NORTH CAROLINA—Welcome to the new website of the North Carolina Writers’ Network! Things are grouped a little differently now than they were on our old site, so here are a few tips to help you get oriented:
At the top of the page is a menu bar. If you’re looking for any information about the Network, including contact info, it’s under “About Us.”
If you’re looking for information about conferences, competitions, or hunting for our events calendar, that’s under “Programs and Services.”
Hats Off!, Book Buzz, and other sections that showcase our members are under “Our Members.”
And if you’re a member of NCWN, you can sign in and then access the “Members Only” section, which includes “Opportunities” and contacts for “Literary Agents and Editors.” But you must be a current member, and you must sign in, to access this section.
A bit farther down the right-hand side of the page is a menu of links. In redesigning our site, we decided there are other organizations who keep much better databases of things like funding opportunities, literary magazines, and publishers than we ever could. So most of these menu items link to trustworthy, outside sites. Enjoy!
Another major change is that, in order to submit your news to Hats Off! or Book Buzz, or submit an event for an inclusion in our events calendar, there’s no longer any need to e-mail us. Simply click on the link(s) provided, fill out the appropriate form, and we’ll take care of the rest.
