Wordly

Some of you may have noticed a new tab appear on my blog recently.

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by the Deakin Writers Club and Wordly Magazine team and asked to join the production team.

I'm really excited for this opportunity to become more involved at the university and with the writing community here and to get to know some of the ins and outs of publishing and running a student magazine. I get to help with reading submissions for the magazine and the online blog, wear a cool Deakin Writers Club -t-shirt to all of the events, and officially help to represent the writing community at Deakin University.

So, this is awesome and I can't wait to share more about it with you guys.

On an unrelated note, is anyone doing Camp NaNoWriMo, NaPoWriMo, the April A-Z Challenge, or one of the other writerly things that are happening this month? I'm going for Camp NaNo and I've set my word goal for 1000 words a day (total of 30K by the end of the month), but it's just going to be whatever I crank out and not a specific single story.

What are you writing this month?

  1. Very nice. I think it's great that you get to see that side of publishing--it should be a very educational experience, and isn't that what university is all about?

    Other questions: No, no, no, like what? I am not organized for A-Z, I would have to write my posts way too far in advance (Like start now for next year), and I like the Monday/Friday rhythm I sort of have now. Enjoy your t-shirt!

    1. I'm really looking forward to the experience!

      It sounds like participating in one of the April writerly things would cause you much inconvenience! Keep blogging though, and be well :)

  2. The only one of those that I'm doing is the A-to-Z Challenge (this is my second year).

    2. I did, although giving away so much flash fiction was a little painful. I needed the extra practice though. That's why I cut it back to two flash fics per week this year. I'd like to actually sell some stories in the near future.

  4. Great news, Bonnee. Work experience is very important these days. The more work experience you get while being a student, the easier it will be to find a job in your field. And you got your second free t-shirt ..:). I see your Wordly Magazine on Facebook now with a great illustration at the top. I slowly try to finish my third novel, which will be my last. That's my writing till the end of the year. Be well.

    1. University students love getting free things. I'm really glad that I'm getting some work experience, because I know the industry is competitive to get into. Good luck finishing your third novel this year! Thanks for visiting, Giora :)
