Please can someone explain what is meant by topic because I’m getting really confused. What, for example, is the difference between fiction and creative writing? Does ‘contemporary’ tackle stories set today but remembering their childhood?
Has anyone been published with Cranthorpe Miller recently and do they have good connections for getting books into bookshops please? Did you end up making money and does anyone know if other big publishing houses have a negative view of authors who go down the hybrid publishing route please?
Hello everyone , firstly I hope you are all keeping well and being creative.
I am a screenwriter and have several scripts with known directors and producers with connections to Universal and Netflix etc. I sold seven scripts last month alone that are now making major offers of Hollywood stars. I am searching for an agent that can help me deal with contracts and get scripts to those that are unsolicited. I have done well getting contacts and scripts up till now but think it’s time to be represented.
I'm updating a Christmas story I wrote in 2000 and am wondering what people are doing about including the pandemic in light-hearted works. Do I ignore it and describe a pre-covid world in the hope that such normality will have returned by the time of publication, or do I slide it into the text, imagining that in three or four years' time, kids will still be regarding masks, distancing, bubbles, etc., as a real and necessary part of Christmas???

Just entered my first writing competition in 7 years after various health issues and life events conspired to take away the spark.
Regardless of the outcome it felt good to apply myself to regular and consistent periods of writing and although I only had to write the first chapter and synopsis for the competition I actually completed a whole novel!
Thanks also go out to Richard Elder, Victoria Whithear and Jonathan Hopkins for their wise words which proved invaluable in getting my synopsis done.
This rule "No simultaneous submissions" bothers me a lot. It's present in most, if not all submission guidelines. I understand that publisher doesn't want other publishers to have the exact same novel, that is perfectly understanding and valid point. Problem is, at least in my experience, most publishers will not answer to your submission, ever. Not even a short formal letter of rejection which I would really appreciate.
I recently watched a documentary about Dennis Wheatley and was quite surprised to hear that he wrote all of his manuscripts by hand using a pencil.
Being left-handed and finding the physical act of writing by hand quite taxing, I choose to do all my writing on my laptop using Scrivener and wondered how my fellow writers on this site create their work.
