It’s Here

11 Jan

Chroma has arrived.

Not the best photo I’ve ever taken, but probably the smartest magazine I’ve ever been in.

A Little Bit of Success, but Just a Little Bit

7 Dec

As you know, I fairly regularly write posts here inspired by Creative Writing Ink prompts. What you maybe don’t know is that they also run monthly, free-to-enter, short story competitions. I’ve won a couple of times in the past, and this month I made it onto the shortlist. You can find the link to the winner at Creative Writing Ink Journal.
I also got a very nice knock back from a journal who liked my work, it just didn’t fit with their theme for that issue. Nevermind. I have seen the proofs for Chroma, where I did fit the theme, but more of that next time.

Chroma Magazine

10 Nov

Very excited to be appearing in the first edition of Chroma Magazine 

I was asked to write creative non-fiction, and I thought it was the first time I’ve really done this, but then I remembered that the first thing I ever submitted was an essay in 1990 on the theme of imagining Glasgow 2000. I won the competition, and thought my writing life would be a breeze from there on in. Ha, Ha, Ha.

Nice to speckle the years with the odd publication and prize though, and haven’t given up hope of the big break.

Chroma – The Red Issue

29 Oct

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had been approached to submit a creative non-fiction piece to a new magazine, well, I am very pleased to say that Shot to the Heart is going to appear in the first issue of Chroma.

Each issue is based on a colour, No.1 is Red. There is a launch event in a couple of weeks in Brighton, unfortunately too far for me to travel – but if you’re nearby you could pop in. Watch this space for how you can make a purchase.

The website for Chroma is gorgeous, so I can’t wait to see the printed edition. Properly chuffed about this one.
