NEW – Collections as e-Books

Some CUT writer members have asked if they could load collections to the site…….well now you can! Many thanks to Brindley Hallam Dennis for allowing us to use A Feast of Flash Fictions for prototyping – it’s available now. We have set up a specific category for Collections, and are looking forward to receiving more submissions soon. Simply upload as usual, as a single Word document. Remember - we can publish work already published elsewhere, as long as you have retained the right to do so.

The Plight of Writers

Gill’s Musings

The CUT team really enjoy Gill James’ variety of musings, which she posts regularly on her CUT Writer Profile Page (WPP). Posting on your WPP is a fantastic way to air your thoughts, start a debate, or simply get something off your chest. And it’s also a great way to promote your work, as it gets you ‘front of house’ onto the CUT Home page!
