Member Monday – Our Blog Needs You


Happy Monday WNBA-NYC Members! This is Liberty Schauf, the new Blog and Social Media Manager, and I am reaching out asking for your participation in OUR blog. The blog doesn’t belong to just one person it belongs to every member of WNBA-NYC. We are a group of authors, editors, publishers, librarians, booksellers, agents, designers, illustrators and production and management professionals and we all have a different voice and writing style. Our blog should reflect everyone in some way. Below are a few ways to contribute to our blog.

  • Answer the Question of the Month. Every month a new question is asked related to your favorite reads. This month the question is: What is your all-time favorite book with a love theme? Answers are posted every Wednesday for the whole month. Send in the title and author and why you think it is the best. Check out last’s week’s answers here.
  • Tell us what is happening with you professionally. Did your manuscript get picked up? Was your short story accepted by a magazine? Are you participating in a publishing panel? We want to celebrate your big news with you. The last Monday of every month is devoted to Member News. This month’s deadline for submissions is Saturday, February 22nd.  Email to Take a look at last month’s Member News blog here.
