Just a very brief post this week as I'm about to take a much needed few days off (it's hard work setting up a portfolio career!) but there is just time to tell you about Freelance Market News. In case you don't already subscribe, this is a very useful magazine edited by Angela Cox and linked to The Association of Freelance Writers. In fact, if you subscribe, you automatically get a membership card for the Association which is quite useful if you are ever in a situation where you need to prove that you are a writer. (Yes, OK. You could prove it by actually writing something but you know what I mean.)
Freelance Market News (http://www.freelancemarketnews.com) is published 11 times a year and each issue contains detailed market information for a wide range of magazines and newspapers (including overseas ones), competition news, details of editorial changes, filler markets, a book of the month, a letters page, a "How To" article and a writing competition for subscribers with a £50 prize.
I happen to have a spare copy of this month's issue so if anyone would like to see Freelance Market News for themselves, just email me your address via my website (http://www.melissalawrence.co.uk) and I'll be happy to send it to you on a 'first come first served basis'.
