An Update on the Magazine, One Week After Release (for those curious about such things...)
Let’s be clear at the outset about the purpose of The Inner Circle Writers’ Magazine.
It exists as a communication channel for you, the reader, who is probably also a writer.
The idea is to create a whole new venue for you to display your own work, to find out what is available from others, to become enlightened about the field of fiction and writing, and to be entertained by your peers. With this in mind, it contains an immense variety of material from all over the world, dealing with a huge range of topics, and includes in-depth studies of particular areas, insights, tips, links to useful places, feedback from people across the planet, and new and classic fiction for your enjoyment.
As a writer, you have certain needs, some of which you might be unaware of, and the magazine was created to fulfil many of those needs, even some you didn’t know you had.
Its secondary purpose was and is to create money for me as a publisher, but I’m not and never have been seeking to make a fortune from it or from anything else that Clarendon House Publications does. I need enough to be able to continue doing what I’m doing, to pay my bills and to support my family. If I wanted vast wealth, I’m in the wrong game, believe me. And part of that money is for you - I want the magazine to generate enough funds to be able to pay its contributors well for their accepted work.
Having established that, let’s take a look at what has happened since the magazine was released a week ago, and what that means for the future.
