Squills is a member-run newsletter dedicated to keeping you up-to-date with all important events and trends on YWS. It is run exclusively for you, the YWS community, and thus cannot exist without you!

You can be part of the synthesis of the newsletter by participating in any of the following ways.

1. Submitting Articles:


One of the most basic ways that you can be a part of the Squills community is by submitting an original article. We appreciate the effort and time put into all submissions, but please note that any articles sent in will be edited by the Squills team before publication.

To submit an article, post the text in a PM to @SquillsBot . If you use BBCode or include anything other than plain text, please submit your article in a code field by using the following code:

Code: Select all
[code]Place article text here.[/code]


The deadline to be posted for the following Squills is 7:30 pm GMT on Saturday. Squills is posted at 8:00 pm GMT on Saturday so that it is available Sunday mornings for members in New Zealand and enjoyed by YWSers all over the globe as Sunday slowly turns over.

Remember that like anything on YWS, posts for Squills should be family friendly and written using proper grammar where applicable.


2. The Girl with the Golden Pen:


If you’re full not of information but instead are full of questions, or if you’re interested in soliciting some advice on your writing, send a letter to the Squill’s advice columnist, The Girl with the Golden Pen. Post your questions on her topic in The Lounge to allow other users to draw attention to your inquiry by liking the post. Then sit back and see if your question will be featured in the next issue of Squills!


3. Shameless Plugs:


We love to run articles and questions, but we also love to advertise for you. Let people know about your new blog, a poem or story you’re looking for reviews on, or a forum thread you’d like more traffic on through Squills’ Shameless Plugs. PM @SquillsBot with the exact formatting of your advertisement, contained in the following code.

Code: Select all
[code]Place advertisement here.[/code]



4. Shout Box:


Lastly, if a status update or a Lounge thread just doesn’t cut it for your announcement, rant, joke, or greeting, send a PM with your content to @SquillsBot to be featured in the weekly Shout Box.


If you are interested in becoming a regular contributor to Squills, once again, send a PM to the very-popular @SquillsBot to get started!
