Women's International Net (WIN), is an electronic magazine about women,
by women, for women, from all over the world.

Women's International Net is an electronic magazine devoted to three
purposes:

* Furthering knowledge of women's issues worldwide;

* Bringing together women from all over the world for dialogue and greater
mutual understanding;

* Tapping new sources of talent in writing and enabling women from
different countries to express their views and situations.

We believe that by comparing our problems and solutions creative energy
can be unleashed for improving the status of women everywhere.

WIN is not affiliated with any institution nor aligned with any political
view. We aim to publish a broad range of opinions on women's issues
throughout the world. Our belief is that free discussion of these issues
is healthy. But we will not accept any writing that is either sexist,
racist, homophobic, nor otherwise discriminatory. All articles will be of
interest to a general, intellectually-oriented audience.

Decisions on publication will be left to the discretion of the editors.
All views expressed in the contents of articles are those solely of the
individual author. All articles, unless otherwise stated, are the
copyright of the magazine. Reprint is by permission only.

WIN will be published monthly. It is available free by E-mail:
winmagazine@geocities.com and through our Web site:

Writer's Guidelines:

WIN Magazine welcomes new writers. We want articles on a wide variety of
subjects of interest to women. The writing style must be accessible to a
general, intellectually-informed audience. The following are examples of
topics on which WIN would like to receive articles:

*Culture *Education *Feminism *Fiction *Family *Finance *Health *Mothering
*Politics *Profiles/Interviews *Psychology *Reviews *Sexuality *Status of
women in a country *Travelogues

Articles can be written in the following styles:

1) Reportage: A detailed report -- from interviews and observations -- on
an issue, person or event. The author may take a point of view.

2) Personal account: An article written in the first person, usually a
personal memoir. Such an account can be blended with reportage.

3) Interview with one or more interesting women which may be focused on a
specific top.

4) Criticism: An essay about a work of art or book.

5) Short vignettes or news items.

6) Short stories or poetry.

This is only a partial listing. WIN is open to specific queries from
authors. WIN will also accept articles that have run in other publications
if the necessary permission has been obtained. Copyright, unless
otherwise indicated, will remain with the magazine.

Articles should be between 200 and 4,000 words. WIN reserves the right to
edit all articles. Editing will be done primarily for reducing length and
clarifying the content for a broad range of readers worldwide. Authors
will have the right to approve all edited articles.

Finally, we invite all authors to send us links to Web sites that can be
mentioned in their article.
