Children's Writers Discussion List

Writing can be a lonely occupation. Why not join our discussion list and use e-mail to get keep in touch with other children's writers aiming for the UK market? We are a very friendly group and always welcome new members.

Powered by groups.yahoo.com

What's involved?
Membership is free and you can leave at any time you like. Your e-mail address is added to the circulation list so you and all the other members receive all the e-mails sent to it. If you want to contribute to the discussion, you can send an e-mail to a central address which will be circulated to everyone else so it's the electronic equivalent of sitting round in a circle chatting.

If you decide to join, you'll receive a welcoming e-mail with more information on taking part in discussions plus hints and tips on netiquette.

Who can join?
Anyone writing or wishing to write for the UK children's market is welcome to join. You don't have to be a published writer - you'll find there's a mixture of published and unpublished writers on the list.

Can I advertise my books on the list?
We prefer not to have straight adverts but you are welcome to mention your books, especially in your signature. In particular, please share your delight with everyone when something is accepted or published.  It cheers us all up.

Will I be flooded with hundreds of  messages?
No. This list usually has fairly light traffic so it shouldn't overfill your mailbox. If you prefer, you can receive a digest edition or read the messages online at the yahoo groups site.

Will you sell my address to bulk mailers?
Absolutely not. I hate junk mail and wouldn't do anything to help it. The list is run on the yahoogroups system. You can see Yahoo's privacy policy here.

Will I receive viruses from the list?
As a safety measure to stop the spread of viruses, we have set the list so no messages can have email attachments.

How do I join?
Just enter your e-mail address in the box and click the button.
