A handful of posts today + some fundraising ideas for the blog (please read and share)

Post date: 29 February 2012
We expect that you have a handful of writings to make as we've completed posting the announcements lurking in our search alerts from December 2011 to January 2012. Unfortunately, there were a few good ones that we missed out on; their deadlines have already passed. But there are other great opportunities that you can check out from today's updates.

So, it's zero backlog for Qlit, officially! Now we can focus on new announcements which we will post as they come.

By the way, for those who are having a hard time reading white font -we're sorry. We will still be using the new template for a few more weeks/ months. But all your comments/ suggestions on the blog design are being noted.

And thank you to those who already donated for the blog. We can't thank you enough. There were only a few who heeded the call but we're not losing hope that we can continue this free service to LGBT writers.

Which brings us to a few fundraising ideas - e.g., a custom blog design for a $50 donation or "have a virtual writing assistant for $10". We know writers do not earn much from their works, so we guess doing something (aside from regularly updating this blog) in return for a donation might work.

We're also thinking of freeing up the middle bar for event/ book advertisements for as low as $15 - $30 a month. Shoot us an e-mail at qlitmail@gmail.com if you're interested. The first one gets the top spot (above the fold) for our thousands of followers to see. We'll post the announcement soon.

That's it for today. Good luck with your writing!
This blog is no longer updated. Please instead visit Writers For Diversity for new opportunities for women/ LGBT writers and writers of color. Thank you.
