IWW Members’ Publishing Successes

Internet Writing Workshop members continue to find publishing success in all venues. Congratulations to this week's crew!


Loretta Carrico-Russell

Thank you to all who critiqued this piece. I submitted it to the local daily paper where I live because I received a hate letter threatening to expose my secrets if I ever published another thing in the local paper again when my piece on vultures and recyclers was published. I'm dying to find out what my secrets are!

Peggy Vincent

I just had a piece called “The Lights of Summer,” (seeing fireflies in North Carolina after years of not seeing them here in CA) accepted by Dew on the Kudzu,

Holly Michael posted her review of /The Stasi File/ on her blog today. It's not just favorable but phrased in a creative and fresh way that is sure to catch readers' attention. Check it out and leave a comment if you're so inclined.

My story, “Moving Forward,” has been accepted at Infective Ink for their ‘Secrets Revealed’ theme issue. It's scheduled for March 25.  And they paid me $10.

So I'm $11 richer this morning than I was yesterday....
