Yes, something like that. Members nominate pieces that they think ought to appear in the next issue of our quarterly e-zine. We collect nominations for a certain period, then there is a public poll for members to select a winner.

Nominated works should be pretty free of SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation) errors if they are to meet the standard for publication.

Should that be June 16th TO September 15th??? Of this year, right? Kind of confused, sorry. Newbie.

Yup. Check the original post date on the piece that you may be considering nominating. If it's anywhere in between the June 16 - September 15 dates (yes, of this year), go ahead and put a link up here to get the votes on it!

You should getting some kind of in-forum prize for winning, like a customised title or something. Would be cool, I think.

This is not the nomination thread, just so you know, however there is a link in the first post that takes you there.

This sounds really interesting; no nominations as of yet (I'd need to read some more) but as far as "entry" rules go, I'm technically published - could an excerpt from my novel still count?

Can't nominate yourself, no. And it would have to be something from the forums, not an excerpt from a self-published novel.

Default e-books and impact on authors

Hey everyone, im currently writing a paper about the impact of ebooks on the literary sector. Im now busy with the impact of ebooks on writers and would like you to tell me if the revolution of the ebook has been and will be positive or negative for writers. I would also like to know if we need to make a distinction between different types of writers or between mainstream, newcomers and the not so famous (without a doubt the biggest group). Thanks a lot!
