  1. Thanks Womag for adding my cradsue info to your blog. I think we need as many people to call for fiction to return in women’s mags as we can get, whether writers or readers! If we can get enough members to join the Bring Back Fiction in Women’s mags group in face book then the magazine editors might take note!Julie xx
