In my previous “day job,” my supervisor, who’d taken a close look at my website and resources for writers, asked me to create an office newsletter. Thereafter, I’d distinguish between “The Practicing Writer” and “Academically Speaking” (the newsletter I produced for that office) by saying that “The Practicing Writer” was a true labor of love (and literary citizenship) whereas “Academically Speaking”–my affection for it notwithstanding–was a newsletter I was actually paid to write, edit, and distribute.
I’m no longer in charge of “Academically Speaking,” but as of yesterday, I’m coordinating a new newsletter in town, and again, I’m actually getting paid to do it: the newsletter for Fig Tree Books.
That’s right, our first company newsletter went out yesterday afternoon. Please take a look and let me know what you think. (This newsletter also represents the beginning of my working relationship with MailChimp, so I’ll be especially grateful for any special tips any of you may have for making the most of that service.)
And if you want to do me a super-special favor, please subscribe! Thank you!
