Writing Market: What the Dickens? Magazine

I'll mention right away that What the Dickens? magazine is not offering any payment at the moment, so it's up to you if it appeals as a writing market. They have a lovely new website and are currently looking for poetry, flash fiction, or short stories up to 2000 words on the theme of  'The Busker'. The deadline for the relevant issue of the magazine is 15th February.

The website offers several other ways for writers and creative people to get involved and it certainly appears to be doing its bit to promote the creative arts. There is even a Get Listed section which is free.

If you want to find out more, have a look at the What the Dickens? website.

Meanwhile, over on Romancing History, I'm celebrating 200 years of my favourite Jane Austen novel, Pride and Prejudice - it includes a link to a short YouTube video section of that famous 1995 BBC drama starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

Ooh the wet shirt scene?...can't write any more as I'm off to have a look!

Thanks for the link. Might see if I can 'get listed'.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Sorry - not that one, Wendy!

I'll have a good look too, Patsy.

Thank you, Rosemary, this is exactly what I need now I've finished the day's writing and need a reason to put off the ironing. I'm off to have a look now. x

Thanks for the link, Rosemary.

Hope you enjoy it, Joanna - there's nothing like watching a whole film/drama of a Jane Asuten book to relax!

You're welcome, Joan.

I've lost count of the number of time we've seen that production of P&P. The feature film didn't come near it(in my opinion!).

(And no wet shirt...)

Rosemary Gemmell said...

I have to agree, Frances!

You're welcome, Anne.
