Short Story competition.

Issue 4 - August 2012
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. Despite the continuing recession and the complete lack of summer that we’ve been experiencing (especially here in the North West) there’s definitely a more buoyant feel in Britain at the moment. I don’t know whether it’s the razzmatazz generated by the Olympic games, or the fact that the summer holiday silly season is upon us, but everyone I talk to at the moment seems more optimistic.

Issue 3 - May 2012
Welcome to this issue of The Write Place. Once again, time has flown since the last issue – partly because I was on holiday for a couple of weeks. It was the holiday of a lifetime visiting Los Angeles, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Yosemite National Park and San Francisco.

Issue 2 - February 2012
Welcome to the second issue of our quarterly newsletter, The Write Place. When I was preparing the first one I thought that three months until the next one was due seemed an age. Now it’s here and the time has just flown by. We’re still being plagued by icy winds but there’s a bunch of daffodils in a vase on the table – Spring isn’t that far away!
Issue 1 - November 2011
Welcome to the first issue of our quarterly newsletter The Write Place. I know that studying and writing at home can sometimes seem lonely and our aim is to make you feel that you really are part of the Writers Bureau community.


Alice Vinten Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2020

“All I knew when I joined up with The Writers Bureau is that I'd always wanted to write and never had the nerve to start. I've been an avid reader from an early age, and 'being a published writer' seemed like an unobtainable dream. The Writers Bureau opened my eyes to possibilities that I'd never considered before - writing for magazines, pitching for non-fiction books, and researching the writing industry. On the 18th April 2019, my memoir On the Line - Life and Death in the Metropolitan Police was published in paperback by Two Roads Books.”
