Doing It Write

This is the thirteenth year that I've been publishing my weekly newsletter, Doing It Write. It goes out around the world to mostly writers since writing and publishing is the focus of Doing It Write.
It has a standard format. I start with a topic from me. (Recently, I did a six-part series on publishing on Kindle.) There's always a contest for writers and an event or conference. Then there are snippets from an article about writing, followed by two links writers might be interested in.

The newsletter is all text, no pictures. I considered converting it to a magazine format, but when I asked subscribers if they would prefer pictures, every single answer said, no. So, it remains text only.

The reason I'm telling all of you about Doing It Write is to see if any of you would like to guest post in an issue. It would need to be on a topic related to writing, publishing, entering writing contests, etc. Some topic that's writing-related. It would also need to be short, under 300 words. That would allow a little bit of space for me to introduce you.

If you're a writer or in the writing/publishing industry, let me know if you'd like to guest post.  You'd need to write a short post and include a really short bio. Since it's all text, I can't embed links, but I can list them. If you're interested, email me at: mermaidhelATgmailDOTcom.
