Dear Reader

I always write this letter as the last thing in each month’s production cycle, my chance to pull the threads together a little and tie off the issue into a neat bow. We’ve been mindful of the coronavirus situation for a while now, but the situation has escalated rapidly as we’re putting this issue to bed.

I’ve seen a few posts online about social distancing being perfect for getting that novel written, or to really focus on some writing project or other. It could be, but I’m not going to suggest that should be your priority. We’re all stressed, we’re all under pressure. If writing helps, and it may well do, all the better, but don’t beat yourself up about achieving some kind of target. All you need to do right now is get through this. Be sensible, be safe and, as Milly Johnson would say, be kind. After today, the WM editorial and production teams will be working remotely but rest assured, we are still here and it’s business as usual for the magazine, Writers Online, our social networks and The Writer’s App.
