To celebrate reaching 10,000 followers, I’m doing a seven-day extravaganza of freebies, giveaways and competitions. Keep watching my tweets to see all of them! For DAY THREE, I have a very special prize and a big announcement for writers…
First up, I have a prize for one published writer (traditional or self-published) and one not-yet-published writer.
For A PUBLISHED WRITER I am offering a free one-hour Skype chat where we can talk about your writing. Whatever you need – whether it’s encouragement, advice, or help – we can cover it during our chat. I want to support authors at all stages of their careers and help you stay in love with your words. However I can help, I will.
For AN UNPUBLISHED WRITER I am offering a free three-chapter critique of the book you are are writing or have completed. I can offer advice on tightening up the prose, creating an opening chapter that will have readers turning the pages to read more and crafting a novel opening that will grab the attention of agents, publishers and readers alike.
To be in with a chance of winning these prizes, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me about yourself and your work – and why you would like to win. The closing date for entries is 30th November 2019.
And here’s my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for everyone: On THURSDAY 7th NOVEMBER I am hosting the very first WriteFoxyLIVE!
WriteFoxyLIVE will be a one-hour Facebook Live event where you can ask any question about writing, editing and publishing. I’ll have lots of encouragement for you and best of all this is totally free! No registration needed, just join me on my FB author page: facebook.com/MirandaDickinsonAuthor. For five years my WriteFoxy events have been loved and enjoyed by writers at all stages of writing, from brand new writers to established authors. It’s a place where you can be encouraged, fall back in love with your words and hang out with fellow wordsmiths. I’ve wanted to make it available to everyone for a long time, so I’m thrilled to be bringing you WriteFoxyLIVE on THURSDAY 7th NOVEMBER, 7.30pm-8.30pm. It’s going to be so much fun!

If you write, regardless of whether you’re published or waiting-to-be published, pursuing passion in what you do is vital to maintain your focus, confidence and tenacity. Lose sight of why you started writing in the first place and it very quickly becomes a heavy chore. That’s why I started WriteFoxy, to reconnect writers of all genres and at all stages of experience with their first love of writing.
My WriteFoxy Writers’ Inspiration Days are designed to make the writers who attend feel like the amazing creative people they truly are. I want people to leave one of my events feeling fired up again, ready to believe that anything is possible with their stories. But I know that by putting a price tag on a writing day it becomes prohibitive for many people. Before I was published, I never attended any writing conferences or retreats, simply because I couldn’t afford them.
So, here’s what I want to do: at both my upcoming WriteFoxy events (1st November and 7th February), I will be offering one free place for a writer to come to the day as my guest. I want to invest in someone’s writing by giving them a day of inspiration and the chance to meet and chat with bestselling authors and fellow writers, to really boost and encourage their own work.
If you would like to be considered for a Guest Invitation, email me at email@example.com and tell me why you would like to come. Please ensure you are available on the dates above and able to travel to Dudley, West Midlands – there will be a donation towards your travel but you must be able to travel in the first place. Please email me by midnight on 25th October at the latest.
And by the way, tickets are still available for the two events if you can afford one: WriteFoxy November and WriteFoxy February. I look forward to seeing you there!
