This one looks challenging!

I’m the new books editor at the Sunday Times. I’m running a weekly series where we invite authors to contribute 2-300 word pieces around the subject of reading to be published in the books section of the paper. At the moment we are not in a position to offer payment for these pieces but what I can offer for now is the opportunity for writers who submit pieces to record a 10-15 minute podcast which would be included as part of our online content and to which we would direct readers. I know that there are many things that are probably keeping you busy enough as it is at the moment but if you are interested and have something you’d like to contribute we’d be delighted see it.

I look forward to your participation and wish you well for the coming year,

Tymon Smith
