It’s episode 48 and today we’re lucky enough to have writer, Patsy Collins on the show. Patsy has loads of experience with long and short fiction and has also just released an excellent book packed full of useful writing advice.
Patsy is the author of four novels; three contemporary romances and one coming of age story with a difference. Hundreds of her short stories have been published in magazines in the UK, Australia, Sweden, Ireland and South Africa.
As well as fiction, Patsy writes articles for Writing Magazine, gives occasional writing workshops and talks, and runs two writing blogs – Womagwriter and Patsy-Collins Blogspot – which include tons of advice on succeeding in the Woman’s magazine market, links to free writing competitions and other useful tips. She co-runs #WritingChat – the weekly writing tweet-up and – as if that wasn’t enough – she has also co-authored ‘From Story Idea to Reader’ a non-fiction book that has loads of help for writers new and experienced.
