When I restarted my blog, I said that I wanted to add other writers so that WTTN could become more of an online publication and less of my personal blog. Before I started recruiting writers, I wanted to make sure that this website was in 100% condition. It wasn’t until last month that I put out a call for contributing writers.
That got the ball rolling, and you may have seen the first post not by me published a couple of weeks ago. I also spoke to some people that I am currently working with at Levatio Literary Magazine about coming onto the team to write on a more regular basis. You’re going to meet the first of those people today!
If you’re reading this and wishing you could join as well: good news! We are still looking for a couple more writers to join the team, and we’re always open for pitches and individual submissions. Read our guidelines and then submit!
