Writer’s Market January Newsletter

This month there’s an article on the pros and cons of websites for aspiring authors.

There’s also a handful of competitons, including one for which I got flyers in the post last week. I’m not sure how I feel about non-genre-specific competitions. I have an instinct that genre stories don’t do very well in these things and they’re looking for something more literary, regardless of the quality of writing. Having said that, I don’t pay much attention to the winners so if anyone knows of speculative fiction winning a competition that wasn’t specifically for speculative fiction, I’d be interested.
