Join forces and keep IN developing and expanding to fulfill your writing needs.
T
he Freelance Writing Organization - International and Inkwell Newswatch (IN) are involved in a few system upgrades. We all need to join forces to make them a reality.

Every once in a while we ask you to become specifically involved in the hopes that we can raise sufficient cash flow that allows us to keep our site expanding, our systems updated, and our services and resources free.

We want to thank those of you who have already contributed -- your financial support enables us to continue offering exemplary writing resources at no charge.

To those of you who have not contributed in the past we do not come to you empty-handed. In return for your financial assistance we do offer incentives:

For a $20 Silver Voluntary Contribution we supply you with a nifty and unique writer's add-in calculator for your Microsoft Windows desktop that automatically calculates what you should charge for any given piece of written work, plus a contributor's graphic. It took only a few seconds to calculate that at 10 cents/word this whole page would have cost $41.10 to write. How long does it take you to calculate this? 

$20.00 Silver Voluntary Contribution

For a $35 Gold Voluntary Contribution we provide you with all of the above, plus a special MS Windows Anagram Software Generator and access to over 80,000 free, downloadable eBooks for your reading pleasure.

$35.00 Gold Voluntary Contribution

For a $50 Platinum Voluntary Contribution we provide you with all of the above, plus, for a limited time (Jun 30th, 2007 deadline) you will receive an IN banner ad space located at the top of one of our high traffic articles (ad value $150).

$50.00 Platinum Voluntary Contribution

In other words, for $50.00 we provide you with the whole shebang! A nifty desktop writer's add-in calculator, a contributor's graphic, an Anagram Software Generator, over 80,000 free, downloadable eBooks, plus, an IN banner ad space! (Don't miss out on this limited space and time offer!)

In this age of paid monthly subscriptions and pay-per-use resources, please do your part and financially contribute to keep this site operational and up-to-date with the resources and information needed to augment your writing career.

And of course, buying advertising space in our publication is a perfect combination of providing financial support and receiving targeted exposure for your writing products and services.

Have a great month!

P.S. We've added some free banner graphics to our IN banner area. Grab one for your site.

Traffic Swarm For Writers


Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

Poetry
The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

Pegasus
It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

Re-Verse
The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
