A very warm welcome to everyone who subscribed to IWW Newsletter. Thank you for subscribing to our newsletter.

1. Word of Success

a) For a creative writer, possession of the “truth” is less important than emotional sincerity – George Orwell

b) The greatest part of a writer’s time is spent in reading in order to write. A man will turn over half a library to make a book – Samuel Johnson

2. Editor's Note

I am pleased to inform you that I am back to work after a long break. What did I do during this break? You may wonder. Firstly, I enjoyed some travel in India visiting some places which I have been wanting to visit for a very long time. Secondly, I was unwell for about 3 months. Thirdly, I have been blessed with a second grandchild (this time a granddaughter) and I am visiting her in England.

Submissions are now open and you can submit your contribution in the submission form to all categories from 15th to 25th of each month. For Short stories, each month a new theme is given. Only those stories will be considered. The theme for June 2018 is FRIENDSHIP. More details are on the notice board.

As per the new GDPR rules, we have updated our Privacy policy. We will not accept any more submissions from children below 16 years. I have also updated our Terms & Conditions and FAQ pages. Please have a look at those pages.

My apologies to those who had contacted me during this break reg.submissions, for not able to respond to them individually as I was unwell and away from my computer.
