Now, some announcements:
· Good News/Bad News - Well, the good news is that we are back! May was a very busy month for us and now we are back stronger and better than ever. Seems that this thing called LIFE interfered with WritingRaw this month - what with Weeb being in a play (Play On! with the White River Valley Players) and all. But that's all behind him now (until July, when he will be part of the Chandler production of Boys in the Band… we think he's infected with the acting bug. Doctors have been notified.) so now he can devote his time back to his first and true love - WritingRaw…. Now, the BAD news… After much thought and consideration, WritingRaw is going back to every 2 weeks. There is a positive side to this - longer exposure for the pieces on the site. The reason we are doing this has nothing to do with product or material, it just has to do with time. We tried the experiment and realized that it would work out best for everyone if we went back to 2 weeks, but still sticking to those Mondays.
· Full-Length Play - In this issue, WritingRaw is proud to present a full-length play by Mattie Lennon called: And All His Songs Were Sad.
· How to Use the Wall - Let everyone know how you feel about a particular piece on WritingRaw. This is YOUR space to give feedback, recommendations, or just self-promote something that you want to bring further interest too.
· Calling for all artists – If you would like your artwork showcased on WritingRaw.com – please send 5 pictures, along with a short bio (hot links and other information accepted) to Weeb at firstname.lastname@example.org
