I am thrilled to announce the arrival of a new magazine BY writers and FOR writers! THE LITERARY CITIZEN is a digital magazine published tri-annually to connect members of the writing community, offer tips on genre and craft, showcase local authors, and share what it means to be a member of the literary world.
The idea for THE LITERARY CITIZEN was born after an inspiring talk by Mike Czyniewieski at the Ozarks Writers League conference in November, 2016. He spoke about supporting fellow authors, upcoming writers, and the reading public in a variety of simple steps anyone can take. This concept of being a citizen of the arts community coincided perfectly with an idea I had been developing to offer some kind of newsletter or resource for a largely rural area. And let’s face it…writing is a solitary business. It’s nice to look out and see some fellow workers once in a while!
And so, I developed this magazine to meet a need in my literary community. My writing friends were incredibly gracious in coming up with stellar articles to contribute, and I couldn’t have done it without them.
Be a good citizen… read the current issue for FREE….subscribe to receive future issues in your inbox (also FREE!)…and start doing your bit to support the arts and reading!
