Mrs. Hoy,

I’m sure you get many notes of thanks, so here’s just another. I’ve gotten your e-newsletter for years now. I was a writer for a trade magazine in what seems like a previous life. Writing fell off the face of MY planet for over four years and I tucked away the newsletters I received in a nice electronic folder for “someday”.

Finally I’ve picked up some of my old stories and have started seriously reviewing available markets and getting legitimate (and illegitimate) ideas down on paper. “Freelance” is a scary beast with sharp teeth to me, but it would be completely unapproachable without information from WritersWeekly. It gives me the courage I need to go slay the dragon… or at least wave my sword around and get the dragon riled up enough to hopefully provide some flaming rejection letters!
