Issue 11:01Welcome to the first issue of Perilous Adventures: the writers newsletter for 2009.

We hope 2008 was a rewarding year for you and your writing. Like us, perhaps, after all the frivolities of Christmas and New Year, you’re looking forward to refreshing your commitment to your writing, and finding new ways to stretch and improve your craft.

This year, the newsletter will be coming to you every two months.

We welcome contributions from the writing community: fact, fiction or something in between. You can send your contributions to us at:

Late last year, we launched our Friends of Olvar program. We’re delighted to welcome those of you who’ve already joined, and look forward to sharing your writing successes with you, and writing about them in the upcoming newsletters.

warm regards,

nike & inga
