Ten top tips: A world of opportunity

Whether you’re looking for topics to inspire your writing or potential markets for publication, there’s a lot to be said for looking a little further afield and considering other countries. Liz Gregory helps you get started on foreign shores…

Making the most of technology

It’s a bit of a cliché but it’s entirely true to say that the world feels a much smaller place these days, thanks to the ease with which we can communicate with others all around the globe. We can chat to other writers overseas via social media sites, and perhaps pick up new contacts and opportunities this way. Hashtags are not limited to one particular country, and the number of English speakers worldwide makes it possible for us to see what is going on in the world of writing far beyond our immediate location. Likewise, there are millions of Englishlanguage websites that might just provide opportunities for publication, remembering to tweak your language where necessary to suit an American or other audience. Keep an eye on Writers’ News every month for a heads-up on some of the international sites accepting submissions.
