Breaking into Serials
Most of you who are regular readers of my blog will know that I have written a serial for The People's Friend (waiting to be published) and have another that has been passed by Shirley, the Fiction Editor, and is now awaiting final approval by Angela, the magazine editor (bites nails).
If anyone fancies having a go at breaking into this type of magazine writing, I, along with fellow serial writers Cara Cooper and Jennie Bohnet am featured in an article in this month's Writers' Forum giving advice on how to do just that.
Rather than reinvent the wheel, I would thoroughly recommend a read of Cara's two blog posts on the subject here and here. In her posts she writes in great detail about her own experiences of writing a serial.
When I first decided to try my hand at writing one, I read previous posts that Cara had written on the subject and subsequently had success with my own serial - thanks Cara! So I am proof that her advice is worth reading.
