Writing Magazines - Freelance Market News

Freelance Market News is produced by the Writers Bureau, who provide one of the most established correspondence writing courses. FMN is available to any writer on subscription.

It is a slim newsletter type of publication which is sent out 11 months in the year. It is also one of the most invaluable sources for markets, both in the UK and overseas. In addition, it highlights current competitions, magazine filler opportunities and Editorial Changes, even more helpful in the current climate.

Subscribers have the chance to enter a monthly competition, which alternates between short stories, articles, poetry, limericks and so on and the winner receives £50. There is also the opportunity to submit one piece of work each year for a free professional critique, reduced entry fee to the annual Writers Bureau Competition, and membership of the Association of Freelance Writers.

I thoroughly recommend Freelance Market News. And for working writers, it accepts (and pays for) articles on any aspect of writing. I have an article on 'Finding Ideas for Writing' in the March issue.

See the website for full details of subscription and submission.

I'll whisper this, Rosemary, but you're my FMN.

Ha - I like that, Bill!

I posted my cheque for FMN this morning Rosemary. Well done on your sale to The Weekly News.

Thanks, Betty. Glad to see you've sent the cheque! It was a good weekend, wasn't it.
