Still time to submit your writing to Free Verse Revolution for the January theme -‘Earth’
Dear readers & contributors,
January is proving to be a long month on FVR and so submissions have slowed down.
I still have 6 spaces left for contributing writers and I would love to fill them with your work!
If you are interested please see the guidelines on our submissions page.
The theme is Earth but your poem or prose can be loosely linked, the theme is just a starting point. I accept previously published pieces too!
In the event you have already contributed this month, I would appreciate it if you could share this post. Thank you!

Today, I’m delighted to welcome Esther Chilton to my blog.
While I’m putting the finishing touches to my next short story collection, Esther kindly accepted my invitation to write a guest post. This is a must-read for anyone who is in the process of writing fiction, whether it is for an upcoming book, competition, for publication in a magazine, or as a blog post. Esther gives lots of great writing advice and tips over on her blog.
