Entry form and Invitation
We are currently posting the winning works from ZineWest 2013 to inspire and guide entrants to ZineWest 2014 (opens in March – details soon)
New works are arriving into our small EZine. They are the winning pieces in the ZineWest 2011 competition. We hope this blog will start a few discussions about writing in 2012. Meanwhile, if you spot any typos/glitches, please comment – revising an index with links can be hazardous:)
Our EZINE Pages have long been attached to NEW Writers’ Group Inc main website but they were static pages, no comments option
This WP blog will house a new index that’s easier to update. You can find the writer or work you’re interested in and make a comment if you wish.
Thanks to WP for making it easier for non-profits like us to have a free carrier pigeon into the world….
