Thank you everyone for the support. I do appreciate it and it helps to keep Positive Words magazine in print and provide an opportunity for so many writers to see their work in print.

Two days to go…

Just two days left to mail your entries in the Positive Words Short Story & Poetry Competition 2020!

Thank you everyone for all the support. I hope there are lots of you re-igniting, beginning or having more time to focus on your writing while we spend our time in social isolation. It’s a great way to connect with others, in a different but very satisfying way πŸ™‚

Thank you everyone for the support πŸ™‚

As I write this, the social isolation restrictions have only been in place for a short time but already several people have contacted me saying how much they miss their writing groups. Me, too 😦  We are emailing and phoning to try and keep in touch and I’ve continued to email our β€˜lesson/homework’ sheets out so we stay inspired.

Some years ago I offered weekly lesson sheets/prompts in exchange for unused stamps (to help with the postage costs each month for the magazine) and many people enjoyed them. If anyone missing their writing group inspiration would like me to start this again, I can offer a weekly sheet via email or snail-mailed with ideas and exercises – one postage stamp ($1.10) per sheet or the equivalent (direct deposit etc).

Despite having much more time to write now, often we need that extra encouragement or incentive so please contact me if you would like to be a part of this. Email – positivewordsmagazine@live.com.au or snail mail – Sandra James, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523 Victoria.
