Are you a writer? How would you like the chance to be personally mentored by me for a whole year?
I am thrilled to launch my search for five talented writers who will embark on a year of challenge, scary adventure, huge opportunities and lots of fun!
What I'm looking for
I'm looking for writers of any genre who are committed to investing a year in their writing. Not only will talent count but also a demonstrable desire to make this year the year when things happen. Because of this, four of the chosen writers will be asked to pay a course fee of £80 (because this is an investment in your future career) - and I will choose one writer to receive a scholarship place for free. I'm asking all entrants to submit a chapter of their work, plus complete a personal statement outlining their goals for their writing. It all sounds very serious, but this way people who are really determined to be writers will stand out. I can't promise you a publishing deal (I wish I could!) but I can promise you will learn about yourself as a writer, hone your craft and put yourself in the best possible place to pursue your dream.
So, are you up for a year of awesome writing adventure?
To enter, download the application form HERE and send it with ONE chapter of your work to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
APPLICATIONS WILL CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT ON THURSDAY 14TH FEBRUARY. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON SATURDAY 16TH FEB.
GO FOR IT!

I'm writing like a crazy person to meet my deadline for submitting the first draft of Book 5, so I just wanted to share a little something with you that's made me smile in the middle of the scribbling craziness...
Because everything is better with FRAGGLES...
