Are you experiencing problems finishing off the last chapters of your book or can’t get your head around editing? Then here’s an interesting solution. Jojo Moyes the best selling author of Me Before You and After You is offering writers, published or not, the chance to spend a week at her writing cottage in Suffolk without charge. If you’re short of cash she’ll even help with travel costs (UK only). This is what JoJo posted in Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/jojo.moyes/posts/10154345691905944)
Are you a writer, and wish you had some peace in which to write? I know what it meant to me when I was trying to get published. To this end, we are offering our cottage, free of charge, for up to a week to a writer – published or unpublished – to kick-start, or even finish their work. It is fully furnished, welcoming, and set near us in deep countryside on the Suffolk borders. The week must be taken before the end of this year. If you are on a limited income, we can also provide help with travel and food (UK only). (We will even remove the television and turn off the wifi if that helps…) I can’t guarantee I’ll be around, but if I am I’ll be happy to have a coffee and offer any advice I can. Or you can just enjoy not having to speak to anyone at all! To apply, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with no more than 500 words on why this would make a difference to you. All voices welcome. Deadline: 30 September 2016.
Me After You by Jojo Moyes is available here
I personally think this is a very generous offer and if I hadn’t already finished the manuscript of my latest book, Red, Red Wine, due out later this year, I might have applied. Good luck to you if you do.
