A Writer On Writing: Work Your Way Magazine

Sally Jenkins brings details of a new magazine aimed at freelance, self-employed and entrepreneurial mums.

The launch issue of Work Your Way Magazine dropped through my letter box recently. It’s a quarterly magazine aimed at freelance, self-employed and entrepreneurial mums – categories that lots of us writers fall into. http://www.workyourway.co.uk/

In her first ‘Letter from the Editor’, Mary Cummings describes the magazine as a ‘celebration of all you fabulous mums who have split the nine to five office scene and are now working from home’.

Mary has used a variety of freelance contributors (I know because I am one!) to source the wide range of features in the magazine. The areas covered include:

•Family - features on Raising Confident Kids, Parenting a Child with Special Needs and A Day in the Life of a Freelance Mum.

•Work - features on Coaching To Help You Move Forward, Good Customer Care and an interview with Carol Savage of mydish.co.uk, who secured a £100,000 investment from Deborah Meaden on Dragon’s Den.

•Top Tips - features on How Much Should I Charge?, Blog for Business (that’s me!) and Cash in Your Bookcase.

•Health and Well-being – features on A Good Night’s Sleep, What to Avoid When Working from Home and Yoga.

The magazine also has a flourishing website which is currently asking for online contributions. Click here for details. http://www.workyourway.co.uk/

Work Your Way features in Writing Magazine this month (October 2011 issue) as a case study for Elaine Everest’s article How to Set Up a Start-up. In it Mary describes how she got the magazine off the ground. http://www.thewriteplace.org.uk/page21.htm
