Through every season – the Writerly Wisdom Series, by Donna L. Martin

DSC01842Article by Donna L. Martin

A new writer’s series, Writerly Wisdom, began January 2, 2013 on my blog, On the Write Track.

I have been writing professionally for two years now and thought it was time to give back to the writing community in a special way. Hopefully, the link to this series will be on my website as a one-stop resource for new and established writers, providing words of wisdom on all writing topics from why become a writer all the way to promoting your new book.

Here are the scheduled guests throughout the year as well as some available dates still open for any author or established writer who would like to contribute a guest post to this new writer’s series:
