Seeking Reviews and Articles for the July-August issue of Vision: A Resource for Writers.
Vision is an award-winning electronic magazine providing articles and reviews that offer information both new and experienced writers would find helpful. The May-June issue has been posted at the ezine’s new home, Vision, and is chock full of valuable information. It’s time now to think about what you could offer fellow writers in the next issue. We’re interested in articles and reviews of value to writers of all levels. This issue is unthemed, so anything pertaining to writing is welcome.
Think you have nothing to offer? Think again. How do you perform a standard writing task? Have you taken someone else’s method and improved on it? Have you come up with something unique that you’d like to share? Did you discover a technique for improving your dialogue? Did you contact an expert for story research who might be willing to do an interview? Do you have some exercises that help improve specific techniques? There are thousands of ways in which your process differs from other writers, and those still searching for the technique that clicks would love to hear about it.
Is there a resource you go back to frequently for research, because the writing articles are especially informative, or because the market information is up-to-date and reliable? Share your favorites so other writers can benefit. For the July-August issue, we currently need a book review, but are happy to receive additional book, product, or website reviews for this or the next issue.
All submissions should be between 500 and 2000 words, though longer articles may be accepted. Vision pays $0.01 (one cent) per word up to 2000 (up to $20).
We would prefer to receive the articles and reviews for the next issue by June 10th. However, all submissions, whether articles or reviews, will be considered for any open slot regardless of when received, and for future issues if they do not fit in the upcoming one.
The reviews must be for web sites, blogs, products, or books that aid in the process of writing whether through providing world building information, writing techniques, marketing resources, or other writing-oriented information. The review can focus on a single site, product, or book, or provide a comparison of resources available around a specific topic. However, you must not have any affiliation with the resources you review. This is to share resources, not for advertising.
