I have really been enjoying putting the NCW newsletter together these past few months, and I wanted to put out the reminder that the August issue of The Write Stuff will be coming out soon. If you have any personal progress updates, upcoming events, thoughts/prayers, conference or other writing-related reports to share, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm also looking for short fiction or essays, excerpts, or poetry (I can't believe no one has submitted any poetry yet!) for this issue.
We've got some exciting things planned for the August issue, including local writing opportunities and a revamped Member Services section, so I hope you will check it out.
Also coming up soon is the deadline for the current NCW writing contest. A few weeks ago I asked, "What has NCW done for you?" The winning piece, in whatever form you choose to answer that question, will win a $25 Amazon gift card. Deadline is Sunday, August 15th. You can also send those submissions, preferably in the body of the email, to email@example.com.
