This Week on Writers Abroad
Category: Site News
Tags: writers abroad site news members news writing

Despite everyone being busy with friends and family over the summer, last week seems to have been a productive one for members of Writers Abroad.

Blog: Laura has posted an interesting blog we can all relate to, asking questions about why and what we read, and what happens after we’ve finished a book.

Muse: Sue has some great ideas for this week, inviting us to write a humorous sketch, something from a one line prompt, something for the Ad Hoc word prompt for this week – ‘hill’, or a 40-line ballad. Take your pick.

Bragging Stool:  Congratulations go to Angela who has some hush hush news of reaching the last ten in a high-profile flash fiction competition, which I’m dying to shout out about by name, but have been sworn to secrecy! All will be revealed in the next few days, after which she can grace the bragging stool again.

All the usual suspects – Sue, Crilly, Chris N, Angela and Laura seem to be taking over the Ad Hoc site and have all been published again. Well done.

My own disappointment at getting no further than the shortlist in the I Must Be Off travel competition was slightly eased by a smaller achievement – winning a runner-up prize in the Erewash ‘books’ themed flash fiction competition.

New Forum: Sue has created a new forum called ‘How To – a guide for members’ which you can find under ‘General’. Here you will find her topic ‘Overview’. Particularly helpful in showing how to upload and post an image with a muse, or anything else. Also some help with how to post a Muse.

September Challenges & Opportunities: This topic is up and running on the forums. More ideas welcome.

WA Magazine: Jo has sent out our first newsletter to all those on our mailing list, which includes information on the publication of our seventh e-mag in November. Those of us, including myself, need to get on with writing whatever they’ve signed up for. Last call is the end of September.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive writing week!
