One Reason I’m a Fangirl of Writer Unboxed

Writer Unboxed founders, Therese Walsh and Kathleen Bolton, are not the sort to rest on their laurels, which is one of the reasons I heart them. They’ve begun a new initiative, and since you’re probably here because you love writing and/ or books, it might interest you.

Beginning in March, WU is putting out a monthly newsletter with content exclusive to that format.

If you’re a writer, you’ll find columns by Donald Maass on craft, Chuck Sambuchino on getting an agent, and Victoria Mixon on editing issues, among others.

Vaughn Roycroft has taken on the role of community roundup-er, gathering the best blog posts written by the WU Facebook members in the preceding month. (If you’re not yet part of that supportive place and want to join, and have your blog posts be eligible for inclusion, go here.)

If you’re a reader, the newsletter will have short articles written by guest authors. This month? NYT-bestseller Diana Gabaldon on the book that changed her life.

I’m thrilled to be part of the initiative with a role which indulges my congenital nosiness. I’ll be conducting short Q & A’s with authors and industry people, beginning with mystery author, Alice Loweecey.

Ready to give it a try? Follow this link, enter your email, and you’re done. If you’re inclined to spread the world, we’d appreciate it.

I’ll be back later this week with a regular post, me Zesties. Hope you are well.
