We've got advice for writers from Colum McCann, the best in modern crime and romance - and the launch of our new Picture Book Prize!

In the August issue of Writing Magazine, we look at Writing for the Modern World, with an inspirational interview with our cover star, crime writer AA Dhand, and advice on writing 21st-century romance with novelist Fiona Harper. In Dear Writer..., Colum McCann, author of the National Book Award-winning Let the Great World Spin, offers no-nonsense advice to writers. You can read more of Colum's advice, this time on how to get an agent, here on our website.

And... we've launched a fantastic new competition for children's writers, our exclusive Picture Book Prize! In association with author Amy Sparkes and literary agent Julia Churchill, the competition is for original, unpublished picture books and the prize is an exclusive consultation with Julia Churchill. It's a wonderful opportunity to get your picture book noticed by a top author and agent - and entry is free!

The August issue of WM is in the shops now, or you can get it in print and digital editions here.
