A Warm Welcome to CN Writers & Publishers

The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.  ~Anaïs Nin

Who is CNW

Who is Behind CNW

Chipping Norton Writers & Publishers is a new(ish!!) publisher who publishes compendium's of short stories of various genres but CNW does prefer to read and represent writers of horror or ghost stories.

CNW's other arm is writing competitions as mentioned above. Primarily we have at least one competitions running every quarter. This is the seasonal big one where the winner gets a publication in a compendium and also 50% of all the fees entered WOW!! whilst the runner-up gets a publication and  25% of all the fees. We also have a picture prompt competition, amongst others
Chipping Norton Writers is run by Andy Hesford. Andy initially only wanted to create a page to help writers with cheap competitions.

Andy has been writing for several years under the name Dean Hodsfry. Current published books are Five Minute fiction and also is credited with Muses of the writers. Chipping Norton writers also have several books available for sale

Helping CNWAP

Everybody needs a helping hand once in a while, small companies like Chipping Norton Writers do too. That is where you come in. Chipping Norton writers are a not for profit company but we have costs and overheads. Like most of you. So we are looking for donations. More money in the pot equals bigger and better competitions

Why should I Donate?
CNWAP is a not for profit organisation. We require donations for advertising, domain charges and specialist external parties such as cover designers because a book does not sell if the design is rubbish.

What if you are in a profitable situation at the end of the year?
If we are lucky to be in that situation then CNWriters and Publishers will retain up to 50% of the profit for ongoing purchases and administration costs(as mentioned above) and the other 50% we will distribute to local Chipping Norton town charities.
