The Guild’s intrepid newsletter editor, Laura Roberts, is starting her own business with the sad result for the Guild that she has reluctantly announced she must give up editing the Guild’s monthly newsletter. She will produce the July issue and is willing to talk with anyone interested in taking on this platform-building opportunity.
Laura successfully migrated our digital version of the newsletter from an attached pdf file to an online version sent out monthly via MailChimp, one of several email content management systems. MailChimp is free to use (the limits on numbers of messages and addressees is very generously above our long-range plans). Getting familiar with how to use this application is a plus for anyone who hasn’t already ventured into building email lists for marketing books.
