Well things are happening so quickly around here, I thought I would take a sometime to tell you about exciting things going on here at EWR. We are making some big changes, and they are happening quickly, so here we go.
First we are running our horror stories contest. We will give the winner the front page of EWR, and we have already had some great submissions: see them here.
If you want to enter the contest simply email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org and make the subject line Horror Contest. We are still taking regular submissions (remember all submissions are 500 words or less). Make ’em scary.
We are also now accepting artwork submissions! We have some amazing art in our in box already, but we are very excited to see it up featured on our site and beside some of the stories and poetry around the site. Dana Loberg was our first artist featured. Her work is wonderful. If you want to submit art to us see the guidelines here.
We are also taking literary magazines submissions of course. Keep them coming!
We are working on a complete site redesign! It’s so exciting, but in the next few months we hope you will see an all new and amazing EWR.
Lastly, we are doing our best to stay on the web, and you know, as I’ve said many times, I hate doing this, but we are asking for your DONATIONS again, just trying to keep the site up and running.
We got a lot going on here, so keep checking back, we hope to see you on our Twitter, Facebook, our Message Boards very soon!
