New Guest Editor

Hello! I’m delighted to be the new guest editor for the next couple of months. There are certainly big boots to fill. I have been taking notes from past guest editors, who have done a splendid job. Special thanks go to John Rutter, who I pick the guest editor reigns up from, and Emily Oldfield for the brilliant features she posted as guest guest editor last month. Many thanks to LWH team and enormous thanks to the LWH community for entrusting me with this wonderful resource. Please do get in touch if you have something to share. And thank you, in advance, for your support!

There are lots of exciting things to look forward to this autumn. With commissioned pieces from local poets, writers and bloggers, as well as news about writing opportunities, competitions and events. There will be lots going on, so do check in soon to see what’s new.


Sarah Schofield is a freelance writer. Her stories have been published in magazines such as Woman’s Weekly and anthologies including ‘Lemistry’ (CommaPress), Spilling Ink and Back and Beyond Arts Publication. She lives in Lancashire with her one eyed cat.

    Thanks, Jane! Slightly terrified – with so much to live up to from past editors! It really is an honour to be involved.

    Hi Sarah

    Thanks for the compliments which were entirely deserved in Emily’s case. I have another interview and review lined up and I might even submit a bit of writing. If I can help you in any way, let me know. I hope you do lots of short story stuff. Tell me, is it absolutely necessary to have a cat to write?

    Hi John, compliments deserved for both you and Emily. I’ve enjoyed all your posts! Yes – wonderful news on the interview and review. and definitely submit some writing!

    And Yes. For me, a cat is a totally essential part of creative writing (unfortunately cat food cannot be counted as work expenses on tax returns though.)

    Thank you for your support!
