It’s November, bringing us ever-closer to the end of 2018! It’s time for the FWG Blog Post!
For those that missed the announcement last month, membership is now available to self-published authors! For more details on how you can qualify as a self-published author, check out our membership guidelines.
Some highlights from last month, as featured from our FWG Member News section on the forums:
- Pre-orders are live for “Well, It’s Your Cow”, featuring stories by both Madison Keller and Frances Pauli.
- Two more stories by Mary E. Lowd have come out in Daily Science Fiction: “Wing Day” and “Jetpack and Cyborg Wings“.
- By S. ParkS. Park, “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme” will be released in just a couple days! More details can be found on their Tumblr page.
- Televassi has begun a Patreon for his stories! Check it out and support him if you like his work.
To our members that have had something exciting happen in the past month not featured here: be sure to keep up with your Member News thread on the forums! Not only is this how we get our information, but these threads are able to be viewed by any person logged into the forums. Share your achievements with the rest of the writing community!
For those of you looking to submit, keep an eye on the open markets on our website. For those of you who just forget, The Marketplace is your reminder for all things open for submissions!

Special Events and Announcements

In addition to being a Guest of Honor at the upcoming Midwest Furfest, Kyell Gold will also now be a Guest of Honor at Furrydelphia!
Our forums are open to all writers, not just full members of the FWG. Check them out here and join in on the conversation. While you’re there, check out how to join our Slack and Telegram channels. Before joining any of these, though, we ask that you please read up on our Code of Conduct! With all the negative going around in the world these days, both furry and non-furry, we want to make sure the guild feels like a safe place to all its participants, free of threats and hate speech.
We have two weekly chats, called our Coffeehouse Chats! Our first one is Tuesday at 7:00pm EST in our Slack channel, and our other is Thursdays at Noon EST on our forums in the shoutbox. Both of these chats feature writers talking about writing, usually with a central topic. As with the above, these chats are open to both members and non-members.
