– Rod Costner on Blogging for Writers
As well as hundreds of features in print and online, for titles ranging from The Caterer to Classical Music, I am also the author of three non-fiction books and countless blog articles over the years.
I am a member of the Society of Authors and my literary agent for non-fiction books is Charlotte Howard at Fox & Howard.
I was commissioned to write a number of ‘how to’ manuals: Blogging for Creatives (2012), Blogging for Writers (2014) and The Golden Rules of Blogging and When to Break Them (2015). All were published by Ilex Press, now an imprint of Octopus Books (Hachette).
I’ve recently started writing fiction and am seeking representation for my first novel, a historical mystery set in the 14th century between the plague years and the Peasants’ Revolt.
I’ve self-published two ebooks on how to use Twitter, and a print manual A guide to getting published in UK poetry magazines, (Telltale Press 2018) which went to a second edition and is now sold out.
I have also produced a limited edition illustrated poetry micro-pamphlet Foot Wear, which I designed, made and bound myself.
My poetry pamphlets are The Great Vowel Shift (Telltale, 2015), All the Relevant Gods (Cinnamon Press 2018) and Why? And other questions (Live Canon, 2019)
Well over a hundred of my poems have been published in literary journals and many appear in anthologies. There is a full list here on my dedicated poetry website.
