Jessica continues to expand our weekly series line up. There are so many great opportunities, it’s hard to keep them all straight. So we’re making it easy for you!

This month we’re adding four series to the schedule:

Oh So Clear by David B. Clear

Oh So Clear features essays on writing by an ex-computer scientist with a passion for cartoons. The essays are always illustrated, sometimes funny, and often insightful. If you’re looking for insights on writing, but have the attention span of a toddler and need occasional cartoons and jokes to pay attention, this series might be for you.

Market Yourself by Cynthia Marinakos

Market Yourself brings ways to share your writing with more readers rather than sit back and wait for them to come to you. Learn powerful, simple, affordable ways to promote your writing. Cynthia is an Australian-based writer and an online communications professional. She’s on a mission to help writers gift more readers with their wonderful words.

The Short of It by Margery Bayne

Everything short fiction, from inspiration to publication. Writing and publishing short stories can be a great way for fiction writers to hone their craft and build a writing resume while being a rewarding creative endeavor by itself. From micro and flash fiction all the way to long-form short stories, this series will cover all the steps along the way — creative and practical — from the beginning writing stages through editing and all the way to publication.

Mean What You Say by Jill Ebstein

Did you ever wonder my some expressions sound dated? Others are so hip that we barely understand them — unless, of course, we are hip. This column explores the use of language through idioms and common sayings. We vary based on individual sensibilities and the times we were raised. The goal is nothing short of using our understanding to build a better bridge of communication — interpersonally and generationally.
