I’ve Landed A Job As A Magazine Editor… I’m Looking For Writers For Paid Work!! #amwriting #writerslife

If you’ve been connected with me for a while, you’ll know how much I believe in The Universe, fate and how us humans are supported by some unknown force. Earlier this month I said to myself, (and Didi) for that matter, how much I’d love to get back into magazine writing. I miss it,I used to contribute a few articles to a book, beauty and fashion section a while back. I also wrote about this kinda dream you could say, in my own journal this month.

Over the last twenty four hours the opportunity found me! The founder of the magazine was looking for an editor to take over, he connected with me on Facebook. What a surprise to land not only  paid writing work outside of blogging and novel writing ,but to be asked to be the actual chief editor. Madness… I can’t believe it myself, anyway, I signed a contact and I’m about to launch this baby with a team of warriors and talented writers! See the flyer below if you are interested get in contact.

The only thing I ask is be yourself, but be damn good when writing work to submit for publication. I’ve renamed the magazine, and I plan on moving it in a new direction for a new bigger, more diverse readership.

Details: Conscious Talk Magazine will launch its first online edition in August 2017. Conscious Talk Magazine is a proud online multi-cultural and diverse global magazine, covering a range of topics. There is something for everyone. Readers will find interesting thought provoking articles, from health and well being , fashion and beauty, bookish news and reviews, sex and relationships, men’s issues, finance,  travel, music, LGBT, film and entertainment to name  just a few. We’ll  have a team of talented and diverse writers from all corners of the globe, and walks of life, here to entertain, support and empower our reader’s mind, body and soul.  Conscious Talk Magazine is neutral and does not lean to one side politically, religiously or socially.  Conscious Talk Magazine is published twice a month on the 15th and 30th of each month.

Readership Target: 25-50 years old, male and female, globally situated. Conscious intelligent readers not after Hollywood gossip!

And there you have it… my vision as editor. If it sounds like your thing as a writer to get involved with see below.

Character Development- Guest Blog

Are you a writer? Or an aspiring writer? How do you find character development as a task while writing? Sometimes it can be quite a task to bring your characters alive on paper. For me as a reader I always love it when writers really develop their  characters  so well,  I can get a good sense of what a character is like  as a person. Or I have enough detail in the story to work with, to decide whether I like a character or not. 

I personally find that writing from a first person point of view ( which I love to do) also helps with character development, as you get right up and close to a character as the writer and reader. 

I done a guest blog on the topic of character development over at Serious Reading.  Here I share my top tips on developing  your characters  in your writing, you can have a read of the blog post by clicking here.

Magazine Publication: Heartwarming Fiction

Often, when I feel like reading a  heartwarming  feel good story 9 times out of 10 I’ll think  of browsing the  romance genre, sometimes I fancy a feel good heartwarming read that’s outside of this genre completely. Do you feel the same? Or not a romance fan?

Published in Love Live Life Magazine  you’ll find my article with a review on a handful of beautiful heartwarming reads, I’ve read outside the romance genre. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry but they all leave you with a feel good vibe and a warm soul. Check out my article in Love Life Live Magazine by clicking here.
