Here’s your chance to meet the Woman’s Weekly experts and develop your own writing.
Our Fiction Writing Workshops are becoming ever more popular. If you want to learn how to write the sort of fiction we want to buy, then come along and see what it’s all about. There’ll be plenty of fun and a supportive, friendly atmosphere.
Suzanne Ahern is especially known for her dramatic plots and vivid background settings. Since 2004, she has regularly been writing serials for us, both under her own name and the pseudonyms of May Healing and Lily Isles. Her novel, Joaquin’s Dream, and other stories are available for e-readers from www.amazon.co.uk
Gaynor Davies has been Woman’s Weekly Fiction Editor since 1987 and is also the editor of Woman’s Weekly Fiction Special. She loves lending a guiding hand to our ever-growing band of writers of short stories and serials and she has seen Woman’s Weekly’s fiction expand its scope to include a broad range of styles and moods. It is the individual voice within each writer that she loves to encourage when searching for new talent.
