Smart Writers Newsletter - a Good Time to Subscribe!

I've mentioned the free Smart Writers Newsletter a few times in this blog.

I thought I'd mention it again now, because Smart Writers' publishers, The WCCL Network, have just announced that all members of my forum at will be receiving the newsletter automatically if they have opted to receive email updates in their forum Profile.

If you're an MWC member and have selected this option, you can therefore expect to start receiving Smart Writers from the middle of November. Sorry if I'm spoiling the surprise by telling you now ;-)

If you're an MWC member and want to arrange that you don't get Smart Writers, it's easy to do. Just log in to your account, click on 'Profile' in the header menu, click 'Notifications & Email', and ensure that the 'Receive forum announcements and important notifications by email' box is unchecked. If you're still unsure, WCCL have also produced a video that shows you how to do this step by step - please click here to view it.

If you are an MWC member with email updates enabled and already subscribe to Smart Writers, unfortunately you will receive two copies from mid-November. I understand from WCCL that because two separate subscription mechanisms are involved, it is impossible to prevent this. To avoid duplication, you will therefore need to unsubscribe from one or the other - preferably via your forum Profile settings.

For those who don't know, Smart Writers is a neatly produced email newsletter that comes out once a week (with a weekly product recommendation email as well). Yes, it promotes WCCL's range of writing products (surprise, surprise!), but it also includes interesting articles about writing, inspirational quotations, product recommendations, snippets of news, and much more. I've posted a sample issue here for your interest. I do highly recommend subscribing (and you can, of course, unsubscribe at any time).

And here's an important thing I wanted to mention. If you subscribe to Smart Writers now via WCCL's Writers Giveaway site, not only will you get the newsletter sent to you for as long (or short) as you want, you can also take your pick from thousands of dollars' worth of writing software, e-books, and so on. As I understand it, subscribers via my forum will not qualify for these bonuses.

If you want to receive Smart Writers, then, my advice is to subscribe via the Writers Giveaway site now to get your hands on all the freebies. If you're an MWC member, to avoid duplication you can then opt out of having the newsletter delivered to you via the forum. If you're an MWC member and you don't want to receive Smart Writers at all, just ensure that your Profile preferences are set as described above, and that will be the end of the matter.

Phew! Hope that's all clear now, but please let me know if not!
