CafeLit 9

A publisher I write for has a site called CafeLit. The site posts a story every day from a wide range of writers. Whether that be a new writer just set out on their writing career or an established writer with writing awards under their belt. So if you’re a new or established writer looking for a place to send your work then try CafeLit

I made it into last year’s collection. The sad thing is this year we may miss out on meeting up for the book launch in December. It’s lovely to meet the other writers face to face over a meal and a glass of wine. Though we all belong to an online Facebook group aka The Clubhouse where we chat, it not the same as meet socially.

    1. It wonderful to be between the covers with other worthy winners too. We have all made the same tough journey of doubt and rejection along the way.
