The PEIWG Weekly 20121028 edition

Welcome to the PEIWG Weekly Bulletin! This is a free service done voluntarily and published and circulated through the PEIWG mailing list.

If you want to see the original document, you may download it from The PEIWG Group on Facebook or from   http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/THEPEIWGWEEKLY/ as a .doc or a .pdf file.

This Weekly contains announcements of events in PEI, around Canada and the rest of the world, that may be of interest to the members of the PEI Writers’ Guild and to PEIWG mailing list subscribers. In all cases, please check out the links to contest and event sites as information is subject to change. Please exercise caution and your best judgment when sending money or information to unknown sources.

If you want to share any announcements, articles, interesting or useful links that you think other subscribers will be interested in, send them to mimrlith@yahoo.com; this weekly is sent out on Sunday or Monday every week, so please do not send announcements that need to be sent out immediately.

If you would rather receive this through a group or access the original files on your own, please join http://ca.groups.yahoo.com/group/THEPEIWGWEEKLY/ ; once you are a member of this group, your email address will be removed from the current mailing list so that you do not receive this newsletter more than once.

All information is arranged in the following sections:

Local PEI and the Maritimes – announcements for events, contests and other news in PEI and the Maritimes, or directed at writers from Atlantic Canada, with the most recent or most prominent at the top of the section; otherwise, these are arranged according to date of occurrence or deadline

Calls for Submission – the most recent calls are put at the top of this section; generally, calls are arranged by date of deadline

Contests and Awards – the most recent contests are put at the top of each month’s  announcements; announcements are arranged according to deadline date, with the nearest deadlines at the top

Events & Workshops – the workshops and events are arranged by date of occurrence; if new events or workshops are added with the same dates as those already on the list, they are added to the top

Resources – this is a list of random resources available to writers; it is by no means comprehensive but generally includes notices sent to the PEIWG or its members with a request for general circulation

Publications – this includes publications for writers that were meant to be shared; when possible, the full e-mail text is included for convenience so that readers of this Weekly do not need to receive more than a single e-mail; because this reading material may not interest everyone, it is always included at the end of the Weekly; links to publication sites are likewise included, for those who wish to visit the websites of the publishers

  1. You could certainly see your expertise in the
    article you write. The arena hopes for even
    more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. Always go after your heart.
