Exciting news! Experiments in Fiction is now no longer just your favourite poetry and fiction website 🙂 it is also my own small business. This means I have taken a further step towards my dream of making a living from my writing. Of course, the main reason we write is because we love it, but there are times when we also need to put food on the table. So we either take a day job, and write in our spare time, or try to make a living from our writing. The latter option can certainly seem a bit daunting, but I have devoted so much time to this dream already that for me, the time is right to move on to this next stage!
What does this mean for Experiments in Fiction?
Regular readers need not worry: I hate ads as much as you do, so I will not be adding these to the site. What I am planning to offer from early next year is an exciting range of online poetry courses. These may interest people who wish to know more about the history of poetry in English, or the ‘nuts and bolts’ of poetry (how to write different metres, rhyme schemes, etc). I intend to teach the rules so you can break them. Poetry rebels will be more than welcome!
I’m also working on a Newsletter, with the first edition to be published in January. From that point on, all you will need to do is sign up to find out more about the courses I will offer. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions about the type of content you would like me to include within my courses, leave a comment below or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
