INside On Hiatus What the heck is going on?
By Julie A. Pierce
everybody go? The answer is that we haven't really gone anywhere. In case you
took a recess from your summer occupations to look for a new edition, I'm here
to explain what's up.
We are here at Inkwell Newswatch
(IN), hard at work behind the scenes making improvements, including an
editorship change, bringing aboard new writers, sorting away old content, and
much more. Do not fear. It's only a brief hiatus, and we'll have a new edition
published in the fall.
Currently, we are streamlining, cleaning
up, and reorganizing to improve our support of your writing endeavours and to
help hone your skills and get your writing published. To do that, we need to
make some changes around here, and the only way to accomplish our goals
effectively is to take a temporary publishing hiatus.
You may see
strange things happening while you are here, such as categories moving
around or disappearing, pages appearing and then being deleted, new items being
added, old ones being removed and links to previous parts of archived article
series not functioning. In other words, IN is experiencing
As summer wanes, cooler times arrive, and the
leaves turn in colour, you will find a new edition of IN waiting for
you. The launch of the new edition will be announced through our main site
subscriber list, Writers Site News (WSN).
Have you subscribed to our main site yet? Subscribing is the best way to keep
on top of our events and happenings. WSN also delivers writing information and
tidbits about writing and writing tools. If you are a subscriber, you will know
as soon as the new edition of IN is published. If you haven't already,
you can subscribe
now and you won't miss a beat of the ongoing site developments – plus
it's gratis and comes with gifts. To read over our main site information first,
returns, we'll be coming back with the great columnists that you have come to
know and love, a streamlined system, and a more open door communication policy
in place. We'll also have exemplary interviews on how successful writers got
that way, fantastic articles, up-to-date news and events, plus the educational
information you've come here to find and learn.
During our revamp,
we are also looking for approximately 100 volunteer, experienced writers of all
genres – including fiction, nonfiction, journalism, screen/playwriting, comedy,
Internet, TV/radio, poetry, children's lit, and creative nonfiction – to write
"how-to-write" articles. Contact us and jump aboard the new IN.
We are not a paying market, however if you have something you
would like to get credit for, receive free exposure, gain experience for your
portfolio, and see your work in print, let us know. You can contact me, Julie
Pierce, at firstname.lastname@example.org and
I'll get back to you as soon as humanly possible with more details. Also,

Page to have a better understanding of what we're looking for and
what we offer.
Our archives of past articles, interviews, book
reviews, and educational information remain accessible during the hiatus;
although you may find that they too are changing around a little during our
overhaul. You can access them at http://www.fwointl.com/artman/exec/search.cgi
