"I am pleased to report that almost every penny that I have earned through writing is as a result of a lead or idea generated by the magazine. I have more than tripled my 'stake' through articles, letters and fillers, and recently achieved my first fiction success with third prize in a short story competition promoted on the Competitions News page. I have absolutely no hesitation in renewing my subscription as the time arises."
