New Publication: The Complete Writer

Kerrie Flanagan, director of Northern Colorado Writers, announces a new publication for writers, The Complete Writer. The first issue is free, so take a look and see what you think. A twelve-month subscription is $19.95.

The Complete Writer is also an opportunity to see your own articles in print. Submission guidelines are at and are summarized below.

Here's what Kerrie says:

Dear Readers,

Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Complete Writer. For the past five years my passion has been to support and encourage other writers on their journey to pursue their dreams. This e-publication is an extension of that passion.

My hope is that The Complete Writer will nurture not only your mind, but your creative spirit and body as well. Each issue will contain resources, inspirational articles, market news, exercises, and other information to help you become the best writer you can be. It is designed to be enjoyed either online or printed out.

As we enter into this new decade, I anticipate we will see exciting changes in the publishing industry as the Kindle and other e-readers become popular and Social Media becomes the preferred form of communication. As writers we should all stay informed about the industry and the direction it is headed.

Enjoy this first issue,
