Quick links on this page

I update the information on this page during January every year.

The current statistics were last updated in January 2017 and are based on data for 2016.

I do not currently use paid advertising to generate traffic to my site. The vast majority of visits originate from search engines or other websites in the online writing community.

My Website’s Audience

My website is primarily targeted at writers and the global writing community. I provide lots of free writing resources to help writers improve their stories, submit them to competitions and magazines and see them published.

These include:

  • Writing tips and advice
  • Previously published short stories used as case studies to show how tips and advice were used in practice to achieve success
  • Short story magazine lists
  • Writing competition lists
    • Short story competitions
    • Flash fiction competitions
    • Book and novel competitions
    • Poetry competitions
    • Non-fiction and essay competition

I also run an annual humorous writing competition which is growing in popularity every year. It currently offers a £1,000 top prize.
