As we mentioned a couple weeks ago, we have re-launched the ShopNotes blog. We've been posting our butts off and having a ball. The only thing missing is... you!
Stop by and take a peek at all the posts we have for you. Be sure to leave a comment for the authors; they're writers just like you and want to know you're out there.
Here's a taste:
Sunday Sit-Down Dinner: Essays by RJ Robertson, "A Writer's Mission," and Hudson McCann, "The Value of Notebooks."
Mentor Monday: Language and the Evolution of Grammar by RJ Robertson
Tuesday Reviews: The moves Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Cowboys and Aliens
The Interview Studio: A Conversation with Tina Holland
Thursday 13: Contributions by Marge Coleman and A. Catherine Noon
Friday Flash Focus: Stories by Prompt Group members James Kelher and Mark Hudson
Silly Saturday: This Cat Betrayed His Girlfriend, and The God of Cake
Put on your thinking caps and your writing pith helmets, and get your submissions ready! We are actively looking for content. Check out the blog for more details on what we need and where to send it.
We have been hard at work, behind the scenes, learning TweetDeck and how to participate in the Tweetosphere. If you're a Tweep, please follow @evanstonwriters. We will post daily quotes and periodic writing prompts; if you have ideas for submissions, please send 'em in.
Our two question short interview feature is up and running with our first interviewee, Tina Holland. It's a good way to get familiar with our authors, especially if you can't take time out during the week to read the whole interview. Visit Facebook today and click the "Like" button for our page.
I've also posted one of our special events and plan to do that once a week to highlight what's coming up.
I need more stringers for the Facebook stream; if you're interested in becoming involved, please email me.
Comments? Suggestions? Feedback? Shout out; we're listening, and we want your input!
