iww eJournal 2012- Issue No.2, February 2012
Welcome to the second issue of the iww e-journal.
The magazine is two months old now. We are fortunate and happy to say that the very first issue of the journal has received overwhelming response by way of readership, comments, interactions on the site and appreciation.
The e-zine was conceptualized with a view to presenting a compact forum replete with varied forms of creative and thought provoking write ups – poems, articles, blogs, short stories, book reviews. From the initial response, we infer that we have been successful in our presentation. However, our aspirations soar high buoyed by our recent achievements. We wish to scale greater heights.
The iww portal is always on the lookout for new writers and contributors – fresh thoughts, novel ideas, distinctive ideologies and diverse penning styles. Though, it is primarily a literary outlet for Indian women, yet we are open to showcasing talents of our male co-writers as well. In keeping with our motto, we include, in this issue, a short essay by Shri Jitendra Mathur, under the Section “As You Say”. We also extend a warm welcome to our new story tellers – Malavika, Shatakshi,Shraddha and Shefali. You can read them under the “Short Story” and "Poem" Sections.
But most of all, we have a lot more expectations from you – our readers. We are greedy of your continued support and eager to know your views about our site offerings. So do not hesitate to post your comments and interact with our writers. It is the collaborative interchanges between the writers and the readers that pave the way for stronger eclectic ties and improved, constructive and evocative creations.
