    Feature me!

    With the new transition of Witch Weekly, we're looking to get back to our gossip rag roots. That being said, we still want to make sure our members are a-okay with their characters being mentioned and speculated about.

    In order to have your characters featured by name, please add them to this list.

    If your characters are not listed on this, we reserve the right to publish articles about them with the stipulation that they will not be mentioned by name, but referred to with a descriptive moniker as outlined here.

    Advertisements!
    In order to have your shops featured in the advertisements section, please add them to this list.

    Ask Harmony Aidsworth!
    Any character can write in to Harmony Aidsworth, for any sort of problem you have! Harmony will answer questions about your love life, give advice for how to deal with difficult friends and relatives, or even give you some tips on how to get that persistent stain out of your favorite skirt.

    To have your character's letter featured in an article of Witch Weekly, PM @Ophelia Dippet with your letter only; Harmony's reply will be written by our staff! Your letter will be published with a moniker; you can include the one you want to use or leave it off and we'll assign one. You can feel free to put these letters in the Letters & Journals forum, but in order to be included they must be PM'd to Lynn. Please allow at least a week between the date you sent it in and the date you'd like it to appear--e.g., if you sent in a letter on Friday, it might not appear until the following Sunday's issue.

    Letters From Our Readers!
    As above, but without the advice element. Depending on the content of your letter, it may be published as-is, or there may be a magazine staff written response published as well.

    To have your character's letter featured in an article of Witch Weekly, PM @Ophelia Dippet with your letter. Your letter will be published with a moniker; you can include the one you want to use or leave it off and we'll assign one.

Please allow at least a week between the date you sent it in and the date you'd like it to appear--e.g., if you sent in a letter on Friday, it might not appear until the following Sunday's issue.

    Lonely Hearts!
    Much like sending in letters or advice, have a character submit an anonymous personal ad to Witch Weekly for the Lonely Hearts column or respond to one posted in a previous issue. If unsure, refer to an old Lonely Hearts article for ideas on how and what to write or do a little research into Lonely Hearts columns in the 1800's for inspiration. PM your Lonely Hearts submissions to @Ursula Black and get creative! Bonus points if you generate plots from this.

    Lonely Heart submissions will run in 1-3 consecutive articles, or until a response is generated.

    Missed Connections!
    These are very similar to 'Lonely Hearts' in theme, but differ in format. These are self-contained stories describing an interaction your character (or an NPC) had either at a ball, in the street, in a shop, or really anywhere at all. If you didn't catch their name, later forgot it, or lost their card, write in a brief story describing how you met and ask them to send a response. These are formatted a bit like the Missed Connections on Craigslist if you need a reference!

    PM your Missed Connections submissions to @Ophelia Dippet and allow at least one week before they appear in the magazine! Letters will be published with an epaulet for both the writer and the 'connection,' (ie., 'Shy Suitor seeks Buxom Blonde') and you can either provide the names yourself or let us come up with them.

    Heard Around Town
    Occasionally, we'll publish a selection of gossip 'heard around town;' this is essentially like the Rumor Mill, but more outlandish and generally rather baseless. You can send potential 'overheard rumors' to @Ophelia Dippet. These rumors can include characters that are not your own, but publishing is at Wench discretion and they may be edited/made more anonymous before being published. Rumors in Witch Weekly do not affect reputation. We typically only run one of these types of articles per month at most, so if we do decide to publish your rumor with others it may be several weeks later.

    Regarding The Election

    During the 1887 election, candidates will have a few additional options for being featured in Witch Weekly. No candidate is required do any of these, but they will help you reach a wider base and may increase your chances of getting on the final ballot!

    The fact that your candidate is running means you consent to having them mentioned in either a positive or negative light in Witch Weekly. We won't ask first; that's politics.

    CANDIDATE PROFILES | These will be done in interview format and run as feature articles or as side articles. Contact Lynn if you are interested, and one of the Wenches will PM your character a questionnaire to fill out. The actual article (with whatever commentary we choose to add) will be written by the Wench. We will do our best to get you the date you want for your profile but may need to bump things around to accommodate other events! These are first-come, first-serve, and we may not be able to fit yours in with the remaining weeks before the election.

    EVENT PROFILES | These will follow fundraising or campaign events and will be run as side articles. As a general rule, a Wench will not cover your campaign event unless Witch Weekly is specifically invited. Contact Lynn to request coverage. A Wench may be in touch to clarify some details, but the article will mostly be written without your oversight and may include negative aspects of the event if we find any.

    CAMPAIGN ADS | Run as ads. Any MC or UC character can purchase one of these. Contact Lynn with the text and general layout of the ad. You can also include line drawings you would like as images (no photographs), but you do not need to make the ad yourself or have any graphics capabilities in order to order an ad.
