LOOKS LIKE FUN!

Dearest writers,

While perusing a listing of recent calls for submission I came across this:
  • Microfiction Monday Magazine Call For Submissions

  • Online submissions accepted year-round.
Microfiction Monday Magazine is seeking exceptional stories told in 100 words or less for publication every Monday. There are no restrictions on genre or content, just punch us in the chest with characters we can feel, images we can't get out of our heads, and stories that are complete despite their brevity. Artwork submissions are also welcome. For more information and how to submit visit microfictionmondaymagazine.com.

How 'bout it?!

October was a good month for Writers' Wings!

Several clients have had their work accepted or published this fall. Submissions were accepted by Edge, the print journal of Tahoe Writers Works, on-line journals IthacaLit, Hippocampus Magazine, and Persimmon Tree, an online magazine that showcases the creativity and talent of women over sixty. 


Well done, you wonderful writers! You know who you are--but soon I will be creating a "client profiles" page where readers can get to know you too.
