The WNRC E-Zine is going to print!
Starting with the August 30th, 2005 issue the ezine is now available in a printed version as well as online.
Please be advised that all submissions for the e-zine will be considered for both.
Please read these fully before submitting, paying special attention to the different mailboxes used for each section. We apologize for any confusion the setup might cause, but right now there are only two of us and this makes it much easier for us to track. Also, beginning with the March 2005 issue we will be changing our e-zine from a monthly format to quarterly, publishing in March, June, September, and December. Thanks!!
Please note that beginning on May 1st, 2005 all payments will be made by paypal only. Please include your PayPal information along with your submission so you can be paid in a timely manner. Thank you for your support
Writer's Nook and Reader's Corner is a monthly ezine providing between five and ten new f iction stories each month. In addition we have a variety of non-fiction articles and poems included in each issue. We will be updating the ezine section on the 30th of each month, or as close to it as possible. Beginning with the January 2005 issue, we will start paying for ezine stories at the rate of $5 per story, and ezine poetry at the rate of $2 per story. It isn't much, but hey, we like to eat too.
Rest assured, that as we grow so will the price we pay our authors.
Please don't include any graphic pornographic material. While vulgar language shouldn't be littered throughout the text, we will not dismiss a story with this language if it is used sparingly and gives a characterization that wouldn't be the same without it. We're also not interested in stories that have excessive violence without justification. Again, if the story wouldn't be the same without it, we'll consider it. Just please remember we hope to have a diverse audience.
We are also interested in other submissions for the rest of the site, including shorter fiction, poetry, book reviews, interviews with authors, and news articles. We do not offer payment for any of the submissions except for ezine stories and poetry accepted for use at this time. This section of the site will be updated monthly, except for news articles, which will be posted as soon as possible, and all submissions for these areas will be posted unless they contain offensive material.
We accept submissions by email only at this time. Please either include your story in the body of the email, or include it as a Word attachment. For suggestions on styles, such as bold, italics, etc, please use <XXXX> and </XXXX> at the beginning and end of the section. For example, "I want this bold and this in italics" would become "I want <bold>this</bold> and <italics>this</italics> in italics."
