Writing is damn hard. And getting into the writing industry is even harder. I’m no expert, by any means, but I figure if it’s hard enough to get into on your own, sharing resources and creating discussion can’t make it any worse.
If I find any competitions, jobs, articles, submission openings, prompts, exercises, advice, wild rumours or ghosts-of-writers-past I’ll be sure to let you know about it.
I come across all this info on my own and find all the details on the web (what I see is what I write, and the links to the source websites are provided in the posts). All the competitions I post about have little to no entry fee, and as writers, I think that’s the way (a-ha a-ha) we like it.
If you want to know more about the origins of ‘little rockets’, you can read my very first post here.
As for me, my name is Kyra Bandte and I’m a writer and reader from NSW, Australia. I work full-time as a content writer in Sydney and graduated from the University of Wollongong with a BA/BCA with Distinction, majoring in English Literature and Creative Writing.
I mostly write prose and poetry, but have dabbled in journalism, copywriting, ghostwriting, and web content. I’ll do pretty much anything I can get my typey little fingers on.
I buy books faster than I can read them, and I like vanilla ice-cream with almonds.
