Hi, I hope you’re having a swell week. (Isn’t it time “swell” returns to cultural prominence?) Along with tips and advice, there are a lot of contests and submissions below. My goal is to help you prosper as a writer. If you think there’s something I can do to make this email better, please let me know.
