This is the second installment of a feature from Eileen in our Technical Services department. In addition to many other duties, Eileen receives and processes all of the magazines for our collection. She gets to see everything that’s new and exciting in these magazines before anyone else, so she’s offered to share some of what caught her eye this month in Magazine Moments.
Since it is National Novel Writing month, Writer’s Digest Magazine may give you some helpful tips about writing a novel. Under the heading ‘It’s Never Too Late!’ there are 8 articles dedicated to be an inspiration to people who are either just starting out or rekindling the thought of writing a book.
