What began a few years ago in 1998 as a bi-monthly paper based newsletter for faith-based organizations has grown up to embrace today’s technology. As one of the contributing writers, Holly ‘Hunnie’ Parker stated on Facebook…“An awesome chance to check out a lot of talent, awesome eZine.” I couldn’t agree with her more.
A reader, Erwin Scofield, wrote on the Fan page… “Just wanted to stop by to say that this evolution of The Village Griot was definately worth the wait. An AWESOME Job, I tell you!!!! Sharon, You and your team are amazing.”
Without the love and support of contributors -who by the way look for no compensation, just exposure- this publication could not exist. Published quarterly for now, The Village Griot eZine can only soar higher. Anyone interested in becoming a contributing writer of poetry, articles, essays, how to’s, tech advice and storytelling will be considered if they follow the guidelines.
I am humbled by the votes of acceptance this first ‘out of the box’ issue has received.
