Help and Advice

I worked for a time as a Royal Literary Fund Fellow in a University.


I saw lots of students who needed help with punctuation, grammar or those confusing little English words.


I explained it as best I could but I could see their eyes glazing over. My own eyes were glazing over. It's stuff you need to know, but it's not very fascinating.


It occurred to me that was what needed was somewhere on-line where students could go to read through this advice as and when they needed it -- until it stuck.


So I came up with these advice pages. It seemed a shame to junk them when my RLF Fellowship ended, so here they are -- and if they help anyone, I'm delighted.


There are also, in this section, articles on how to get published, on publishing poetry and how to beat writers' block.
