Welcome New Writers!
Tell us about yourself and your writing
Here it is! Writers Challenge first ever Welcome Aboard post. I hope it makes you as excited as it makes me and it should. YOU are the very first writers to join Writers Challenge and the very first people who can tell your story to the rest of us. So let me be the first to say Welcome ;)
Who are we?
In no particular order, please join me in welcoming our new writers and members.
Jane Grows Garden Rooms (Jane Frost) Jane Grows Garden Rooms (Jane Frost) Jane is passionate about Australian native plants, gardening, biodiversity, food forests , nature and the Arts. Also — owner/editor of Tea with Mother Nature.
Why are we here?
I created this publication as a place where writers can support each other, share our writing knowledge to help each other grow, inspire each other through our posts and articles and have a little fun together with writing challenges.
Since we’re here to support each other, may I please suggest that we all follow each other. What better way to get to know each other by reading what we write and building bridges of communication together.
Although I’ve linked to your about pages, I’d love for you to share a post about yourself, your writing, your challenges, and what you would like to explore and learn here. Since we’re just getting started, YOU and I can build this publication together, choose where we go and what topics we cover.
I’m also looking forward to joining in writing challenges with you. The October challenge is already posted and there are only a few days left, so go ahead and give it a whirl.
Let’s get the words flowing
Although it’s always wonderful to read something new, since we’re still getting to know each other, please feel free to share any of your previously published articles with the publication. You can share these in full or in short form (150 words or less) with a link back to your original.
Finally, thank you for joining Writers Challenge. I’m looking forward to our journey together.
