Alas, it has been a long time since anyone had the appropriate amount of spare time to assemble a site newsletter. But, after only, oh let's see, a fourteen-month hiatus, WiFs - our newsletter - has returned!

I present issue 3.2 for your reading pleasure. Being that it has been quite some time since the last edition, there is a lot of catch-up to do this time around in covering all the news-worthy things that have gone on around the forum. What can I say except that plenty of things have happened and it only seemed right to bring everyone up to the same speed with this. For those who are unaware, the newsletter - which will return to being a monthly affair - also plays host to various essays, art works, and our member's most quotable gems from around the site. This month also owes huge thanks to Cran who took pity on my lack of a real computer and did the whole layout in record time.

WOW, WF's newsletter.

This was my first time reading it, and I enjoyed every letter of it. I will definitely continue reading it in the future.

And now, a few things:

- Abby, your works are beautiful, I especially liked the leaves on the front page - so simple, yet so powerful. Keep up the good work!
- Secondly, I saw you have a shortage of staff working on the newsletter, so if you want/need to, I'm volunteering to jump in whenever you're needing to ;)

And the last thing: it was too short! :D

The last thing is due to the consideration of file size ~1Mb as much as anything else (time, exhaustion, yada yada). You wouldn't want people reading when they should be working on their next Colors of Fiction submission, would you?

Pops is looking to make this a monthly release. For the next one, think Halloween!

And now that our pdf loading issue seems to be sorted, I will be moving the first two issues over so that they are locally accessible.

ETA: As the nominal publisher, I hope to continue managing the final edits, layout and bedding of each issue; getting the material together was the more difficult task for me.

Yes! What an awesome addition to the site! I'll take eight! :D

Seriously, well done and I enjoyed the read. Now produce more so that I may gorge myself on your words.

Or working on their projects ;) Still, I would like it to be longer, and with more contents, if possible :D

Well, the best we can do right now for your gorging pleasure is offer the back issues of WiFs that you might have missed.
