Philippa Johnston, Information Manager 
Online jobs, opportunities and events directory and e-bulletin, one-to-one information and advice service (for all writers, especially website and bulletin queries). 


Submissions Information

Please email Philippa Johnston if you have an event or opportunity you would like to appear on The Writer's Compass website and bulletin. We focus on information that has a creative writing professional development element and are happy to receive details of training, conferences, competitions and submissions, funding opportunities, and of course jobs.

When sending event/opportunity information please include:
  • The title you would like us to use (or we will make up our own!)
  • Start and finish dates, or a deadline if relevant i.e. for a job, competition, submission etc. 
  • Location
  • Price
  • Short summary text (this appears in the bulletin)
  • Fuller description (this appears in the website listing under the summary text)
  • Any restrictions (age, gender, geographic etc.) if a job or competition
  • Booking/application information – a URL to a webpage is ideal
  • Contact details
  • Valid web link/links
  • An image - your logo, or other accompanying image. Portrait style suits our template best.  


Our e-bulletin is sent out every fortnight to over 1400 members. As a rule, it is sent on a Wednesday morning - the deadline for submissions is end of play on the Monday. Normally your item will appear in that week's bulletin. It will appear once as the purpose of our bulletin is to highlight new material on the site.  However if you would like your item to appear again then do let us know - we won't automatically feature it more than once, although it will remain on the website until the day after the deadline or finish date.  

If you have submitted an item and it hasn't appeared on the site or the bulletin then get in touch.

We occasionally change the schedule to accommodate holidays - this will be announced in the bulletin.

**Please do not send your competition entries or submissions directly to us - refer to the entry details on the individual item**
