Un casino en ligne est un excellent moyen de profiter d’une variété de jeux avec un risque minimal. Contrairement aux casinos physiques, ces jeux sont exploités par des programmes informatiques et il n’y a pas d’interaction humaine impliquée. Les joueurs peuvent pratiquer leurs compétences avant de jouer avec de l’argent réel. Il est important de choisir un site de bonne réputation afin que vous puissiez être sûr que vous ne perdez pas d’argent. Cet article explore les différents types de casinos en ligne et comment ils diffèrent les uns des autres. Pour plus d’informations, lisez sur.

Pour trouver le meilleur casino en ligne, lisez d’abord la section de révision. Cette section devrait inclure des examens des casinos en ligne et de leurs processus d’assurance qualité. Il est important de connaître la qualité d’un casino en ligne. Assurez-vous qu’ils adhèrent aux normes de jeu équitables et ont la plate-forme la plus moderne disponible. S’ils ne le font pas, regardez ailleurs. Certains casinos en ligne n’offrent pas de service à la clientèle. Contactez le service clientèle et demandez-leur si elles peuvent faire un meilleur travail. Vous pouvez également découvrir des promotions et d’autres informations.

Meet Stacey Thomas, our Clare Mackintosh Novel-Writing Scholar

by Katie Smart Author Interviews, Course News, From Our Students

We’re pleased to announce that Stacey Thomas has been awarded the Clare Mackintosh Scholarship for Black Writers for her novel-in-progress The Revels. Stacey has won a fully funded place on our Writing Your Novel – Six Months course taught by Simon Wroe and Cathi Unsworth. Stacey will also receive a bespoke mentoring package created by Clare.

At CBC we were transported back in time by Stacey’s gripping narrative. Her novel-in-progress takes place in the 1600s, during the witch trials, and is a tale of accusation, stolen identity and war. We’re thrilled to have her on board for our current online course and can’t wait to find out more about the novel she’s working on . . .

Please could you tell us a bit about yourself and your novel-in-progress The Revels? 

I’m a civil servant and a staff reviewer for Bad Form Review. I’ve always been fascinated by the English witch trials and having read Ronald Bassett’s Witchfinder General I was inspired to write my own interpretation on how the events originally unfolded. Set against the backdrop of the English Civil War, The Revels follows a Tom Ripleyesque character who assumes another man’s identity before apprenticing himself to a witch-hunter judge.  

What does winning this scholarship place mean to you?  

I’m still in a state of shock that I’ve won, and I don’t think it will sink into until I’ve started the ‘Writing Your Novel’ course. As a long-time admirer of Clare Mackintosh’s novels, I’m thrilled by the opportunity to be mentored by her. Overall, I’m honoured to have been chosen as the winner and excited by the chance to shape my story into something I hope people will enjoy reading.  

The CBC team are hugely grateful to Clare Mackintosh for her support of our Breakthrough Writers’ Programme, an initiative designed to break down barriers to entry for under-represented writers, through this scholarship.

We are dedicated to finding talented writers and helping them get the best out of their novels. It’s very important for us to support writers who would not otherwise have been able to take our courses by offering scholarship opportunities, and we are absolutely delighted that five of our previous scholars have already gone on to get book deals, including Kirsty Capes (her dark and funny feminist debut Careless is set to be published by Orion) and Elizabeth Lee (her bewitching debut Cunning Women is to be published by Cornerstone). Both novels will be out in spring 2021.
