Exciting News



I have some exciting news to announce – from issue 163 (May) I will be taking over from Sue Moorcroft as head judge for the Writers’ Forum monthly short story competitions.

I have been providing short story critiques and acting as assistant judge to Sue since May 2010 and it has been a pleasure to work under her guidance. Now it’s time for me to step up and carry on her excellent competition round up column, providing writers with reasons why the top stories were picked and offering insights to other writers to help them reach the same level of success.

From issue 164 (June) I will also be taking over from Sue to write the Workshop Feature – an instructive column showing how to improve aspects of fiction writing.

As you can imagine, stepping into Sue Moorcroft’s shoes is no easy task, but I will do my very best to maintain her high level of professionalism.

Good luck. Sue is a hard act to follow but I'm sure you'll do magnificently well.

Best of luck Lorraine. I'm sure you'll do a great job. My very first critique was from you and it had some really helpful advice.

Lorraine Mace said...

Thank you, both. I'm really looking forward to it.

Sorry to hear Sue is leaving but I have had a critique from you and it was very useful. I took on board what you said and re- wrote my short story and sent it out to another competition. I haven't heard yet but if I get anywhere, I will let you know.

Great news, Lorraine. It sounds demanding, but you've loads of experience.
