    Dodo crafts to hatch at home

    By Fleur Clarke

    The One Secret to Being a Good Editor

    By Anne Perry

    The One Secret to Being a Good Editor It’s not what you expect. (It might be.) Yesterday, an editor named Mandy Brett posted a fascinating article about the realities of life as an editor. You can – and should – read the whole thing here. It touches not just on the fun, creative aspects of the job, but some of the darker, more difficult issues that editors face. But there’s one thing she doesn’t mention. It’s the one crazy trick, the single thing banks don’t want you to know, the ultimate secret that editors swear by. The thing that helps us focus, relax, and really dig in to whatever project we’re working on. MORE

    5 Things to Do on your Lunch Break

    By Anne Perry

    5 Things to Do on your Lunch Break
    Lunch! That magical period between the morning and the afternoon. The minutes that separate classes from later classes, work from afternoon work, and the sun being on one side of the sky from the sun being on the other side of the sky. That dream within a dream… Well, you get the picture. Anyway, it’s a little much-needed headspace time. What should you do with it (besides eat your lunch, of course)? (Let’s take as read that you should definitely go for a walk – and you would, if it weren’t totally disgusting outside/you weren’t too busy. You’ll take that walk tomorrow. You really will.) MORE

    INTO THE WOODS Review

    By Naomi Berwin

    INTO THE WOODS Review After months of intense anticipation, last week I saw Into the Woods – at the Impact screen at the Leicester Square Empire, no less (tip: sit at the back, and beware if you’re prone to migraines – the screen is HUGE and the whole experience is pretty intense!). I should start by saying that, yes, Into the Woods is a musical. There’s a lot of singing in it, so if you’re anti-musicals, this probably isn’t the film for you. I, however, am a massive fan, and particularly of Stephen Sondheim, which means that not only was I seriously excited about the prospect of the film adaptation, I was also wary of what they would have done with it, and ready to be very critical.
