The art of letter writing is not dead

I wanted to share a recommendation of my own - a tried and test one.  Ages ago I got a copy of Writing for Magazines by Diana Cambridge and was impressed by its simplicity, layout and straightforward tips.  I read it cover to cover and decided to work from the letter writing section.  I emailed my letter (my first) to Psychologies Magazine over a month ago and forgot all about it.  I'd heard nothing back but I was writing again so I was happy with the outcome.

Then I spotted this yesterday whilst casually flicking through the magazine during a quick lunch break:

Not bad for a first go.  This wasn't a paying gig but then if I wrote for the money I'd have given up a long time ago!
