Hello BC Writers,
Today I wanted to sit down and discuss some changes and upgrades to the FBCW communications program. As the FBCW grows, it becomes harder and harder to give individual attention and support to every one of our members, but we are committed to doing just that. We are (re) introducing two ways for our members to ‘get out there’, and get their publications viewed.
The first is the rebirth of the “Launched” section of WordWorks. If you view old issues of WordWorks, like the one linked, you can see exactly what I’m talking about. This is a section near the back of the magazine that lists new titles that any Federation of BC Writers members has written, along with a cover image, ISBN, and a brief summary. This section is meant to feature new titles, published in the past few months. However, we are just introducing it now, so we’ll be accepting titles that have been released in approximately the past year for this very first issue (Fall 2016). If we receive more than we can fit, more recent titles will be given precedence. If you are a writer of plays with a debut performance, or an article in a newspaper that’s particularly enthralling, or other large achievements that don’t necessarily apply, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, to see how we can fit you in–the FBCW strives to support all writers in BC.
To submit, please email a short description or summary (under 200 words is best) and a cover image, along with fill title, ISBN, Publisher (if applicable), date, and price to email@example.com . If you would like to include a link to purchase, it must be at the end of the description, and included in the word count. We look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to!
Now, what about those members who don’t have recent titles published? Well, the FBCW would be happy to post professional reviews of your books or recent writings on this blog, or to consider guest posts from you about issues that are important to both you and writers in BC. We’re also looking into ways we can get our members reviewed by third parties, so please keep an eye on our blog for more information about this.
We’re always looking for more ways to assist you, so if you have any ideas for us, please feel free to let us know!
