Share Your Creativity!

The Write Stuff, Ventura County Writers Club’s bi-monthly newsletter, is looking for a wide range of material from their members. Our newsletter gives you a platform to showcase your talents, as well as build your writing portfolio.

We are looking for:

  • Poetry
  • Short essays
  • Book releases
  • Event announcements
  • How-to articles
  • Memoir excerpts
  • Short stories (400-500 words) or excerpts
  • Jokes and quotes
  • Travel and adventures
  • Comedic pieces
  • Aphorisms
  • Sound offs
  • Pet Peeves in writing and publishing
  • Promotional tips
  • Self-publishing versus traditional publishing
  • Members’ celebrating birthdays
  • Members’ milestones

Submit your articles and stories to Carol Malone at Your story will be treated gently by our editors. If we believe edits could be applied, or we have questions, it will be returned to you as a courtesy for your approval.

Format for submissions are single- or double-spaced, 12-point Times New Roman or Courier, 1-inch margins all around. The average article is 500 words long.  The submissions are due on the 10th of the month.  Please remember that we do not have a December newsletter, and that our printing layout may not allow us to print your piece in our next publication, but your submission will be held in reserve for a future newsletter.

It is your newsletter. You have the power to add your talents to its pages.
