Some good news…

on April 23, 2013

This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for, a piece of good news. There’s nothing like a little publishing success to get me refocused and positive. An article on the workshop I delivered at the National Association for Writers in Education (NAWE) conference appears in the current issue of Writing in Education, spring 2013. My name even features on the cover, although the print is probably too small for you to read it here. Also included in the journal is an interesting article on coaching for writers by Elizabeth Forbes and ‘Imaging the Story’ where Paul Houghton considers the role of the visual.


And, more positive news comes from Helen Pizzey at PURBECK! magazine who has included a review of Four Buses for the May/June issue of the magazine.

What keeps you on the tracks for writing?

    Well done, Gail. Seeing your name in print always does it!

  2. I’d already spotted your article, Gail, as I’m a NAWE member. Congratulations! Positive feedback from a workshop keeps me going and, sometimes, reading a poem or short fiction and thinking “I could do that” or “I want to do that” or “I want to write that from another viewpoint”. The important thing is to keep going.

  3. How do I get a copy. E mail me. I am interested to see Moy McGory here and would like to contact her. She wrote a wonderful medieval book called The Fading Shrine. I met her , gosh it must be fifteen years ago on a course in Scotland. It was for readers and we had a ball for five days in a country house. And well done on your article too.x

      I’ll drop you an email – Moy sounds like a useful contact – her article ‘delves into the childhood lexicon of saints’. The discussion reminded me of Top Girls the play by Caryl Churchill which included a reference to Pope Joan.

  4. Brilliant honey 🙂
