Wilkie Martin - Surviving Publication

Author of the unhuman series of addictive comedy cozy mysteries set in the Cotswolds. This documents my encounters with publishing and includes things I hope will be useful later. It also covers some local writing competitions and reviews some writing events.

Graffiti Magazine Short Story Writing Competition 31 October 2016

Graffiti Magazine is produced by members of my writing group, Catchword. I used to keep a page on my website where I included details of some local #writing #competitions, including those of Catchword, but since my website was redesigned this page has gone. So here are details of the latest competition. I am not involved in running it, and
although I do occasionally act as a judge, I am not the judge on this one. If entering please send entries to the postal address given.

Graffiti Magazine Issue 20
