If you enjoyed this post you might like my free email newsletter sent out every six weeks (or so). Most of it is devoted to competitions and publication opportunities but I hope the newsletter is MORE than a listings guide…I want it to be something you look forward to reading, where you might get ideas for a story or for a different way of tackling a writing project.

    Bridget, this is a wonderful opportunity. Not for me of course – British humor is not one of my strength, here to the west. But I do spend a lot of time laughing along through public television!

    • Ditto. (But might muse it over a bit as far as the writing. Thanks for the info)

      I feel the same, it’s not an opportunity I could grab but I do appreciate those who can write laughter.
