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 Competition - closes 31 December 2017

Graffiti Magazine is produced by two members of my writing group, Catchword. I once had a page on my website with details of some local #writing #competitions, including those in Graffiti Magazine, but since my website was redesigned this page has now gone. So, here are details of the latest short story competition.
I am not involved in running it, and although I have occasionally acted as a judge, I am not judging  this one. If entering please send entries to the postal address given.
