The Help Forum

This is the place to ask questions about the Colony itself and how to use it. It’s not the place to ask about getting your book published, there are plenty of other areas for that including Café Life, the Back Room, and of course the various live events we organize including the Writers’ Huddle and Pop-Up Submissions.

What's Happening

Just got a rejection letter from an agent who thanked me for "letting them take a look." This was an agent whose submission guidelines only asked for a query, not any part of the MS.

Even their form rejections are becoming less considerate. >.>
If is official. My daughter has got a place on a degree course for Illustration (without any paper qualifications, having dropped out of school aged 14). I am soooo happy! So both kids starting uni in the UK in September! (Dependent on money being found)
My dreams are being affected by being online so much...white notification boxes are popping up in the corner of whatever I'm dreaming! I go to read them and they disappear, which leaves me wondering what I've missed.
Of interest to writers resident in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset & Wiltshire, the Hall and Woodhouse DLF Writing Prize. Closing date is the 30th March. The DLF Local Writing Prize Submission Form
Dear (but annoying) husband has not been growing his beard for nothing. He's been given a walk on part as a monk in the next Matt Damon film. He will have to have his head shaved, though. Hee hee!
