You will have worked out by now that I’m useless at promoting anything. I was of the generation to whom ‘showing off’ was the worst thing anyone could do, but… deep breath… I’m the Competitions Manager for the Association of Christian Writers (ACW), so I ought to be able to do this.
Anyone fancy trying their hand at a bit of journalism? The ACW Journalism Competition provides a great opportunity to get writing about the issues you care about, and have your piece read by a real journalist. Our judge is Sheila Johnson (JournoJohnson), an experienced journalist. Christian slant optional. For more information, visit http://www.christianwriters.org.uk/competitions You would send your entry to ME at firstname.lastname@example.org . Do give it a go.
What I do know, from being ACW Competitions Manager for three years, is that entering competitions is a great way to get your work out there and read by professionals. An optional critique is also available to ACW Journalism Competition entrants (for an additional £7 fee). Competition managers want to hear from you. They are not going to give you the ‘not right for us’ brush off.
If ever (my Dear Reader is telling me to try saying ‘When’) I have a book to promote, it won’t come naturally, but I shall read my friend, Wendy H Jones’s, book Power Packed Book Marketing. (She is also the author of the DI Shona McKenzie crime series.) I’ll let you into a secret. Wendy created the graphic you see above and wrote the Facebook/Twitter posts for this comp. Thank you very much, Wendy.
