Every day a few people land on this blog looking for information about Brit Writers. It’s easy to find my posts, as well as the comments made by many readers on the posts and links to other discussions on the internet.
However, since the last post, things have evolved. So here’s a summary (please let me know if any of this is factually incorrect, obviously):
The Brit Writers’ offers include (or have included):
- An annual writing competition, with a fee and a prize.
- A scheme to help people get published, with a fee.
- A scheme to help people set up ‘lucrative’ consultancies to help people get published. For a fee.
- A publishing service, with a fee.
- I am not yet aware of a scheme to help people set up ‘lucrative’ publishing services, for a fee or otherwise.
- An agents and publishers referral service. Initially free, thereafter for a fee.
- A schools programme, with a fee (in some cases – some schools join for free).
- A scheme to help people take part in running the schools programme, for a fee and a percentage of the revenue from the schools.
And in latest news, these things are now all available in the new (bigger) USA market. For a fee.
This has been a public service announcement. You can find more information on the Brit Writers and America Writers websites.
