Twitter is too bite-size, Instagram predominantly visual, so I’ve been looking for a way of sharing longer, written posts. This is it.

This newsletter has two sections.

S J Watson

This section is free to all (just hit Subscribe, if you haven’t already, and choose Free). I’ll be sending these newsletters out every couple of weeks, and here the focus is on books and reading in general, with an emphasis on my own work. You can expect a mix of news and updates, as well as thoughts and musings about books, writing, narrative, and life in general. Here’s where you’ll also find information about #SJsTwitterBookClub.

To receive updates from S J WATSON direct to your inbox consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.

The Writers’ Lodge

Are you writing fiction, or want to start doing so, or perhaps you’re just fascinated by the process of creating a book? This section is for you. Here we’ll consider different aspects of the process of writing and editing a long piece of fiction, with articles and exercises designed to help the writer establish whether they’re on track or in need of course correction.

Sign up and find the support, guidance and tools you need to push through the writing process (and stay positive when you’re feeling stuck) in an online community that will be your biggest champion from the first word to the last line.
