   Essential for writers Reviewed 02 January 2014
I have been a subscriber of this magazine for years. Each issue is full of useful writing tips, competitions, stories and interviews with published authors. As a writer myself it's great to hear stories from other struggling writers, especially when you hear of their success. I also find it very useful for gathering information on potential markets where I can send my manuscripts and short stories. Simply the best writing magazine on the market.
