Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

Time on my hands now? Not a bit of it!

After nine years on the committee of Ripon Writers’ Group, three as Secretary, three as Vice Chair and the last three as Chair, tonight’s AGM has finally allowed me to retire to the back benches. This doesn’t mean, of course, that I shall cease to be an active member and I’ll continue to keep the website up to date for the foreseeable future.

A new challenge has already come my way in the shape of an invitation from Erewash Writers to feature in one of their regular competitions. Open to entrants worldwide, it’s for flash fiction and I’ve been allowed to choose the theme – carpe diem with a twist – as well as act as judge.  Full details can be obtained from http://erewashwriterscompetition.weebly.com/2014-flash-fiction-with-maggie-cobbett.html
