Freefall Writing Competition – get scribbling!


We spoke a few posts ago about Barbara Turner-Vesselago’s new book, “The Art of Freefall: Writing without a Parachute”.  To mark the launch of the book, her publishers have a writing competition which anyone can take part in.

So if you’re a budding writer, visit their website at  First prize is a coaching session with Barbara by phone or Skype, a signed copy of her new book when it is published in February and your entry published on-line.

So, if you find yourself looking for a diversion from over-eating and James Bond films over Christmas, get scribbling!!!  Closing date is 12 noon Monday 14th January 2013.

We’ll post the flyer for the book launch in Bristol as soon as we have it.

Good luck!
