More About the Author

Living and writing in North Yorkshire, I contribute short stories, articles and reviews to local and national publications. Competition successes include twice winning a free place at the Writers' Summer School in Swanwick - First Prizes for Poetry in 2006 and Children's Writing in 2008.

In 2013, I brought out a series of e-Books; three collections of short stories. They are now available as an omnibus edition and also in print.

My handy guide to 'filler' writing is new for 2014 and can be downloaded or purchased as a paperback.

Stories of mine are also included in two anthologies currently available from Amazon:

York Tales (The G.P.'s Tale)

Migration Stories (Not Wanted)

After writing, my main passion is salsa (dancing, not the sauce).

I can be contacted through my website www.maggiecobbett.co.uk

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy and Helpful 18 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If the author is to be believed, then writing fillers for magazines is easy - earning contributors 'easy money'. I for one believe her - Maggie's able to not only share tips and offer advice, she also supports her ideas with the written evidence of her own successes.

This short book is ideal for anyone who needs a nudge in the right direction. One tip is always to have a camera handy. I've already been converted to that idea - barely a day passes without me taking a snap of something either mildly amusing or irreverent. But what to do with that image? Now I know!

Updated: I'm expecting my first cheque any day - £25 for the publication of a silly holiday snap!

5.0 out of 5 stars And fun too 10 May 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an easy read and will set your mind buzzing with lots of ideas generated by everyday life and observation.
The author uses her successful fillers to show the reader how varied the opportunities are. You will never look at a magazine in the same way again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful little book 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Writing fillers is a great way to bring in a few extra quid, whether you're a full time writer or a weekend scribbler. This book gives plenty of ideas and ways to go about finding the markets. There are lots of examples of the author's own published fillers. As you read through you find yourself thinking of snippets and items you could send in yourself - it definitely inspires!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderfully useful book! 9 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book that you can read quickly - and then get on with making use of the many, many helpful tips and advice. The author never 'preaches' about what you should or should not be doing, but rather shares the benefit of her extensive advice and experience. I suspect that if you once follow up on her tips, and get something published, you'll be hooked for ever!
The advice is clear and straightforward; it's up to you what you do with it.
Very worthwhile.

By Sandy

If you want a book about writing letters and sending pics to the letters pages of magazines, this book is fine and full of inspiration, but you probably won't make much money, since the majority of magazines that used to pay out quite a lot for letters and readers pics, have cut costs. Many now only pay for the 'best' contribution (e.g. star letter/winning pic) in each category.

Incidentally, Full House magazine went out of print in the spring of 2013 - almost a year before this was published. The author suggests that you write to them. Good luck with that! I did expect something a bit more than fillers for letters pages, but it's nicely written and upbeat style, so if that's what you want, it's fine. Cheap and cheerful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy Money for Writers and Wannabes 13 Sept. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A little thin on content - really more suited as an article or section in a larger, writers' publication. It is padded out with a lot of the author's personal information. Entertaining but a bit disappointing otherwise.
