My name's John Ravenscroft.
I'm English, far too old, and a freelance writer (fiction & articles).
NB - PLEASE SEE NEW WEBSITE (STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION) HERE
I live in Lincolnshire, UK, with my wife Rose and my dog Kate. No kids. Kids are very scary. I co-edited Cadenza Magazine. I was also involved in the BBC's Get Writing Initiative, and was a Feature Editor with Lincolnshire Pride Magazine.
Here you'll find:
* links to some of my published (or prizewinning) stories / articles
* news of potential markets and current writing competitions
* my new Story Appraisal Service (see menu to the left, 2nd button down)
* my YouTube Videos
* any other odds and ends that happen to capture my attention, like the
Save Our Short Story Campaign
If anything on my website captures your attention, please feel free to send me an email or leave comments in my Guestbook.
