Womag Two Weekly!


Calling all womag writers out there! I’m hoping to start a private writing blog that runs simultaneously with the already successful group, ‘Get It Write’ which has been up and running now for six months.

The difference with this group is it will focus purely on short stories for women’s magazines (rather than all writing, as is the case with ‘Get it Write’)

Cally Taylor has kindly given me permission to run the group to the same format as a ‘Story a Fortnight’ – although she won’t be involved with the running of ‘Womag two Weekly’ (may have to change that name - ha!) group in any way. It will be me and whoever dares come on board.

If you are a writer of short stories aimed at magazines such as My Weekly, Woman’s Weekly, People’s Friends etc. and would be interested in submitting and commenting on this type of story on a fortnightly basis, please email me a.s.a.p. My email address is on my profile! So let's see what the demand is and go from there....GREAT!

Hi Gaelikaa - I will put you on the list immediately :-)

Good luck Mandy - I don't write short stories but what a good idea!

Cathy said...

I've only dabbled in that market, with no success, and must concentrate on finishing my novel first. But if I ever decide in future to go for the womag market seriously, I would be interested. The success of SAF members is inspiring :)

Amanda said...

Thank you FP

Yes, Cathy the SAF group is inspiring - and I feel it would be really helpful to have a deadline to spur me on as much as anything else. Do email me if you ever want to come on board! :)

I wish you all the best with your endeavour!! Sounds like a good idea :-)

This is a great idea and I would join if I wasn't already in the SAF group, but definately recommend this sort of group to anyone.

Amanda said...

Thanks Debs, SAF is very inspiring.

LilyS said...

This is a great idea. Just emailed you :)

Amanda said...

Thanks Lily :-)

Good luck Mandy!

Jaqui P said...

Yes Good Luck with this Mandy.

If I ever decide to concentrate on this market I'd be interested but for now I am just settling into your other group and think perhaps the things I write aren't at the moment very womans' mag. Guess this could change but at the moment I'm happy trying different sorts of writing. Good Luck as ever. You're a one woman wonder!!

Amanda said...

Thanks Helen :-)

Hi Jaqui - Yes do let me know if you ever want to concentrate on womags too. I don't know about one woman wonder - you should see my ironing pile! :-)

Good luck with this! The Story a Fortnight group has worked brilliantly well for all its members (I'm one) and I wish your group just as much success.

Thank you Womag!
