The ultimate writing resource

I’ve recently started taking my writing seriously and decided to invest in a magazine for some professional help.
Writing Magazine exceeded all of my expectations. It has a lovely warm community feel to it, with pages and pages of inspiring advice that really motivate me to try new things with my writing.
I’ve started to pick out some of their competitions to enter in the coming weeks. A real goal for me to work on.
I’m thinking of taking one of their online courses next!

Good update

A worthwhile update. I had problems with the previous version which on more than one occasion froze on me. Each time I had to delete and reinstall then download the complete series. It got worse because it made me pay again for some editions. The update is more stable with no crashes to date. I can purchase a new issue on one device and a 2nd device will recognise the purchase only requiring a 2nd download. A nice touch is read whilst downloading and you then don't have to twiddle your thumbs waiting for the download to complete. In summary an overdue update which enhances the user interface significantly. Well done to the developers.
