If you have considered writing for the Black Libary (Games Workshop’s publishing arm) then Gav Thorpe has some useful tips for you at his blog.

Black Librayr are one of the few publishers who open advertise for new writers. However the process is quite specific: they want a 250-word sample of your writing. It is this sample writing that Gav addresses.

Gav also has a tip for anyone submitting in the near future:
