Our SWWJ Membership Scretary Wendy Hughes is once again welcoming members to A SPECIAL DAY FOR JOURNALISTS AND NON-FICTION WRITERS TO BE HELD FROM 11.00 TO 16.00 ON TUESDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2010 AT THE WRITERS’ HOUSE, 13 HAYDON ST. LONDON. EC3N 1DB (Tower Hill Tube)

* This fourth day for Journalists and Non-Fiction Writers is designed for beginners as well as more experienced non-fiction writers. A factfile on marketing, and developing those ideas, will be handed out on the day. In this workshop Wendy will cover:

* Markets and pitching ideas - would each delegate attending this day PLEASE bring along at least one magazine, or details of a publisher that you write for or wish to write for and be prepares to talk - for about five minutes on your chosen market - the type of material this publisher or magazine publishers.

* Developing your ideas for a feature or a non-fiction book – You have a great idea, but what do you do with it? We all have different methods of developing an idea, so after a short introduction from me, over to you to share your methods. A chance to learn from one another.

* Problem sharing Forum – The session at the last day went well, so please come along with a problem or a query to share and between us we SHOULD come up with some suggestions. Rest assured that NO problem is too trivial, as we are all at different stages with our writing. We ALL had to learn how to layout a manuscript, submit a query once!

The cost of the day is £18.50 per person. (Cheque made payable to SWWJ). Please bring a packed lunch and pen and paper. Further information can be obtained from Wendy email: or telephone 01903 785771
