News about MWSA.
Here's an article in the January 3, 2013 New York Times about the experiences of a variety of writers both in the writing of their original works, and then of adapting them for different media. It reveals that even for long-standing professionals, it's not always easy. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/03/movies/awardsseason/writers-rethink-wo...
A new year, change and improvement go together. With the re-launch of Dispatches, we are initiating several changes to guarantee an ongoing publication and to continually improve the overall quality of the articles and photographs.
Dispatches will become a quarterly magazine.
Because our goals for education and the preservation of history are foremost in our thoughts and in MWSA’s mission statement, we have initiated changes to widen our readership.
I'm happy to announce the relaunch of the Dispatches magazine! Pat Avery has agreed to be the editor and past president Joyce Faulkner, who did such a great job with Dispatches in the past, will be the designer. The magazine will be on a quarterly schedule and will have 32 pages. Further details to follow. I urge members who want to have articles in the magazine to contact Pat on this. I want to thank Pat and Joyce for stepping forward on this as Dispatches is an important communications vehicle for the membership. Please give them your support.
I know everyone has been wondering about the fate of our membership magazine, Dispatches. There have been a variety of issues that we've needed to work out. At this point I just want to give everyone a positive heads up that soon we'll see the re-launch of Dispatches. We're working out the details right now. Once everything's in place, you'll see a formal announcement.
